This Funzing Experience:

Hear a personal story that will leave you buzzing with ideas and loaded with the tools to make it on your own!

Entrepreneur Jonathan Straight tells his remarkable story from one-man start up to floating on the London Stock Exchange and ultimately exiting the business in an eight-figure deal.

Starting with a “eureka moment” Jonathan built the UK’s biggest supplier of waste and recycling containers literally from scratch up to the point where half the households in the country had at least one of his products, in total some 50 million units produced.

Learn how to:

  • Build a market-leading brand
  • Use the media to your advantage and at minimal cost
  • Be in the forefront of your customers’ mind
  • Be successful in the long term

Join Jonathan’s inspiring five-star rated talk which includes his Ten Commandments for any entrepreneur who want to make it big!

Venue: Leaf, West Village

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm
