Interviewed by Melanie Wotherspoon, Business development director

For our inaugural founder series event focusing on successes and experiences of business founders, we were joined by Emma Bridgewater. Three decades ago, designer Emma Bridgewater tapped into English pottery traditions and made them her own. Now a celebrated taste-maker in the UK, her Stoke-on-Trent factory can barely keep up with demand. The company manufactures 1.3 million pieces of pottery each year, generating a £17 million annual turnover, and has reached double-digit growth year on year.
