As well as talking about his company’s growing success – which now includes a range of funky products as well as his parody rap video, Jim discussed his future plans, including shooting another music video to market the 3 iced coffee drinks.  The first music video, ‘Keep Your Chin Up,’ which can be seen on the website and YouTube channel, echoes the Jimmy’s Iced Coffee ethos which is also used to brand a growing line of merchandise with the hashtag #KYCU.

Having grown tired of the cold English winters, Jim and his partner, Sophie, upped sticks to travel around Australia for a year, and it was here they developed their penchant for the Australian craze of iced coffee. The iced coffee is now sold in supermarkets and convenience stores across the country, and Jim continues to grow and develop the brand with clever marketing and innovative products based around the eye-catching branding.

Engage Executive Jobs recruitment director, Sally Bennett, said: “We are thrilled to have Jim Cregan speaking about his experience of growing a brand like Jimmy’s Iced Coffee and all that has involved – from initial idea to the product we now see on supermarket shelves.  The Jimmy’s Iced Coffee brand is particularly pertinent to us as a business community as Jim is a local chap who has created and marketed a national brand with great success.”

The Engage Executive Jobs Directors’ Lunch will be held at the Hilton Hotel, Bournemouth on 15th June.  For more information on this exclusive invite only event, contact 01202 674488 or
