Social Founder Stories
Hubbub's CEO Trewin Restorick on how to start up, scale and let go
Trewin Restorick is the founder of two innovative and high-impact UK charities, Global Action Plan and Hubbub.
Trewin's interview for Social Founder Stories is full of advice and insights on how to create and scale, not one, but two successful social enterprises. Trewin talks about what he calls “founder spirit” - his love of starting up and jeopardy. He shares insights into the key stages he's been through to create both financial sustainability and social impact, from starting up to letting go, and then starting again, to create and grow first Global Action Plan and now Hubbub.
Trewin covers a range of areas from boards and trustees, partnerships with major corporates, the importance of values and credibility, business plans (he doesn’t like them!), charities and trading companies, creative campaigns and legacy.
And along the way, there's talk of frogs and lily pads, plastic fishing and fun, teams and transformation. Enjoy listening to this creative, entrepreneurial and values-driven social founder.
