StartUp Spotlight, 29 November: Tom Skinner, Co-founder and Managing Director of Go Up Ltd: www.goup.co.uk

Tuesday 29th November, refreshments and networking at 6pm, talk at 6.15–7 pm in 2.3 Roscoe Building, Brunswick Street


Join us as we welcome former University of Manchester student, Tom Skinner, as he shares his entrepreneurship journey.

After graduating in Management in 2010 and after a couple of years working for a global media agency, Tom co-founded digital marketing agency Go Up. Five years on and the agency has grown to nearly 20 staff operating out of a Shoreditch office and representing clients across a range of industries and budgets.

Go Up have worked with brands across the spectrum, from: John Lewis, Arsenal Football Club, Clarion Events, OCS Group, The Government of Grenada, The Government of Dominica, YouGov, The Government of the British Virgin Islands, to small local businesses.

At StartUp Spotlight Tom will be sharing tips and lessons on getting a business off the ground, why you should ditch the 'start-up' mentality, and, crucially, how to look after yourself and avoid burning out in the process.

Tom’s presentation will be followed by a chance to ask questions to him, and prior to the event there will be refreshments and an opportunity to network.
