BUSINESS-FOCUSED members of Scotland’s largest online women’s networking platform, egg, gathered at the new W Hotel in Edinburgh for an exclusive appearance by clean-eating expert Ella Mills, founder of Deliciously Ella. The event, part of egg’s Pathways to Success series, marked the platform’s first in-person event of the year, bringing together female business leaders and creatives to discuss entrepreneurship, plant-based living, and the importance of a robust support network.

Kylie Reid, ‘Head Egg,’ expressed excitement about hosting Ella Mills, saying, “She gave us such a candid insight into the complexities, challenges and joys of starting and running your own business, and crucially the importance of a really strong support network.”

The Women on Top event, held in the hotel’s iconic Ribbon building, drew a sell-out crowd, showcasing the growing influence of egg, which boasts over 100,000 followers and members across Scotland’s five cities.
