92. The Be Group
The innovative personal development service providing branding, employability and image consultancy
Founder: Bianca Miller
Founded: June 2012
Founded on the premise that all people should be able to access services to support their development and own personal brand, The Be Group’s unique combined offering sets it apart from other leading consultancy companies. With a background in HR and recruitment at international firms, Bianca Miller realised that there was market potential for personal development throughout the life cycle and utilised her past experience to create a three pronged consultancy service; Be Styled, Be Employed and Be Branded. Running for just over a year, the business has already attracted major clients and is now one of the top personal styling services for Westfield London and, as part of an impressive deal with a global bank, has run workshops in universities across the country to encourage women to consider banking as a career option. Looking to the next 12 months there is a series of growth strategies in place, especially for its Be Branded division, as discussions with corporate clients are currently underway regarding managing their graduate training programmes. It seems it really is ‘time to BE’.
