Meet the founder

Hi, I'm Sophie, a business strategist and coach, and the founder behind Market & Me.


With over two decades of experience in commercial development, customer experience, and placemaking across the retail, hospitality, and leisure industries, I bring a wealth of lived experience. My journey in these dynamic sectors has been marked by diverse roles and experiences, providing me with a deep understanding of the intricacies of business operations and strategy.

Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working closely with startups, independent ventures, and SMEs, offering strategic guidance and support at the brand level. From operations and marketing to performance optimization, I've collaborated with businesses of all sizes to drive growth and success.

In addition to my work with individual businesses, I've also played a pivotal role in shaping the commercial landscapes of prominent destinations such as Westfield Shopping Centre and Transport for London (TfL). Leading teams and crafting strategies in these bustling environments has equipped me with invaluable insights into what it takes to thrive in competitive markets.

What sets me apart as a business coach is my hands-on approach and ground-up perspective. Having started from the "floor," I've gained firsthand experience in managing the complexities of these industries, allowing me to identify and capitalize on opportunities for success. Now, as a business coach, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise to help aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners navigate their own paths to success.
