Description

Join us at the Love Your Business Club at Black Ivy, Bruntsfield, featuring inspirational guest speakers, knowledge-sharing workshops, great networking opportunities, then take time out for a game of table tennis in the free, quirky co-working space on Thursday, 25th October, 10am till 12noon and on the last Thursday of every month.

The event is hosted by Michelle, Marketing, PR and Communications professional with over 20 years’ experience devising and implementing creative and impactful on and offline campaigns, for major UK clients including M&S, Costa Coffee, Premier Inn, Geox and Specsavers. Michelle also has first-hand experience running her own successful business, Michelle Brown PR, which was established in 2014 and is a Media & Communications university lecturer and Business Gateway trainer for start-ups and growth businesses across Scotland.

Delighted to announce one of our speakers at the next Love Your Business event at Black Ivy on the 25th October as Michael MacLeod who works for Conde Nast International as Senior Producer on social content for Vogue.

Previously he worked for Instagram, planning and producing editorial coverage on the company's own accounts, including @instagram which has 254m followers.

Michael spent the first 10 years of his career in journalism and TV production in Scotland, which is where I first met him when pitching in regular stories for my clients.

I'm hugely honoured that he's coming up from London to join us at the event this month to not only share insights from his experience working at Instagram but also to discuss the benefits of 'going where the audience is' to connect with the public.

Also joining us will be a true master of selling and coffee expert Brian McGregor, founder of Henry's Coffee Company.

Brian has always been in sales. He counts himself extremely fortunate that his first ever selling role after leaving Edinburgh University was with Mars, where investment in people development and training were a huge focus. His years with Mars included a spell as the youngest ever team member in their export department, when he toured the Middle East as a 21-year-old Overseas Marketing Manager.

The first sip in Brian's coffee selling experience began in May 1988 and he has been steeped in coffee ever since. After almost 3 decades selling for two of Scotland's largest coffee roasters and latterly from his role as Sales Director with Brodies of Edinburgh Brian realised a career long ambition and over 3 years ago, established his own family run coffee business.

The creation of Henrys Coffee Company was prompted by the birth of his first grandson Henry. From a standing start, Brian has built a company that now supplies more than 100 customers across Scotland who lovingly serve upwards of 150,000 cups of Henry's coffee to their customers every month.

Brian will be share some of his learning from his extensive career in sales and telling us what helps Henry's Coffee Company win customers in today's highly competitive coffee market.
