Darren gave up some of his valuable time to deliver a talk at our networking event for young entrepreneurs in Bristol. He spoke about his journey from being a trolley collector at Tesco to becoming the Director of two successful cleaning companies.
The crowd were really energized by Darren's down to earth nature and I think that helped them realized they could achieve the same levels of success as him. Also great to see that, with two other young cleaning company startups in the room, Darren was more than happy to spend some time talking to them to help guide them, rather than see them as competition – truly a humble way to be.
Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Darren for future talks and we hope to welcome him onto our team of mentors in the future.
Darren's talk during the YENA monthly meeting was truly worth attending for! As a young person recently starting a business in the cleaning industry, knowing the how's and why's have really been of benefit to me. Plus, he was very friendly and shared some good tips when I introduced myself to him! Many thanks for your time and expertise Darren!
I can honestly say I found the sessions of great help to my business, and me personally in my desires and goals I had for the future. In fact, it was through Darren’s honest, none - judgmental, advice and his experience on success and failures in in own business that brought me to the place that I am today, in realising that I had to make some significant changes if I were to survive both in business financially and in myself mentally!. I would highly recommend Darren to anyone, who might be just stuck in a rut, struggling to see the way forward, or just needs that 'Kick up the backside' to take their businesses forward!
He's passionate, dedicated, and has an incredible listening ear, as well as a massive amount of passion and energy.
