Striving for Excellence: Oli Norman from itison – 31st August
A state-of-the-art workplace, fully stocked prosecco bar and beer fridge, duvet days and a yoga space are just some of the staff perks which helped catapult itison into The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list earlier this year.
Ever wondered what it’s like to work in the coolest office ever? Want to know about the entrepreneur behind the business? Then hop on the Perthshire Businesswomen’s Network bus and come with us on a trip to Glasgow.
Oli Norman, the founder of itison and DADA will welcome us to his not so humble abode and entertain us with his entrepreneurial journey which, by his own admission, includes breaking royal scandals in the world of journalism, cracking cases training as a lawyer, and writing TV shows (as well as appearing in a few).
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 & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In September 2010, Oli launched itison and the rest is history.
At work, Oli is focussed 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.
The bus will depart from Broxden Park & Ride in Perth at 5pm on 31st August (5.15pm Departure) and then will return to Perth from Glasgow’s Merchant City at 9pm (arrival Perth estimated at 10.15pm). Coach Transport is included in your ticket price for this event.
For those travelling direct to Glasgow by other means, the event will start at 6.30pm prompt.
