Throughout the year E2E hosts a spectacular variety of events, from breakfast seminars to private dinners and receptions. These events bring together entrepreneurs, business leaders and policy makers, each with the desire to share ideas and discuss how their experiences can help the next generation of entrepreneurs.
The guest speaker at our most recent dinner was Lawson Muncaster, co-founder and Managing Director of City A.M, the free daily newspaper distributed across London. Prior to founding City A.M, Lawson had a successful career at some of the world’s leading publishers, including Metro International SA, Eurosport and CNN. Newgate Communications, our PR partner, took the opportunity to find out what motivates, inspires and challenges Lawson and other dinner guests who are among some of the most successful entrepreneurs today.
Newgate Communications also spoke to Alexander Amosu, founder of Kamson Luxury Group, a distribution company that represents, acquires and licenses the rights of international brands in Africa. Alexander became a millionaire at the age of 25, having shown an early talent for technology and entrepreneurship. He also holds the Guinness World Record for creating the world’s most expensive suit and is a valued member of E2Exchange’s Board of Directors.
Also in attendance at the dinner was Chantal Coady OBE, founder of the luxury chocolate company, Rococo Chocolates. Chantal founded Rococo in 1983 with a determination to change the way fine chocolate was perceived and presented. She opened her first store on the King’s Road in Chelsea and continues to trade from the same site. The company has since expanded and there are now four main strands to the business; retail shops, chocolate manufacture, B2B export, and e-commerce. In 2014, Chantal’s work was recognised with the very first OBE for Service to Chocolate Making in The Queen’s birthday honours list.
