Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Matt Lumb is former CEO and IoD award-winning Director at Tangle Teezer; the world’s first and best-selling detangling hairbrush with twenty brushes sold every minute. Tangle Teezer created a whole new category in hair care and achieved global recognition in a remarkably short space of time. Matt left Tangle Teezer in 2018, and is now the CEO at male makeup brand War Paint, a men's makeup brand, providing premium, quality products to men around the world (a recent Dragons’ Den success story). Their ethos is to break the stigma that makeup is solely for women, making men feel comfortable about wearing makeup. Matt will be sharing all on leading these brands to success.

✓ Disrupting, innovating and scaling with your brand.
✓ Identifying, marketing to and reaching a new customer base for your product or service.
✓ Manufacturing, distributing and exporting your product or service globally.
