Moore established Pineapple Dance Studios in 1979 in an old pineapple warehouse in London’s Covent Garden and turned it into one of the world’s premier dance centres. She has also launched a range of Pineapple clothing and was the first female chairman to float a company on the London Stock Exchange. “People often ask me what it feels like to be the first woman to take their company public in this country,” she told the audience at the start-studded event, which was supported by Shell. “I always say, ‘I’m astonished it took until 1982 and that it was me – just a girl from Manchester with no A-levels.” Moore was also recognised for her tireless work for charities. She hosts underprivileged children at the studios to encourage and inspire them. Read about the rest of the Women of the Future winners here.
