A bit more about Linda Plant

Known as ‘The Queen of Mean’ for her no-nonsense interviews on BBC The Apprentice’s final five candidates, Linda provided advice to Lord Alan Sugar over 5 seasons. Today, Linda runs highly successful property development, interior design businesses and her Linda Plant Business Academy.

Linda came from humble beginnings and is now helping others to forge their own careers and business path too, with her Business Academy and personally written Blueprint Business Course.

After leaving school at 16 Linda progressed quickly from selling fashion from a Leeds market stall, to launching her international knitwear brand, Honeysuckle, which she sold for millions.

After taking the company back she later became one of the first women to head a fashion company flotation becoming a PLC.

Linda recently shared her rags to riches story and business advice, at a Prince’s Trust, online event on 6 August 2020.

Targeted at young entrepreneurs, attendees were inspired by Linda’s business expertise, while also acquiring the confidence to grow or start trading. You can find out more about Linda on the following link.
