When tragedy touched Julia Ogilvy's life, she found herself reassessing the way she lived. Married into a life of privilege - her wedding was attended by the Queen and Princess of Wales - and recently acclaimed Business Woman of the Year, she took the decision to leave her career to found a charity. Her story provides a powerful example of how a successful and glamorous life does not always bring peace - and how her new role gives her the fulfilment she sought. Julia's turning point was the death of baby Cameron, and after telling her story she charts the journeys of others whose lives have been similarly changed, from Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Bob Geldof to a young carer in an impoverished inner city environment. This book will provide inspiration to anyone disillusioned by the empty materialism of society.
Julia Ogilvy is a businesswoman and Entrepreneur. She has won numerous awards, including Scottish Business Woman of the Year, E+Y Social Entrepreneur of the Year, Retail Jeweller of the Year, and was a finalist in the Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the year award. She is founder and chair of Project Scotland, a revolutionally national volunteering organisation which provides development opportunities for 16-25-year-olds. She is an elder in the Church of Scotland, and on the board of St Andrews University and numerous other charities.
