At 14, I was taught my Gran’s secret jam recipe in Scotland. I’m now 23 and over the past eight years have built a multimillion dollar company supplying millions of jars of 100% fruit no added sugar SuperJam to over 2,000 supermarkets around the world (Tesco, Wal-Mart etc). I’ve written two best-selling books; The SuperJam Cookbook (Random House) and SuperBusiness (Wiley). I’ve also set up a charity running hundreds of free tea parties for seniors.

– Corporate clients include Kraft Foods, IBM, P&G, Accenture, KPMG, Direct Energy, the NHS.
