In the October issue of Business Cornwall magazine, we speak to St Agnes-based entrepreneur Tom Kay, founder of outdoor clothing company, Finisterre.
Finisterre celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, and the inspirational Kay explains how he built the business up from scratch with little industry experience, just a burning desire to create a brand with the kind of sustainable values that he believed in.
He explains how he balances this ideology with commercial practicality and also has some tips for other would-be entrepreneurs thinking of following their passions and striking out on their own.
Also in October’s Business Cornwall magazine, in the wake of one of the wettest summers in history, we hear from local business leaders in the tourism sector on how the season was for them.
With Christmas just around the corner, we have some ideas on where to hold the perfect office party, and we chart the Cornish law firms appearing in the 25th anniversary edition of the Legal 500, the annual independent guide to excellence in the legal sector.
All this plus Jess Billington’s monthly column, SneddonClark coaching advice in the Business Clinic, and a full round-up of all the past month’s news from the various Cornish business sectors.
