The Bristol Marketing Meetup is an informal, friendly place for the marketers of Bristol to meet, learn, and share knowledge with one another. Come in 'listen' not 'sell' mode 🙂

This will be one of our first events back after Covid. We just want to get together, say hello, have a chat, and have a nice time.

The focus of the event will therefore be very much focused on that - you meeting other people. For those of you who attended pre-Covid there will be some small changes to help us all achieve that.

- We'll still have a talk - but this will be the single talk of the night rather than the two talks of old.
- It seems sensible to not serve food at the moment, but we will figure out a solution for drinks!

There is no pressure on anyone to come - we will be running events every two months from this point on so take it at a pace you're comfortable with. If you're ready... then let's have a lovely night in the company of some amazin' people.

Speaker: Nick Hussey, FRAHM

Creating an authentic and kinder brand
British entrepreneur, Nick Hussey, draws on his real-world experiences and the knowledge he has gained over the years to help and inspire you to build simple, stronger, loved brands. In 2009, Nick set up a commuter cycling apparel brand, Vulpine. Vulpine attracted investors, grew dramatically and raised over £1million in crowdfunding. But 2017 the business went bust and Nick walked away, having lost it all. He then suffered a nervous breakdown and became suicidal.

Upon his recovery, yearning for a simpler, kinder life, and wanting to save more folk from mental health horrors, Nick set up FRAHM Jacket – a high-end apparel company that's ecommerce only. It’s not just about making and selling lovely stuff, FRAHM donates £10 from every jacket they sell to Campaign Against Living Miserably, the suicide prevention charity. In this talk, Nick discusses how to build and grow a truly authentic, kinder brand and demonstrates how FRAHM reflects his values of creating a positive force in business through his openness to discuss mental health issues.

“He lives and breathes what he does and tells a fantastic, not faceless story. He is changing our perception of marketing.”
— Fashion Journalism by Julie Bradford

And finally...

Please let your marketing friends and colleagues know about this group too, I hope to build it into a great resource for the community over the coming months and years. Attendance will be taken at this event. If you RSVP 'Yes' and then do not come, you will receive a strike. Three strikes and you're outta here! This is simply a measure to allow appropriate respect to the organisers, speakers, sponsors, and your fellow community members 🙂
