Tollejo Briefing: Value in Ventures, Fresh Faces & A New Challenge

Hi guys

How are you keeping?


Can you get a story past an FT journalist? 

This month we launched the ‘Quotable Challenge’ – an in-depth interview with an ex-FT journalist to test your story.


Whether it’s product, sustainability, growth strategy or investor comms, your exec team needs to be able to articulate with clarity and confidence.


So bring your best execs. We’ll run them through their paces and show you how to improve.

Value in Ventures 

Hortium has successfully launched to market.


Hortium is already dealing with global brands and retail groups. It’s fascinating to work with Amar Nandha and build a truly disruptive business.


As well as the go-to-market and creative work, we’re helping Hortium to build a partner programme and raise funds.  


Let me know what you think of the new site.
