Me, Vicki Psarias
As an #1 bestselling author, blogger/vlogger, award-winning TV director and filmmaker, TV presenter, and former magazine editor, I regularly collaborate with brands on tailored content, freelance writing, event hosting, lectures/ panel discussions, radio days, ambassadorial work and consultancy. I can also direct, produce, film and edit video content, as well as appear, in campaign films.
I have spoken about female entrepreneurship and maternal mental health in the House of Commons and I contributed to proposed strategy at the Government Equalities Office stakeholder forum on gender equality and economic empowerment.
My new business, a digital video course, The Working Mother’s Academy, upskills moms so they can launch their own digital businesses.
My family and I live in Windsor, Berkshire and this platform is where I share my life and loves.
I often pop up on TV as a presenter and/or expert and have appeared on BBC World News (Beyond 100 Days was broadcast to over 100 million viewers), BBC News, BBC2’s Victoria Derbyshire, ITV’s This Morning, Good Morning Britain, BBC Breakfast, Lorraine, Channel 5 News, E News and SKY News.
Nothing beats the buzz of live TV in my opinion (bar having babies that is!)
I’m also a regular on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Below, I thought I would share some blogging highlights:
I feel incredibly lucky to have collaborated with Jamie Oliver, Westlife, Brad Bird, Ava DuVernay, James Martin, Aldo Zilli and the late Antonio Carluccio OBE to name just some of the legends I’ve had the honour of working with.
When it comes to campaigns, clients have included Google, Yahoo, Vodafone, Nokia, Huawai, Coca Cola, SKODA UK, Land Rover, MG, Philips, Net-A-Porter, Selfridges, Boots, NIVEA UK, bareMinerals UK, Boots, and Superdrug amongst others. All were innovative, engaging, and vitally, authentic campaigns that resonated with my loyal followers.
Being a former filmmaker, I relish attending film premieres and festivals, regularly reviewing movies and interviewing cast and crew members at film junkets.
It was a dream-come-true to interview superstar actress Kim Cattrall recently, as well as attend a Q&A with the great Mindy Kaling, Reece Witherspoon, Oprah, Storm Reid and Ava DuVernay, interviewing Storm and Ava beforehand.
My book is another memorable career momeny. I embarked on a UK book tour for MUMBOSS over 2 years, meeting hundreds of readers all over the country from York to Belfast and beyond.
I have also spoken at Marie Claire’s Future Shapers Live, BritMums Live and on an Influnecer panel at The Internet Advertising Bureau.
Along with Jessica Huie MBE, I co-founded the former ‘Passion into Pounds’ in association with the British Library offering insight into how to turn your ideas into businesses and work on your own terms. These events have trended on Twitter and featured in national press, reaching thousands of entrepreneurial women over the years.
Most importantly, my family and I are committed to using my platform to help others and we regularly take part in charity campaigns both here and abroad. I’m a proud ambassador of Concern Worldwide UK and as a family, we visited Harmony an inclusive choir for Comic Relief in 2017. I also supported Sport Relief in an ambassadorial role in 2016, completing a sponsored race with my children and fundraising for this important cause.
