* Our Programmes



The Bright Ideas Club is for like-minded people, based on the principles of reciprocity and fun for entrepreneurs.

Mentoring is at the core of the club’s proposition, promoting empowering adult-to-adult relationships in which both mentors and mentees benefit and contribute.

The club runs regular events in a relaxed and informal atmosphere, providing opportunities for members to meet and mix with like-minded people as well as learning from each other.

Meetings provide a structure in which individuals can network, connect with each other and share and solve business problems.  Guest speakers or an expert panel at each meeting discuss a range of business issues.

Club activities are also delivered remotely through technology, with webinars, curated content, mentor matching, discussion forums and signposting to useful resources, along with access to a diverse network of consultants and support.

The next Bright Ideas Club will take place on Thursday, 18 May 2017 at Mintel House, 4 Playhouse Yard, London, EC4V 5EX, starting at 6.15 pm.

Our guest speaker is the inspiring Colin Pyle.

Colin is an Adventurer, Author and Entrepreneur.  After founding and exiting a very successful currency firm in Canada, Colin took to the highways of China in 2010 to shoot the Middle Kingdom Ride with his brother Ryan.  They circumnavigated China by motorcycle and set a Guinness World Record in the process.  The two of them followed this in 2012 with The India Ride; an amazing 54-day circumnavigation of India.  The brothers TV production company G219 Productions produced both shows for the Travel Channel along with books.

Colin’s interest in adventure and entrepreneurialism is further explored in his exclusive interview series, Meet the Founders, with Soho House.  He currently spends his time running his coffee business CRU Kafe, which is an ethical and organic coffee company based in Notting Hill, with co-founder John Quilter and Bodil Blain.
