Women in Business Lunch: new panellist revealed

Maxine Laceby

A new panellist has been revealed for our Women in Business Lunch at Aluna on Thursday 7 July.

Joining us is Maxine Laceby, co-founder and CEO of Absolute Collagen.

Maxine began creating collagen supplements from bone broth from her kitchen table when she was 50 years old.

This led to her cooking up bone broth for the neighbourhood and has now spiralled into a multi-million-pound business.

At the time of starting the company, Maxine had no business experience – but she did not let these doubts stop her.

Absolute Collagen officially launched at the Beauty Show UK in Birmingham in May 2017 and by 2019, it won the ultimate award within the beauty industry – The CEW beauty supplement award.
