I am incredibly impressed with what Jo and Polly have managed to create with How People digital membership in such a short time.

Mentoring young women to dream, to act and to connect with others are essential elements to building strong women of the future. I enrolled my daughter in The How People digital membership hoping that her confidence would improve. It seems to be working!

She has benefited from inspiring speakers and practical workshops on many different topics: from personality types, creating a purposeful vision board, to becoming more social media savvy.

She has consistently been introduced to energetic, successful, and authentic female role models, (entrepreneurs, scientists, interior designers, environmentalists) and for that I am so grateful!

Jo and Polly honour parent involvement with timely communication and are appreciative of parent feedback.  The How People’s mission is to “Encourage happiness. Take opportunities. Look after your wellbeing” -and that is exactly what I want for my daughter. Thank you, How People!

"We are born facilitators and connectors. Making things happen and putting the right people together. Giving girls of different generations role models and mentors within different fields. What unites us both in our very different careers is that it was human connections and conversations, often chance ones, and taking opportunities that made, and continue to make, a difference. The education system is putting our kids in boxes earlier and earlier and often young people just haven’t been exposed to or heard about all the options and paths in life"

"The HOW People was born to build confidence. To inspire, support and connect. Showing teenagers that life doesn't begin and end with GCSE’s. To empower the next generation of awesome females.  My parent's mantra when my brothers and I were growing up was 'Give them roots, and give them wings'. The understanding that anything is possible when we put our minds to it, to have belief in ourselves and in our goals, and never let anyone put you in a box. Burn the box! Be who you are, be kind, and support each other, the rest will come."

Amanda Morgan Thomas 


Amanda works super hard with us in the shadows at The HOW People. She is a business mentor, our Head coach and general straight talker. 

Her background in delivering international coaching solutions has been gained over multiple industries. She’s by now totally ancient, has had white hair since she was 17 and yet still enjoys a decent cocktail and a late-night kitchen boogie.  She is an absolutely key piece to the rolling of the HOW cog and we love her for it!
