Within an hour of Dragons’ Den being broadcast on 28 August 2016, I had a tweet from a chap I’d never heard of – AJ Joshi.
A couple of days later we had a lengthy telephone conversation, after which he invited me to meet him at the Institute of Directors in London the following Monday. There we talked for nearly four hours about everything from our businesses, manufacturing, politics and the environment, and most importantly we talked about the things we really cared about – people, kindness, and doing what we could for those less fortunate than ourselves.
I was delighted and honored to shake his hand, and so began a relationship where he is helping me develop my business – growing the Plinth business, and developing new and exciting products which actually help people get more out of life, without harming the environment or employing unethical practices.
Working with AJ, I look forward to growing my fledgling British manufacturing business into something which becomes increasingly exciting.
