Rochelle Humes’ successful singing career, television career, marriage and motherhood sounds exhausting, but she makes it all look easy, and she looks good doing it. She and her former pop star turned DJ and radio host husband are a fantastic looking couple with a great TV presence. I caught them on “This Morning”, this morning and was pleasantly surprised.

And they are in demand for live appearances as they recently presented an award at the British Soap Awards and the BAFTAs. Catch Rochelle with The Saturdays.

Leadership
Founder: Women in Marketing Awards

Women InMarketing is a forum for showcasing and providing thought leadership for female marketers. The essence of WIM is to educate, inspire, engage and empower. It’s delivered by senior practioners in marketing and leadership via online and offline platforms. After six years of successful annual WIM events held in March to celebrate International Women’s day, and with a succession of successful events featuring prominent speakers from high profile brands, it seemed liked the natural next step. I was truly inspired by the amazing women I had recruited to speak, and their contribution to the success of the organisations they worked for or had created. WIM awards was my way of celebrating their success and through them, inspiring the next generation.

Socialite
Viscountess Weymouth

The daughter of a Nigerian oil baron says she faces racism and snobbery from the upper classes unwilling to accept her. ‘There has been some snobbishness, particularly among the much older generation,’ she told society magazine Tatler.

There’s class and then there’s the racial thing. It’s a jungle and I’m going through it and discovering things as I grow up. I’m not super-easily offended but it’s a problem when someone’s making you feel different or separate because of your race. I have never had anything horrible said or happen, but it is something you sense. You can just tell with some people.

Leadership
2013 MILEAD (Moremi Initiative Leadership and Empowerment Development) Fellow

Citing herself as “an engineer of social justice”, Obiocha is dedicated to promoting the rights and causes of women in her community. Her passion for empowering African women led Obiocha to co-found ‘Yaaya’, a response to the social invisibility and negative stereotypes that shadow them in Europe. Established as a platform for women of African descent to share their achievements, stories, and ambitions, Yaaya aims to promote fairer and positive images of African women in European society. Her dream is for ‘Yaaya’ to inspire meaningful dialogue and action amongst organisations, governments, and civil society, on the issues of African women.
