  • Lovework’s First Birthday: A Celebration of Enterprise!

    71

    Wow! What a fantastic way to celebrate Lovework’s first birthday!

    We had an amazing turnout of over 200 people to network at Sofa.com’s beautiful showroom in Chelsea. What an apt way to celebrate our award winning achievements of 2013 whilst ushering 2014 in with a bang! We were joined by some of the most cutting edge and disruptive businesses in the UK and were treated to a warm-hearted and engaging evening.

    Candidates and companies alike lounged on sofa.com’s comfy sofas whilst listening to the inspirational stories of Kathleen Mitchell (VP EMEA of Stella&Dot), Rohan Blacker (co-Founder of sofa.com) and Eamon Fitzgerald (MD of Naked Wines). They discussed business USPs, overcoming obstacles, alternative methods of fund raising and their insight into what makes a candidate successful in the interview process. They even shared some amusing anecdotes which demonstrated that it is never plain-sailing to get to the top and, more importantly, to stay there!

    We shopped to our hearts’ content for stunning ladies’ business attire at The Fold, sparkling jewellery at Stella&Dot, and, our male attendees even gained styling tips courtesy of The Chappar.

    Our taste buds were also well catered for with tipples courtesy of Naked Wines, Sipsmith, Belvoir, Vita Coco and Fever Tree and tasty snacks from Propercorn. Delicious canapés were elegantly served by entrepreneurial catering agency, Lettice and breath was freshened in preparation for the networking thanks to Peppersmith. Those who over indulged in the wine and gin were also able to call on Uber to return home safely and for free! ..Not that anyone was in a hurry to leave as the anticipated 9pm finish soon became 11pm!

    Two things really struck me from the evening: firstly, the extent of innovation in the room, from jewellery to sofas; wine to popcorn; extreme sporting events to sugar free, additive free mints: it was a true celebration of enterprise! Secondly, the strong feeling of solidarity and community spirit among the entrepreneurs. I was touched by the support and care I was shown. In addition, I received so much positive feedback from aspiring business-leaders, attesting to how much more confident they now felt in starting their ventures, in the knowledge that expert-support was so available and forthcoming.

    Here’s to a great 2014 and to seeing many more new ventures started, with the help of such a supportive infrastructure of successful entrepreneurs!
