About the Talk.
Gules English is the co-founder along with his brother Nick of the Bremont Watch Company. Bremont is a luxury, aviation themed British watchmaker based in England. Annual production is approximately 8,000-10,000 pieces.
The brothers inherited some practical mechanical experience from their father Dr Euan English, ranging from clock assembly to aeroplane- and yacht construction. On 4 March 1995 Euan English was killed and Nick was badly injured when their World War II-vintage Harvard aircraft crashed during a training flight for an air show. The crash spurred the brothers to sell watches.
Since its founding, Bremont claims to have received awards in various fields: HSBC Global Connections, overall winner, 2013; UK Retail Jewellery Awards, double winner, 2013; Luxury Briefing Awards, ‘Breakthrough Brand’, 2012; UK Jewellery Awards, ‘Watch Brand of the Year Award’, 2011.
The Like Minds Business Breakfasts are held at the stunning Luxury Business Members Club 12 Hay Hill in London’s Mayfair. If you are interested in membership please ask for a tour of the club after the event. 12 Hay Hill is becoming the luxury business venue for established London-based entrepreneurs and emerging international figures.
The format is informal networking over a breakfast of tea, coffee and pastries, before a brief talk followed by a Q&A session. Guests are invited to stay for as long as they like afterwards and use the 12 Hay Hill co-working space.
A short interview with each speaker will be shot and the event will be blogged and posted in the Articles section of the site by the end of the week.
