Our Story

As normally the lone woman on the sales team, the single lady in the speakers list or panel, I realised it was sometimes a lonely place to be….

With so many things to juggle, I wondered if anyone else felt like I had? A little lost, that maybe they couldn’t make it, that perhaps they lacked confidence? And you know what, I asked a few women who were career minded, had a business, families, partners, marriages. And they had ALL at some point felt the same..

And it suddenly struck me, it’s not about women over men, it’s not women “bitching” about men or other women, but, just women coming together and inspiring each other. Learning from each other, leaning on each other, getting a different perspective, an extra boost.. Either to go for a promotion, achieve a pay rise.. or, just to be the best that they can be.. and Femme Niche was born!

    Never give up. Come out of your comfort zone and always believe in yourself.

Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.
