Your host

Alexandra Forrest

Alexandra Forrest is a freelance podcaster, content creator, facilitator, and lifelong retail enthusiast. 


As founder and host of Independent Thinking, the podcast that explores the future of the UK high street, she discusses bricks and mortar retail, how our towns and cities are evolving and shares the stories of inspirational independent business owners from across the country.


Having been immersed in the world of business from a young age (growing up in a dolls house shop - listen to episode 1 if you're intrigued...), Alexandra is fascinated in the role that retail has in our lives, passionate about the energy and spirit of independent retailers and makers, and curious about exploring the place they have in their communities.


Let’s Work Together

Are you an independent retailer with a compelling story to tell? A changemaker who is breathing new life into your local high street? Perhaps you're looking for a host for a future event?
