Julia Langkraehr built three multi-million pound retail businesses in three European countries and now works with entrepreneurial leadership teams to help them grow their businesses.
She moved to London in 1999 and after being made redundant, was an early pioneer of pop-ups, founding and building Retail Profile Europe, which works with shopping centres to create opportunities for start-up retailers.
The business then expanded to two European countries and merged with its largest competitor, Space and People PLC. It now has offices in London, Glasgow, Hamburg, Moscow and Delhi and its turnover exceeds £30 million.
In 2014, she successfully exited and founded Bold Clarity, which provides facilitation and training to help entrepreneurs, CEOs and their leadership teams clarify, simplify and achieve their vision.

She has worked with over 3,000 business owners in 20 countries worldwide.
She regularly gives keynotes presentations for corporates, non-profits and business groups. These include the EO Global Leadership Conference, the Aspire Trailblazing Women Event, the Academy of Chief Executives, companies such as Anytime Fitness, and UK chambers of commerce.
