Megan Thomas' mission is to help other women entrepreneurs succeed, something I think we can all get behind. She has been doing this through her companies Flock, which was conceived in 2014 when 9 female entrepreneurs went to New York City and created a collaborative business experience sharing contacts and pooling resources, and through her PR firm We Are Full Fat. Flock hosts monthly meet ups in London on everything from hiring to creating the perfect pitch. 

Name: Megan-Elizabeth Thomas    ::     Occupation: Communications Strategist, Co-founder of Flock Global and Full Fat PR    ::    Age: 29    ::     City: London    ::    Find me on the web: www.flock.global www.wearefullfat.com @tiniebutmighty (twitter) @missmeganthomas (insta)    ::    Astrological sign: Leo

To cope with a long commute: Meditation, I started Vedic meditation in the summer 2016 and its genuinely changed my life. As someone that normally has 3-6 meetings a day and an event most evenings down time is little to none, so the commute allows me to switch off for 20mins. A particular type of Meditation that REALLY works for me is Vedic, read all about it - http://www.willwilliamsmeditation.co.uk/

Currently watching/listening/reading: Invisibilia, a podcast series by NPR in America. It talks about all the things that happen in the world without us seeing or being aware of them, I've just listened to one that proves that we all copy the people around us all the time, as in you are never fully yourself - majorly interesting, get listening!

Your personal masterpiece: My company Full Fat PR, myself and my two co-founders Ella McWilliam and Sean Harwood started four years ago and since then we've blossomed into what is being called one of the best creative agencies in London. Its been a tough ride, up and down a lot but its been worth it. We work on such amazing clients and I love each and every one of my team for creating such interesting narratives for our campaigns. 

Favorite interview you've done: My favourite interview right now isn't actually on me, its on my Co-founder of Flock Global, Emma Sexton, Flock is a curated global network for entrepreneurs, we provide the tools to help them scale into new countries and beyond! She's given her top tips for being Braver and Bolder in 2017 and they are great! http://runninginheels.com/articles/bolder-braver-work-life-business-tips-2017/

Personal role model: My role models change a lot, I think it's because there are so many amazing people out there that I can't fully commit to one all the time! But at the moment it's one of my best friends Ariane. Ariane was diagnosed with Stage 4b Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last year and has since gone through the horrendous process of chemo. Throughout the entire time she has been so strong, honest and just downright wonderful, she has made me so proud and inspired every day. So, right now, its Ariane cause she is nothing other than epic. You can read about her story here on her blog: https://arianemason.wordpress.com/

What's next: Lots of exciting things are coming in 2017, Flock Global is running a trade mission to New York in May, we've got some places left for businesses so if you're interested in accessing the US market, get in touch! Full Fat is working with such exciting clients and more and more are getting in touch - I'm ready to forget all about 2016, bring it on 2017 - I can feel you're a good one!
