This episode is the second in our series on entrepreneurial thinking, or channelling the best of start up energy, that can benefit any brand, whatever the size. In our first episode we looked at the benefits of entrepreneurial thinking and identified 6 principles that can benefit any brand. Today, we’re looking at how one brand has used entrepreneurial thinking to scale and get ahead- The Marketing Society’s Brand Of The Year 2023, Lucky Saint. 

Ruth Fittock interviews Lucky Saint’s Marketing Director Kerttu Inkeroinen who lifts the lid on her approach to marketing and how Lucky Saint became the UK’s most loved alcohol-free brand.
