Henry Patterson

Henry started his official business journey at the age of nine when he launched children’s brand Not Before Tea. This was based on story book he had written entitled The Adventures of Sherb and Pip. All the characters in the book were bought to life through products such as bags, wash bags and soft toys. Today the products are sold internationally and Henry has just secured substantial investment to grow the brand further. His path has not been an easy one and over the years has battled a stammer and being bullied - coming out the other side so much stronger, with a good story to share.

The Power of Simple

Since the age of 9 Henry (now 15) has sat through many a marketing and product development meeting. He leaves each meeting always confused on why adults make everything so complicated. With brands such as KonMari (Marie Kondo) who has made millions out of something as simple as folding, Henry will explore the power of ‘simple’.
