Rachel Parfitt

Founder and owner of R&R Agency Limited an entertainment agency supplying exceptional live music to the corporate events market.
At the age of 11, I was asked the common question “What do you want to be when you’re older?” – without any hesitation – “I want to own my own business”. Fast forward 28 years and I am the owner of a group of companies, the main business being R&R Agency. My passion is business, specifically creating and building businesses and successful brands. Over the past 10 years, I have built two businesses from an idea into successful companies, in two very different industries.

Tim Elliot

Let me introduce myself. I’m Tim Elliott (@TimElliottUK on all the socials) and creativity is my tool for building business success. It’s what I’ve been doing for over 23 years as a professional marketer, believing that brave, creative and innovative thinking is the way to unlock the best from all our work, in every aspect of business.
No matter what industry I’ve worked in, be it for top FMCG brands. Premier League Football clubs, media companies or professional services organisations the key to success has been how they harness their creativity. I’ve delivered digital business models for traditional businesses, upended operating models, and helped flip company thinking to match current trends. All this comes from creative thinking.
