About the speaker
From a broken back to a leading beard care brand.
In 2011, rehabilitation led John to study sports massage therapy. He started making massage oils, then hair oil, then beard oil. Since then, Braw Beard has gained fans worldwide whilst supporting athletes, musicians and personalities. It’s been a rollercoaster story so far, he experienced the lowest point, then one of the highest points of his life within 24hrs.
In this talk, John will take us through the Braw Beard journey so far. He will explain why maintaining tradition has always been at the core of his brand.

BRINGING BROSS BAGELS TO EDINBURGH. Instead of complaining about the lack of bagels this country has to offer – founder Larah Bross decided to do something about it. Working closely with local initiative Breadshare, Bross Bagels aims to bring authentic bagels to Edinburgh and beyond. Our rustic bagels are available to buy by the dozen or filled with some NY deli inspired fillings from our shop in Portobello and Leith.
