Confirmed speakers:

Tessa Clarke, OLIO

Tessa Clarke is the Co-Founder & CEO of OLIO, the world's only neighbour-to-neighbour food sharing app, with over 1 million users worldwide.

After studying Social & Political Sciences at Cambridge University, Tessa became a strategy consultant with the Boston Consulting Group.  She then joined Emap Plc, working for a variety of brands including FHM magazine, Magic radio, Nursing Times and Retail Week.

Next Tessa joined Dyson as their first C-level director responsible for taking Dyson digital. She worked closely alongside James Dyson and the rest of the senior management team for 4 years.  She then joined PayLater as MD, before taking over Wonga UK to kick-start its turnaround.

It was when moving country on her 2nd maternity leave that Tessa had the 'lightbulb' moment for OLIO.  The moving men had told her to throw away all her food, and unwilling to do this, she had set out onto the streets to find someone to share it with, and failed. Thus the idea for OLIO was born - a food sharing app that connects users with food they don't want or need, with neighbours living nearby who would like it.

In just over 3 years, 1 million people have joined OLIO and 1.5 million portions of food have been shared.  This is largely thanks to the 30,000+ volunteers who have become OLIO Ambassadors in their local communities. and the 4,000 Food Waste Heroes who are collecting and redistributing unsold food from local businesses via the app.

In 2018 OLIO's pioneering work was recognised by the United Nations as an example of a truly scalable solution to the problem of climate change, and given a coveted "Momentum for Change" award.  OLIO has also won numerous other awards including Chivas The Venture in the UK, The Europas, Sustainable Cities, Feel Good Brands and the Digital Agenda Impact Awards.  OLIO is a member of the Mayor of London's international Business Programme, is part of the select Upscale programme and in 2018 was accepted as an Unreasonable company.

Tessa is a knowledgeable and engaging speaker, who talks on a range of topics, including The Entrepreneurial Journey, innovation, 'tech for good', diversity, the future of business and work, and sustainability.

Fraser Doherty, SuperJam & Beer 52

“My story shows that what can start as a passion, with love and hard work, can grow into something amazing. Something that changes your life.”

Fraser Doherty started his incredible business career at the age of just fourteen. After being taught how to make jam in his Grandmother’s kitchen in Scotland, he came up with a way of making jam 100% from fruit. At sixteen, he presented his brand, SuperJam, to Waitrose and went on to become the youngest ever supplier to a major supermarket.

SuperJam has since grown into a company that has sold many millions of jars through thousands of supermarkets around the world. As well as being a commercial success, the business has invested in successful charitable projects - running hundreds of free tea parties for the elderly and setting up hundreds of community beekeeping projects.

Fraser has been commended by the Prime Minister at Downing Street, by HRH Prince Charles and was recently awarded a medal (MBE) “for services to business” by The Queen. He has shared his incredible story at more than 500+ conferences in 27 countries around the world, as well as in his best-selling books SuperBusiness - published in UK, US, Australia, Korea and Japan, 48 Hour Startup – published in the UK, US, Netherlands and Korea and The SuperJam Cookbook.

He is also the co-founder of Beer52; the world’s largest craft beer club and one of Scotland’s fastest-growing startup companies with more than 200,000 customers, shipping 50,000+ cases of beer a month and producing the world’s No. 1 craft beer magazine, Ferment.

What You Say

The students LOVED Joe from Innocent, they felt he spoke to them on their level

Aylesbury grammar School

The trip was great thank you. The lectures were very good too, the speakers gave some really great information about Business and ICT and the Business students commented that it would really help them when they came to complete their case study work in year 13.

Fort Pitt Grammar School

Good level of content about Superdry for A Level. Excellent insight into culture for Business - both Innocent and Superdry.

Stanwell School

We definitely want to come back next year. Your trip represented better value for money than the rival company as the pupils had one more day in the park.
