THE founder of the Swindon-based Hop Kettle Brewing Company will teach young entrepreneurs the secrets to his success.

Tom Gee will be the guest speaker at Young Enterprise Swindon's second event on August 1, which will be held at his brewery.

Following a successful launch event in June, YESwindon will again help business-minded young people develop connections, learn more about business opportunities in the area and have fun.

YESwindon co-founder and Business West initiative manager Andrew Wells said: "Not only do YESwindon events provide a relaxed environment in which to network, our guest speakers are all inspirational young entrepreneurs from the area.

"Having real life entrepreneurs who have made their business idea a reality is a great way of raising the aspirations of young people and demonstrating the opportunities available to them in Swindon.”

The Grazing Company's director Sophie Thomas will talk about how she helped devise the graze boards and boxes with samples for guests to try along with Hop Kettle brews.
