Great cause for optimism and positivity | Ann Elliott | elliotts agency

I do feel very privileged to be on the council of the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers with some amazing people, all of whom are there working for the good of the industry.

The Deliveroo Dilemma | Ann Elliott | elliotts agency

While chatting in Paris with Paul and Tory Chantler from FrogPubs (I came here with HGEM’s Sally Whelan to look at the eating out scene, I must admit the food hall at Galerie Lafayette has been the highlight so far), one topic of conversation was Deliveroo.

Female Role Models

Recently, I had the great pleasure of hosting the bi-annual Elliotts lunch for leading women in the sector. It sounds a bit corny to say it was a real privilege but it was – with nearly 60 brilliant, inspirational women in the room. Every woman there has played, and is still playing, a key role [...]

Breakfast Is For Everyone

There was a brilliant article in The Times recently about the growth in the eating-out breakfast segment, in which it claimed 2016 has been the ‘year of the breakfast’.

Taking Business Advice From Donald Trump

Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life I found the Donald Trump book ‘Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life’ in the Elliotts library and I thought it was worth another look at some of the advice he offers. There were a few gems in there: “Learn how to manage your [...]

Questions I have been asked lately, by Ann Elliott

Friday Opinion - Propel Newsletter - 11th March 2016 I often get asked: “What are the latest trends I need to know about and what’s really going on out there?” These are some of the questions from the last week or so. Are millennials really drinking less?  There was some interesting research published this week [...]
