How She Did It
With Helen McGuire, Founder and MD of Hopscotch

In this episode Emilia interviewed Helen McGuire, the Co-founder and MD of Hopscotch. Helen launched Hopscotch in March 2016 whilst seven months pregnant with a mission to enable professional women to play a part in the workplace, no matter what their personal commitments. The company now employs a strong team across its offices in Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong; has grown a community of over 75k women and works with multinationals to SMEs in order to secure jobs, initiatives, skills sessions, events and training for women and companies. Helen is a lead member of the UN Women’s Empowerment Taskforce in the UAE, speaks regularly at Forums regionally and internationally, and is a mum of three little ones.
In our interview we talked about her very inspiring story of how and why she started Hopscotch, how she grew so quickly, the importance of press, how she moved from Dubai to Singapore and started Hopscotch there and of course how she managed doing all this while being pregnant and now having three little ones under 5 and so much more. She also shared her insights and recommendations around PR.

There was so much more goodness so dive right in and listen to Helen’s story, insights and advice.
