Giles Cooper


Hi, I’m Giles Cooper! I’m an energetic and enthusiastic entrepreneur that loves challenges; constantly striving to better myself and encourage others. I maximise my potential to its fullest every moment of every day and will share my inspiration, aspirations and motivation with you.

Within a 7 year period, I built and lost everything twice. Consequently, I learned valuable lessons that give me a unique insight into building and growing a business and is how I created and developed the entrepreneurial spirit that has led me to where I am today.

If you know you’ve got it in you to succeed but need that extra push and motivation, let’s work together to change your life!

James Morby


I Guess I always knew that I’d work for myself. From a young age I dreamed and believed that I’d better myself.

I worked in the corporate world for a few years before frustration set in and I quit my job and embarked on an entrepreneurial life of excitement, risk and great rewards. I am involved in numerous businesses in the UK and Asia and have recently launched a new business in digital fashion. I love helping start-ups and my main focus is in fashion.

I feel incredibly lucky despite a debilitating illness and I love everyday and the challenges it brings.

My beliefs in business have modified slightly over the years however I still believe first and foremost in investing in what you believe in – whether that’s time or money. Go for it all guns blazing and don’t be scared of failure! Have a plan and stick to it employing people in each position who are better at that job than you and you won’t go far wrong.
