Primarily, Collin is Prune’s husband, and important in keeping balance in Prune’s home life!
An entrepreneur himself, and trained as an economist, Collin has done a lot of the behind the scenes work as Prune’s business has grown. He is still very involved, and especially enjoys when the work is filming videos in beautiful Cornish locations!

He is responsible for the look and feel of Prune's website plus the design of her logo and all brand marketing material.

Nat has worked for over 25 years as an interaction designer, running her own company and working with a wide range of clients. She moved away from the commercial world after realising the power that design has to change the world, and started to use this power for positive social and environmental change. She is interested in new opportunities around technology, design and manufacturing, but only when they are truly innovative and make a real difference.
She really enjoys coaching and advising businesses in order to build successful enterprises that create real impact. She discovered Prune’s work online and has become a real advocate for it, so is now delighted to be working with her in order to reach more people and change more lives.
Nicola's areas of professional expertise are business development: strategy, sales and marketing. She has worked for blue chip and start up companies in a diverse range of industries, such as telecoms, e-business, advertising, interior and furniture design, and the organic skincare brand Dr Hauschka. Nicola has a BSc in Business, but believes her experience is what counts - she likes making it happen!

Her interest in energy medicine grew from studying shamanism and plant medicines in the Amazon jungle, where she learnt about indigenous cultures, traditions, as well as being part of a year long research study by ICEERS [International Centre for Ethnobotanical Research & Services]. She has since delved into many other modalities to support her exploration: breath work, qi gong, nutrition, meditation, sound, yoga.
Nicola feels truly honoured to be part of this team supporting Prune's work, and combining her enthusiasm for the language of the soul, energy work and her business experience is the DREAM of all dreams! Nicola lives in Denmark with her boyfriend for life, Martin, who is an artist.
