Description

Join us for our BOUNCE AUTUMN TALK 2017 on Tuesday 24th October with Philip Contini owner of Valvona & Crolla.

Philip will share the story of Valvona & Crolla and how they kept their focus over many years of building an iconic brand. If he’s not turned the family business into a national retailer, it’s because he prefers to be “a large fish in a small pond” and not for want of opportunities. In Edinburgh Valvona & Crolla is certainly a household name, and Contini, who joined the business at the age of 17, has seen it grow from a single shop staffed by family members to a multiple outlet operation employing 100 staff.

At Bounce Talk events we choose speakers who talk frankly and openly about their journeys. They explain the scars and the blood stains. They are not afraid to show their vulnerability. They speak with honesty and with an intent to share and impart their insights. Our events are by invitation only.


WHEN: Tuesday 24th October 2017
TIME: 5.30pm to 8.00pm (drinks and refreshments served)
WHERE: Crowne Plaza Royal Terrace Hotel, Edinburgh EH7 5AQ
FOR WHO: Business Owners & Directors
PRICE: £20.00


Places are strictly limited to 65.

Hope to see you there.


Warmest Regards,

Gerry Forristal
Board Development Director
Bounce Scotland



ABOUT BOUNCE
Bounce was co-founded in January 2013 by eight Edinburgh business owners who had been meeting regularly, acting as non-executive directors to each others businesses.

Bounce means;

Bringing Opportunities, Uniting Non-Execs & Creating Exceptional Events.

Studies have shown that SME's would spend money on hiring a non-exec director for their business but it can often be cost prohibitive and selecting the right person can be a challenge.

Our aim is to establish a number of boards made up of business owners that can act as Non-Executive Directors to each others businesses. This way each business can benefit from the varied skills and knowledge of up to 11 non-execs.

It's true that there are a lot of networking organisations out there; however, we are taking a different approach. BOUNCE is much more involved in the actual functioning of members' businesses and focused on nurturing growth through our collective knowledge and support.

There is also the tremendous benefit of being able to leverage the extended network contained within each board to grow each others businesses and make fully qualified and highly appropriate opportunity referrals. Indeed, across the organisation as whole, the opportunities that will exist as BOUNCE grows will be substantial.

Membership is by invitation and subject to suitability to the board.
