Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Rachel Clark

Perthshire Busi­ness­women’s Net­work (PBN) is‘Striv­ing for Ex­cel­lence’at an event in Glas­gow this week.

Mem­bers are head­ing to Glas­gow’s Mer­chant City on Thurs­day, August 31 to hear from iti­son’s founder Oli Nor­man, who ear­lier this year saw his firm listed in The Sun­day Times 100 best small com­pa­nies to work for.

Jane Ren­nie, PBN chair­woman, hopes peo­ple will come along to learn more from ex­perts in the in­dus­try.

She said:“Oli em­barked on his real pas­sion at 24, grow­ing busi­nesses and cre­at­ing a place where he wants to work. And, as proud owner of one of the coolest places to work in the UK, it’s a ca­reer move at which he has ex­celled.

“Oli’s first busi­ness, DADA, grew and achieved ex­cit­ing re­sults, and in 2008 Oli was named Ernst and Young En­tre­pre­neur of the Year. In Septem­ber 2010, Oli launched iti­son and the rest is history.

“At work, Oli is fo­cused on strat­egy and in­no­va­tion, help­ing iti­son en­joy ex­cit­ing growth. He also owns Sloans, Glas­gow’s old­est bar and restau­rant, Brel in the West End of Glas­gow, Mag­gie May’s and the iconic Grif­fin Bar op­po­site The King’s Theatre.”

A bus will be leav­ing for the Glas­gow PBN event from Brox­den park and ride at 5pm on Thurs­day, head­ing back at 9pm, and is ex­pected to ar­rive back in Perth at 10.15pm.
