Here at Comms Unplugged we love to showcase Dorset. And we love gin. So we couldn’t be happier that this year we’re joined by Rupert Holloway, founder of the first gin to be distilled in Dorset – Conker.
Founder and Chief Conkerer - Conker Gin
Date: 13th September 2018
Rupert gave up a successful but unfulfilling career as a chartered surveyor to set up his own business, doing something he knew he’d love.
Blogging his reflections on that huge leap of faith, Rupert wrote: “You need to dedicate the time to think beyond your day-to-day and re-teach yourself how to be creative and innovative. But those skills may be more buried than you think… The common theme running through the world’s most successful people is their unrelenting creativity: their ability to unearth an idea that has value and bring it to reality. Everywhere I looked, I found two essential ingredients for effective creativity:
One: Embracing failure is part of the course of creativity and innovation
Two: You’re most creative when pursuing the things that excite and inspire you.”
Rupert will lead a discussion session on how doing something you love will re-ignite your passion for work and help to distil your creativity to maximum strength and purity!@rupesholloway
