So the bad news is that unfortunately Charles Kirchner in unable to make tonight’s event due to unforeseen family circumstances. But… the good news it that we have found not one, but two, speakers to take his place:

Steve Crowe, CEO of Yacht Pages and Directories

Who doesn’t want a super yacht? This is just one of the questions we will be asking Steve Crowe this evening, as he tells us how he markets such high end products in the time of a recession. We look forward to understanding the challenges he has faced as CEO, as he tells us what he does and about his company. How has he marketed such a luxury good in a time of shrinking disposable incomes?

Luke Francis, Designer at Taxi Studio Limited
In order to cater for the creative amongst you, we have managed to bag Luke, a young designer coming to tell us about himself, his career so far and what projects he has been involved in. Taxi Studios are a Clifton based company that describe themselves as ‘fast-growing and award winning creative branding’. They have produced some amazing work for big name clients such as Carlsberg, Coca Cola, Kraft and Clarks. We were particular caught by their recent ‘Clifton Troll Bridge’ video released this Halloween: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO_24sXaiII.
