Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet other entrepreneurs and professionals followed by an after dinner talk and informal Q&A with Suzanne Noble, founder of Frugl.

Moving from PR to tech, Suzanne has certainly made a big splash with her award winning marketplace, Frugl, the only platform connecting Londoners on a budget with great events and offers.

And until now, Suzanne has bootstrapped, so what better topic to include in her after dinner talk. She will also be sharing her story, including the highs and lows of making your vision a reality - and tips for others planning to bootstrap rather than turn to funding from day one. With a background in PR, she'll give you some tricks and tips for how to achieve media coverage without using an Agency and what worked for her.

Join us for a chance to meet Suzanne informally over dinner to talk about what you’re working on.

The cost includes private dining experience with speaker, 2 course dinner with wine plus highly curated and relevant networking.

P.S. TableCrowd are offering complimentary cab rides home (£15) thanks to their partner, Gett (Get Taxi!) on first download of the app. Details on the night.

Suzanne Noble





Suzanne's core strength is in business development with a background in PR. Over the years she has produced a TV series, written best-selling books and taken small businesses and helped them grow into bigger ones. She has a ridiculously fat address book that covers all sectors – from bankers to bartenders, graphic designers to gardeners, publishers to pole dancers. People often say to her, "Who don't you know?"

In Spring 2014 she transitioned her career from PR to Tech, creating an App for Londoners on a budget called Frugl. Within a short space of time, they had thousands of downloads and great retention with the active Frugl user checking out the app 3x per week. In Summer 2015 they created their marketplace solution on web/mobile and mobile apps, enabling venues with spare capacity to reach their thousands of customers.
