CBE, Founder of Jo Malone, Author
Jo Malone has been described as an "English scent maverick" and the woman responsible for creating some of the world's most loved fragrances.
Originally a facial therapist, Jo fell in love with fragrance while working from her discreet skin care clinic which she set up from her London home. Discovering an instinctual talent for creating scented products by hand in her kitchen, word of her exceptional positions quickly spread and soon Jo was unable to keep up with demand. From these artisan beginnings, Jo launched her first brand, Jo Malone London, which gained cult status around the world.
In 1999, Jo sold the business to Estée Lauder Companies and remained creative director until she left in 2006.
In November 2011, five years after leaving Jo Malone London, she launched her new brand Jo Loves to global anticipation and in 2014, Jo opened the first Jo Loves store in Belgravia's Elizabeth Street, where coincidentally she began her career as a sixteen year old florist. Bottling her undeniable desire to create beautiful and unexpected fragrances, pioneering new products and entertaining experiences, Jo Loves embodies integrity, creativity, and innovation.
Recognised for her industry expertise, Jo regularly shares her brand building experience with audiences around the world, highlighting her entrepreneurial journey and how she intends to change the way the world wears fragrance for a second time. Jo was awarded a CBE in the June 2018 Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to the British Economy and the GREAT Britain campaign, which promotes British creativity and industry on the international stage. She also contributes to consumer publications in addition to regular radio and TV appearances. Jo's autobiographic "My Story" is published by Simon & Schuster.

Vince Reffet is one half of the Soul Flyers, a duo who have led the way in the world of aerial adventures for well over a decade. Together with his partner Frederic Fugen, he delivers extraordinary, gravity-defying feats to spectators around the world.
From an early age, both boys were introduced to the multidimensional aerial world, as both their parents were veterans of the sky. In 2000, Vince, keen to follow in his parents’ footsteps, made his first solo jump.
In 2002, he joined the French national Freefly team. During the 2004 World Championships in Brazil, the Soul Flyers became the Freefly World Champions. They won gold at two further World Championships in 2006 and 2008. The duo was undefeated from 2004 to 2009. In that time, they ventured into BASE-jumping, canopy piloting, extreme landings, wind tunnel skydiving, wingsuit flying and speed riding.
Both athletes have had a number of film and television roles and now mentor other elite skydivers. In 2015, Reffet also became a protégé of 'Jetman' Yves Rossy, when he was invited to fly like a superhero in a twin formation flight with the Jetman jet-powered wings, soaring up to 200kph over the Burj Khalifa, The Palm Jumeirah, and the Liwa desert.
