THE GREATEST HAZARD IS TO RISK NOTHING & THIS LIFE DON'T LAST FORVER

MELINDA KILKENNY / 63years / BUSINESS WOMAN

After graduating from the London School of Economics, Melinda went straight into working for a PR company. 2 years in she thought she could do it herself, so she did! The business grew to be one of the top 5 in the UK and ended up with 10 European and American offices. She worked with Sony launching the 1st CD's and Walkman's, Sky TV when it 1st launched, the BAFTA's, Oscars and the list goes on. Melinda sold her business in the 90's, but she didn't stop there, her career carried on. She is now the proud owner of Manitou an classic sailing yacht once owned by JFK which she races every summer. Learnt to ski, moved to Verbier and started renovating a Tuscan farmhouse, which has taken her 18 years. Melinda has serious girl power!
