    Staying Resilient: A Conversation on Bouncing Back in Tough Times
    It’s easy to feel overwhelmed given current events, but it’s important – perhaps now more than ever – to remain calm, cool, and collected during these times of uncertainty. In this episode of The Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network (DWEN) Podcast, public speaker Jenny Garrett and Erica Brennes from Real Mom, Real Tired have a conversation about how we can maintain resiliency by identifying what we can control, what we can influence, and what’s outside our power during this time.

    #8: How to innovate & keep your brand relevant in 2020 with Jim Cregan

    #8: How to innovate & keep your brand relevant in 2020 with Jim Cregan

    Welcome to Episode #8 from the Festival Of Enterprise Podcast 2020.
    "We rock in with almost a crocodile, an inflatable crocodile under our arm and they're like, who are these jokers? But actually they quite like the fact that we're not corporate. So if anyone is starting up a business, just be yourself because there are so many suits and so many pointy shoes and so much of that tie stuff going on that if you just be yourself and you will stand out that way. I'm not saying don't wear a suit because there are people here wearing suits. Be yourself because that's, that's why we've got to where we've got to and that's why they still will respond to us first, you know, on email, and they will ignore our sales guy for six months who will be trying to get them all the time and then we drop them a mail and they respond straightaway because they they like the chat. We chat to them as if we're talking to a mate in the pub because at the end of the day, they're just humans."
    I chat this week to Jim Cregan, founder of Jimmy's Iced Coffee. Find out why looking at a builder's backside was the catalyst that led to Jimmy's version of iced coffee, now stocked in pretty much every UK supermarket. Hear about the crazy things that Jim gets up to to spread the word about his drinks.
    You can ask Jimmy, your questions live in April at the Festival Of Enterprise in London.

    Trailer for #8 How to innovate & keep your brand relevant in 2020 with Jim Cregan

    Welcome to the trailer for Episode #8, Season 2 of the Festival Of Enterprise podcast 2020.
    "It's really quite complicated doing international because you don't know whether you just pick up the phone and ring a supermarket buyer in some country, or you work with a distribution company. And if you work with a distribution company, do you have to pay for the marketing? Or do they pay for the marketing? Or do you split it down the middle and then end up splitting hairs and saying, I paid for this and I pay for this? And we had out of the blue company in Cyprus rang us the other day, a distribution company, they said - Can we buy a few pallets off you we want to put it into these supermarkets?"
    Joining me later this week for the full episode will be Jim Cregan, founder of Jimmy's Iced Coffee. Jim joins me to talk about how he went from British building site to Australia and back again in the process, launching his own brand of iced coffee. We talk about brand building through university tastings, his ride clubs, cinema club and festivals. You can get your free ticket to see Jim live at this year's Festival of Enterprise.

    #7: How to add additional revenue streams to your business with Sabrina Stocker

    #7: How to add additional revenue streams to your business with Sabrina Stocker

    Welcome to Episode #7 from the Festival Of Enterprise Podcast 2020.
    "Coming off something like The Apprentice, I get so many messages every single day. Do you want to start a business? Would you like to go into, you know, coaching and consulting or the third one is profit share. And I stay away from profit share 100% of the time, because if I'm working on somebody else's business and have this percentage, usually it's 20-25%. It's not me making the calls. And it's not me helping them out. It's all about them because it's their business. And I think, especially if you're not an established business person, which you know, I'm not I'm still I'm still young, I'm still a baby business, I'm still a baby businesswoman. If I start taking on too many things, I lose the focus on what she really matters, and that's growing my business."
    I chat to Sabrina Stocker, best known for appearing on the BBC One show The Apprentice. She's also a successful entrepreneur, having launched My Tennis Events in 2016 with zero capital. She started her first business at the age of just 14 and became the youngest person ever to graduate from Edinburgh Business School with distinction. The London born entrepreneur also won the prestigious Queen Tennis Tournament age just 12. Like most entrepreneurs, she's got eyes on other opportunities.
    You can see her She started her first business at the age of just 14 and became the youngest person ever to graduate from Edinburgh business school with distinction.
