Meet the founder

The founder - Sian Conway

My story...

Hi! I’m Sian, and I’m an ethical business mentor. I’m passionate about inspiring and empowering change makers and ethical business owners to create positive impact, reach their goals and create businesses that do good.

Sian Conway - #EthicalHour

I’ve been lucky enough to work all around the world on a wide range of social impact projects. From supporting women to start their own businesses through micro-finance funding in Sierra Leone to engaging underprivileged teenagers in public art to help them change their communities for the better in inner-city Coventry and Birmingham.

I’ve started and run several successful businesses, including ethical fashion brand and blog Little Lotus Boutique, a nationally-recognised contemporary art gallery and an award winning boutique photography studio.

I spent 2 years running a start-up programme for aspiring social entrepreneurs at the University of Leicester and also have a thriving corporate career as head of marketing for a leading tech company, with previous experience in the financial sector.

It’s safe to say I know a fair bit about what it takes to start and run a successful business with social purpose. Through my travels around the world I’ve witnessed first hand the positive social and environmental impact that good businesses can make, and I now dedicate my time to empowering people like you to start and run the ethical business of your dreams!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

What I do...

I regularly appear as a motivational speaker at events across the country and support social enterprises, ethical business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs as a trainer and business coach.

The #1MillionImpactWomen movement brings together female social entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world to have a positive influence on people and planet. The platform aims to bring one million women together by 2020 to form a peer-to-peer support system. I’m proud to be an ambassador for the network, working to connect women in social enterprise and support them to increase the impact of their work.

As founder of the #EthicalHour network, I’m passionate about bringing together ethical business owners and bloggers from around the world, supporting them with the advice and resources they need to grow, and creating a powerful network for social change.

My vision for #EthicalHour is to create an empowered community where people can follow their passions and truly thrive. That way, the ethical economy will grow and ethical living will become the norm.
