Hi, this is my personal 'about me' site and I have used it to write a few words about what I do and to serve as a 'shout out' to where anyone with a great product idea, which could, if nurtured, become a great brand and perhaps might need working capital/assistance to get it off the ground.
My company creates, owns, manages and licenses a portfolio of lifestyle brands within the food, beverage, health, beauty, fashion, homeware accessories, arts & technology sectors which are retailed within the UK, Mainland Europe, the UAE and the USA.
Essentially my team and I operate in a way very similar to that of a record company, we provide the manufacturing, sales, marketing and distribution platform and seek the very best concepts/products/brands to further develop and retail through it. I have an amazingly talented team who are also amongst some of the most well-connected and well-respected people in their fields and our business model is focused on organic brand creation, existing brand extension, brand licensing (of the brands we own or have a vested interest in), brand investment, joint ventures and accretive acquisitions.
Personally I consult worldwide for multinational corporates, brand owners and entrepreneurs seeking advice on how to best maximise their best asset, their intellectual property! In addition, I speak at conferences worldwide on a variety of subjects relating to innovative concepts & disruptive technology and how creating a business from scratch with zero funding, zero support and zero sleep can be done with the right help - which is exactly why I created my business model, which, like everything I have ever done, exists because something like it did not exist when I could have really done with it.
As well as running businesses and brand-scouting, I also guest present in relation to lifestyle brands on the QVC broadcast shopping channel - currently I am regularly live on air with multi-award winning Tasty Little Numbers - the world's first & only portion control brand where all the foods in the range are made to whole numbers of calories.
Tasty Little Numbers exists purely because managing portion sizes is hard and diets are not easy - so we set to 'take the messin' outta guessin' and created a lifestyle brand which fits into any healthy eating plan and consists of everyday tasty foods in smaller portion sizes - so you can eat a little less of what you like with all the portion size issues removed and the taste left in!
However, as everyone knows, size is not everything - I enjoy working with genius individuals who might not be known, powerful, rich or famous but who are incredibly talented and have a great product and just need a way to get themselves and it 'out there'.
If any of what I do is of interest please do get in touch and thank you for taking the time to read this.
