Founders of Candy Kittens to visit University as part of Personal Best: My Story series

Alumnus Ed Williams and Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing will be visiting the University later this month to discuss their journey to creating their confectionary business, Candy Kittens.

The pair co-founded the business in 2012 after identifying a gap in the market, and will be sharing their story on how they built the brand, what goals they set for the business and how their entrepreneurial spirits led them to success.

Students will be able to ask Ed and Jamie questions at the event, which takes place on Thursday 21 February from 6:30pm, and will also hear more from Ed in context of his Loughborough journey.

This presentation is the second in the Personal Best: My Story series and follows on from an inspiring talk from two alumni who are part of the Red Arrows squad.

The event will take place in the Edward Herbert Building/ Places for the talk are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To book your place, click here.

Personal Best is a bespoke development programme that has been specifically designed for Loughborough University students.

The initiative offers the opportunity for students to reflect on their skills and abilities, set goals for themselves and work towards these through a range of activities and resources.

The programme covers academic, professional and personal development, such as study and workplace skills as well as mental and physical wellbeing. Find out more on the dedicated webpages.
