The afternoon session for E&E consisted of talks from three designers that opened a business, telling us their story and advice to us of whom want to go into a business.
The first talker, Lisa Stockton whom I worked with for two months during the summer, gave a talk about her experience to her achievements. A organic orientated business, but also quite niche as not there are not many businesses in the industry that cater to creating foods which are 100% organic. An inspirational talk from Lisa as she gave us advice to how to be prepared for the business setting environment.
Advice given by Jon Sawdon Smith and Ben Terrett was very interesting as they gave very similar advice for those who would want to set up a business in the future. Ben Terrett’s work for the newspaper club was very interesting for us as we can use this type of tool and connection for our degree show.
