About Hayley Harthern
Managing Director of Big Chief Tipi Ltd, Co- Founder of the Manchester PA Network, Avid fundraiser for the Christie Cancer Charity, adrenaline junkie and mum to a 6 month old baby – Hayley Harthern loves a challenge. In 2014, Hayley quit the corporate world, bought a Grade II listed property to renovate and climbed Kilimanjaro for the Christie Cancer Charity. The following few months also saw her run the London Marathon and cycle from Vietnam to Cambodia, raising over £20,000 for charity in doing so. The final cherry on top of the cake was joining the family tipi and awning manufacturing business and then launching her own tipi hire business, Big Chief Tipis, in September 2014. The past three years have seen the business go from strength to strength working with the likes of Michelle Keegan on her wedding to Mark Wright, Glastonbury LoveFeilds for their VIP Glamping hub, and the Queen on her 90th Birthday at Windsor Castle. Hayley devotes her time to pushing boundaries, thinking outside the box and finding the odd hour here or there to sleep. Grateful for her team of wedding-obsessed Little Chiefs, she’s proud of the business she has built and looks forward to the future.
