Simply Be head of marketing, Sinead Donohoe said: “Shaping Success is all about celebrating inspirational women, from all walks of life and in all their shapes and sizes. We worked closely with the7stars and Platform Media to build a podcast series that amplifies and celebrates influential and inspirational female voices, to really connect with our Simply Be audience in a fun and memorable way. We are delighted with the result.”

Shaping Success is about empowering women not just in fashion but in culture. It extends Simply Be’s spring campaign ‘Serious About Shape’, created by House 337, which called for an end to badly fitting clothes.

Taylor Barr, Commercial Strategy Lead at Platform Media, said: “High-quality, thoughtfully produced branded entertainment is an incredibly powerful way for a brand to elevate its marketing strategy. Shaping Success is an inspirational podcast, which will reach, connect with, and engage Simply Be’s target audiences at the right times and in the right spaces. With a combination of fresh, exciting subject matter and high-profile talent, Shaping Success provides Simply Be with authentic and unique content that demands attention and will allow them to forge a deeper, more emotional bond with audiences.”

Vicky Crouch-Marlow, Client Partner at the7stars said: “Simply Be is all about championing women, so we wanted to create an engaging platform to build brand saliency and talkability with culturally relevant conversations. It’s great to work with brave brands that aren’t afraid to try something new and Shaping Success is a complete step change to what’s gone before in terms of creative and media, and we can’t wait to see it roll out.”
