After the year we’ve had, it seems like the whole country has an out-of-office on this August, and fair enough! So we thought this a good time to share the fascinating stories from founders that we have interviewed for the three seasons of our ‘How I Grew My Brand’ podcast series.
Whether you need a break from work or a reason to splay undisturbed on a sun lounger, click here to listen to the inspiring brand stories from the founders of Bloom & Wild, Mindful Chef, Proper, Deliciously Ella, Neom Organics, Sipsmith, Camden Town Brewery, Gymbox, Frame, Charlie Bigham’s, The Collective, Loungers and Flight Club.
We launched the series in 2018 to tell the stories of founders who have grown some of Britain’s most disruptive consumer brands. The idea was to show the link between the personal and business challenges founders face when scaling their businesses, which we have witnessed from over 35 years of working with them.
Over the three seasons, we have showcased their exciting and emotional entrepreneurial journeys to provide other founders with useful insights into the highs and the lows of building a brand and how best to navigate them. Each episode is structured around 7, 17, 70 – the inflexion points we’ve observed that entrepreneurs face, whether that be the number of people, turnover or stores.
The podcasts are hosted by broadcaster Mary Nightingale. On the back of her career-long fascination with entrepreneurial storytelling, she brings her journalistic interviewing skills to the podcast in a manner that disarms founders and allows them to tell their story in a natural and engaging way.
We are excited to be working away on Season 4 and would love your feedback. Please tell our Marketing & Sustainability Manager, Georgia Jones, what you think we could improve or what you enjoy most about our podcasts: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy listening to the wonderful stories.
