Lucy Werner in The Times

‘…due to the increased digital nature of our business, we didn’t need to be tied down to one place and we could work abroad.’

Lucy Werner, author of Hype Yourself and (with Hadrien Chatelet) Brand Yourself, talks with Georgia Lambert in The Times about starting an online consultancy and leaving the UK.

Our lockdown business success allowed us to move to France

My husband, Hadrien, and I met in London in 2015, when we both worked in marketing [says Lucy Werner, 39]. We moved into a terraced home in Homerton in Hackney, east London, in 2016. In 2017, we had our first son. However, in 2019, during the pregnancy of our second child, life got more difficult for us.
