Debbie Wosskow OBE is recognized as one of the most prominent serial entrepreneurs in the UK. She is the current London Evening Standard ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ - awarded to her for her work in scaling businesses, and her successful exit from Love Home Swap, the business she founded and sold to Wyndham Destination Networks for $53m in July 2017.
