Welcome to episode two of our latest podcast series: Enabling Success for Founders and Entrepreneurial Businesses. 

Hosted by our very own Toby Harper, Founder and CEO of Harper James, Enabling Success for Founders and Entrepreneurial Businesses is an in-conversation style business/entrepreneurial podcast series featuring some of our successful clients. Hear them talk about their biggest successes, how they tackled and overcame setbacks, and discover what the key phases of launching and running their businesses were. 

In this episode we speak with Whitney Bromberg-Hawkings, Founder and CEO of FLOWERBX. After almost two decades working with Tom Ford at Gucci, Whitney took the plunge and founded FLOWERBX, growing it to become the first global flower brand. In this podcast we talk about how she built a successful brand and the challenges and successes of expanding into the U.S.

Tips... I think build a strong brand. Look at all the great brands, you can recognise them from down the street, whether it's their icon or their logo, from Apple to Nike. Create a really strong brand identity before you can even think about growing it.
