Wonderful walk to Chapelporth and onion soup in the cafe on New Year’s Day.
Started talking to the guy who appeared to barge to the front of the queue – he did not really but took his girlfriend’s place! Tom is one of the five founders and two investors of Finisterre Clothing based in St Agnes, Cornwall, UK. I told Tom did he realise that it was very unusual to start a company outside the Cambridge Cluster with more than two founders? He looked puzzled!
But even more puzzled when I said that I was very pleased to hear that Holly who worked for him is moving to London to work for Philip Treacy the most sought after milliner in the world.
Holly has been designing and selling hats for a few years and now has her dream job with Philip Teacy. But should Tom have appreciated her talents and offered her an opportunity? Yet another tough decision for the entrepreneurs.
Let us hope that Holly triumphs at Treacy’s titfers and Tom flourishes at Finisterre!
