Guess what – even more fabulous people have joined The Melting Pot this month! Read on to meet them virtually or enthusiastically wave at them in the coworking space to meet them in reality. 


Sophy Dale is a serial entrepreneur with a background working in the arts, publishing and for literacy charities. Mentoring service-based online entrepreneurs is her third business and she’s passionate about the freedom having an online business can bring you. Sophy said, “My clients are introverts, creatives and purpose-driven entrepreneurs who are frustrated that their business isn’t as successful as they want it to be. Their passion and hard work hasn’t yet turned into reliable income and they’re not sure if they can succeed without selling out. I help them build an ethical and sustainable business so they can earn good money while staying true to themselves.”


Poppy Isaacs works for DMA Global, a leading global payments consultancy. DMA’s core expertise is in remittances, payments systems, financial inclusion and digital payment instruments. Poppy joined us looking for a coworking space with a bit of chat – make sure we live up to our reputation and give her a warm welcome.


Steve Johnson  spent 21 years in the RAF serving as a technician then as an engineer, in 2005 he set up and ran a successful Bed & Breakfast on the Isle of Skye for 6 years selling it in 2011 to concentrate on my flourishing web business which he now runs full time. He’s joined The Melting Pot to develop a presence in Edinburgh, if you have any advice or are in need of a web design agency say hello to Steve.


Nicola Dobson was one of very few people to brave the storms on one of our Open Days, and we’re very glad she did – welcome Nicola! She helps communities take control of their energy needs.
