Ms. Namita Nayyar:
You left school aged 15 years and established a vast empire of several companies to become a self-made multi-millionaire. Tell us about this fairy tale journey of yours?
Ms. Celia Sawyer:
I wouldn’t call it “fairy tale”. I did pretty badly at school and didn’t come out with any exams, however I always had a feeling inside me that I was here for more and that something I would do one day would make a difference. I didn’t know what or how, but it was such a strong feeling I believed it! I went through various work routes, starting as a dental nurse, purely as I did this on work experience and the dentist liked me enough to offer me a job, qualifications or not.
After this I modeled for a few years, which taught me to use my wits and helped me find my inner voice and what I now call my b****S****radar! I was not very successful, either too short, too tall, too fat too thin, what a terrible business it is in many ways, however from that I went on to start my first business which was a photographers agency. I worked hard, cleaning in my spare time, day in day out seeing advertising execs with a few photographers books, with no luck.
I always believed “never give up” and it paid off as one day the phone did actually ring and it was Saatchi and Saatchi with a big campaign. I guess this reinforced my feelings that you can do anything if you keep trying. From this very moment the business grew and I took on various other avenues, such as work with commercial directors. It was a very exciting time and this experience then made me get into property developing which ultimately led to interior design. The rest is history as they say!
