The Pluralists Club was developed by Modwenna Rees-Mogg, who realised, as she balanced three companies, two NED roles, a home life and being a published author, that she was not alone in having a Plural career. She soon also realised that there are many more aspiring ‘Pluralists’ who do not have the support structure to guide them in how to develop their own plural career.
She says, “I realised that I was ideally placed to assist people wishing to expand their career horizons in non-traditional directions and to bring together a network of equally highly skilled professionals.”
Modwenna is a serial entrepreneur in the world of finance. She started her career at Kleinwort Benson, before moving to Somerset in 1996. In 2003 she founded AngelNews, the leading reporter on the Angel Industry. Alongside this Modwenna (somehow) finds time to be an NED at Albion Tech & General VCT PLC and Asset Match Ltd and run several Conferences each year. She is also the Co-Founder of CrowdRating. She is a published author, and her next book, a reworking of The Canterbury Tales, will be published once she has had time to write it.
Annabel is a communications and PR specialist having spent more than 15 years working in Financial PR in the City. She then took on a second career of being a full time Mum and has been working closely with Modwenna for the past five years across a range of projects. For the past 3 years Annabel has also been involved in fund raising for the local primary school as the PTA Chair and is always looking for ways to add to her plural career.
Hatty is a content and marketing specialist who has worked with Modwenna in various roles for over 15 years. With previous experience at an education quango, as a property developer and in retail, Hatty is sector-agnostic and has a diverse range of interests. She currently also works in marketing for an environmentally-friendly embalming fluid company, chairs the management committee of her local community centre and sits as a magistrate in the criminal and family courts of Wiltshire.
