Fraser Doherty started his incredible business career at the age of just fourteen. After being taught how to make jam in his Grandmother‘s kitchen in Scotland, he came up with a way of making jam 100% from fruit. At sixteen, he presented his brand, SuperJam, to Waitrose and went on to become the youngest ever supplier to a major supermarket.
SuperJam has since grown into a company that has sold many millions of jars through thousands of supermarkets around the world. As well as being a commercial success, the business has invested in successful charitable projects - running hundreds of free tea parties for the elderly in Europe, Korea and Australia and setting up community beehives in the UK and Korea.
Fraser has been commended by the Prime Minister at Downing Street, by HRH Prince Charles and was recently awarded a medal (MBE) for services to business by The Queen. He has shared his incredible story at more than 500+ conferences in 27 countries around the world, as well as in his best-selling books SuperBusiness - published in UK, US, Australia, Korea and Japan and The SuperJam Cookbook. His latest book '48 Hour Startup (How to Launch a Business in a Weekend)' was published in 2016.
He is also the co-founder of Beer52; the world's largest craft beer club and one of Scotland's fastest-growing startups, with more than 150,000 customers, shipping 20,000+ cases of beer a month.
Fraser's speaking topics: Entrepreneurship, Small Business, Innovation, Inventors, CSR, Crowd funding, Marketing/Branding.
