INFLUENCING NEW WAYS TO DO 'THINGS'
01 ABOUT ME
IN 2011 I FOUNDED MY VERY OWN BRAND, AFTER 7 YEARS OF GROWING THE BRAND AND INTRODUCING IT INTO OVER 125+ LOCATIONS, I EXITED IN 2016. FOLLOWING FROM THIS THE BRAND HAS CONTINUED TO GROW INTERNATIONALLY AND TURN OVER MILLIONS IN THE PROCESS. I NOW WORK CLOSELY WITH STARTUPS WHO WANT TO ACHIEVE THE VERY SAME RESULTS. I WORK IN BOTH CALIFORNIA AND LONDON, WHAT I CONSIDER THE TWO STARTUP CAPITALS IN THE WORLD. I HELP CLIENTS EXPAND THEIR OPERATION, RAISE INVESTMENT, INCREASE STOCKISTS, BECOME SUSTAINABLE AND ETHICAL AS WELL AS BRAND CREATION AND STRATEGY.
YOU CANNOT BUILD AN EMPIRE OVER NIGHT, THERE IS NO GET RICH QUICK SCHEMES, YOU CANNOT BE THE NEXT BURBERRY IN 6 MONTHS, HOWEVER YOU CAN START TODAY, YOU CAN TAKE ON BIGGER COMPANIES AND THERE IS NOTHING STOPPING YOU FROM BEING THE NEXT BIG BRAND. ASK ME QUESTIONS.
MY KNOWLEDGE LEVEL IN STARTUPS
The brand was now in over 125+ locations around Europe and the US. Turning over £3m a year and having produced and sold over 120,000 pairs of socks. I exited the brand and left it in the hands of a team who are continuing to grow and love the brand.
RUPERT AND BUCKLEY
From the comfort of my student digs I created the first pair of Rupert and Buckley varsity socks. I raised investment and opened several stores across the UK. The products were seen on celebrities and the brand grew quickly.

Moreover, I launched my short self-help video series on Instagram that attracts over 50,000 viewers on average per episode.

I moved to San Francisco to help several startup and growth stage businesses. In that year I helped Lyon and Post LLC expand their operations and reduce costs. I helped Stitch Fix LLC with operations ahead of their IPO and finally worked with Stitch Labs LLC with startup advice as a keynote speaker.
