KPMG Inspire Series will feature guest speakers from across the business spectrum
Issued Tuesday, 27 June, 2017. KPMG today launched a new series of speaker events for business, the KPMG Inspire Series, with entrepreneur Nick Wheeler, Chief Executive of Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts, a leading UK shirts and menswear maker which has taken the traditional bricks and mortar retail model and added a highly successful online presence, quickly becoming one of Europe’s leading online retailers. Nick Wheeler spoke to guests at a lunch in the Royal Hibernian Academy, Ely Place, Dublin.
Olivia Lynch, Partner Private Enterprise at KPMG in Ireland said: “We have created the Inspire Series to share the very best business insights on how to build, grow and transform a business. At KPMG Private Enterprise, we have a long and proud history of working shoulder to shoulder with Irish entrepreneurs, helping them to move through the various stages of the development of their businesses, from the early days to scaling up. We’re always looking for new ways to share insights and that’s what led us to launch the KPMG Inspire Series.”
“We are delighted to be joined today by shirt entrepreneur, Nick Wheeler. Nick has taken a highly conventional business, making and selling high quality shirts and menswear, and has transformed it into a global, business with bricks and mortar stores in Paris, London and New York, and, probably most important in the modern business era, a huge global online presence. Across the traditional and new retail platforms, Nick’s business sells over five million shirts a year. His passion to succeed as an entrepreneur is inspirational and we hope will encourage those enterprises attending today to be similarly motivated and inspired,” added Lynch.
The next event in the series will feature Julie Meyer of Ariadne Capital on fundraising and investment opportunities.
