Reaching Millions! The Screw it, Just do it Way!
Most businesses are after one of two things; reaching millions of people or reaching millions of pounds. Sunny Bird PR’s ‘Reaching Millions’ brand has joined forces with the #1 Podcaster and supporter of entrepreneurs, Alex Chisnall, and his brand ‘Screw it, Just do it’ to help businesses do just that, reach their millions.
With an all-star line up from across the business sectors, this one day event coming to Bournemouth, Dorset this October is designed to help you reach your millions.
Hosted by Bournemouth’s Hilton Hotel, the event will host six speakers all hand-picked and invited to share their stories of how they reached their goals. From a diverse range of sectors, the speakers are sure to resonate with everyone. The full line-up will be released over the coming weeks, for now we are very excited to announce the following:
Following a shared passion for health and fitness, husband and wife Alan (CEO) and Juliet Barratt (former CMO), founded sports nutrition start-up, Grenade, during the recession. After launching in 2010 with just £27 in the business bank, Grenade was sold for £72m to Lion Capital last year and since then has continued to grow strongly. It now has over 60 staff, and retails in more than 80 countries around the world. Grenade is now the market-leading sports performance and active nutrition brand, incorporating a wide range of innovative, high-protein and low-sugar products. Grenade has been named as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies and was featured in The Sunday Times’ Fast Track Top 100 in 2014, 2015, 2016 2017 and 2018. It was also included in the Tesco incubator programme in 2018 (alumni include Graze and Deliciously Ella). Alan and Juliet Barratt were named NatWest’s GBEA winners for 2018 and. EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2019 Midlands & South West Winners.
Rowena is one of the six founders of Lush, a cosmetics company with an environmental conscious. Rowena first joined the manufacturing company founded by Mark Constantine and Liz Weir, who made product for Anita Roddick’s The Body Shop. When the relationship with The Body Shop ended, the partners developed a mail order company, Cosmetics-To-Go. And when that failed, the six Lush founders put all their money into a new venture which 25 years later is the multi-national cosmetics company millions of people love. For the year to June 30, 2017 the Poole-headquartered company which now has 932 outlets, including 458 group outlets worldwide, recorded brand turnover of £995 million.

The Screw it, Just do it Way’ event is part of the BOMO Festival which brings together a series of thought leadership conferences in technology and creativity alongside a rich mix of film, theatre, visual arts, literature and music events taking place in Bournemouth during September and October each year.
