BERKELEY Red CEO James a fantastic day today picking up our business award from Theo Paphitis at the SBS event at the ICC in Birmingham with over 1000 guests and entrepreneurs from all over the U.K.
It was a really interesting and inspiring day – Theo laid on some terrific speakers including the SME head of marketing of Google Raja Saggi and an inspirational and funny 121 chat with Sir Tom Hunter about his rise through business to become Scotland’s first ever billionaire and his philanthropic work.
We picked up some great practical business advice all day; but the one quote that sticks with me from Sir Tom Hunter was- “successful business is just about common sense but the trouble is it’s not very common!”. Also amusing that his breakthrough product was the Shellsuit…. and not all sold in Liverpool!
Overall a really great day for Berkeley Red- lots to take away, some new contacts made and of course the obligatory photo / PR opportunities!
