Alex Depledge MBE

After studying for her master’s degree at the University of Chicago and working on a political campaign there, Alex Depledge returned to the UK to work as a consultant at Accenture. She specialised in customer and channel execution. In 2012, Alex teamed up with her friend and fellow Great British Speaker Jules Coleman to start the online business Hassle.com, now known as ‘Helping’. Impressively, Alex raised the largest VC capital funding ever for a solely female owned business at the time.

What started life as a rather modest booking page allowing users to book all manner of services, became a well-known brand. The duo would go on to sell the company in 2015 for an impressive £24 million.

The following year, the duo set up Resi.co.uk – with Alex as CEO and Jules as CTO – an online architectural platform helping UK homeowners renovate and extend their homes.

Alex is now a popular entrepreneurial speaker, looking at start-up mentality, branding, scaling up a business, overcoming obstacles, the importance of duty of care, diversification, and how to respond to customer needs.

Testimonials

Alex Depledge was an absolute revelation opening our event. Her no-nonsense keynote speech was funny, warm, and full of practical, hard-won insights and tips. It is rare to find speakers who can genuinely combine such rich substance with such an accessible delivery style. Very happy to recommend her for other events.

Alex was absolutely the perfect kick-off for our day. I knew she’d be great but hadn’t realised quite how great.

Just wanted to drop you a note to say a HUGE thank you for being part of our even last night. We’ve had some brilliant feedback already and it’s all down to you.
