Fraser Doherty started his incredible business career at the age of just fourteen. After being taught how to make jam in his Grandmother’s kitchen in Scotland, he came up with a way of making jam 100% from fruit. At sixteen, he presented his brand, SuperJam, to Waitrose and went on to become the youngest ever supplier to a major supermarket.
SuperJam has since grown into a company that has sold many millions of jars through thousands of supermarkets around the world. As well as being a commercial success, the business has invested in successful charitable projects – running hundreds of free tea parties for the elderly and setting up hundreds of community beekeeping projects.
Fraser has been commended by the Prime Minister at Downing Street, by HRH Prince Charles and was recently awarded a medal (MBE) “for services to business” by The Queen. He has shared his incredible story at more than 500+ conferences in 27 countries around the world, as well as in his best-selling books SuperBusiness – published in UK, US, Australia, Korea and Japan, 48 Hour Startup – published in the UK, US, Netherlands and Korea and The SuperJam Cookbook.
He is also the co-founder of Beer52; the world’s largest craft beer club, named by the FT as one of Europe’s fastest-growing startup companies. With almost 200,000 monthly subscribers, the company also produces the world’s No. 1 craft beer magazine, Ferment. Importing beer from a new country each month, they have visited breweries in South Africa, California, Korea (both North and South) and all over Europe.
Fraser supported the RFU Strategic Plan launch event at Twickenham in September 2017 and the service from Raise the Bar and working with Fraser himself was refreshing from the get-go. Fraser’s talk was inspirational and humorous, and for someone who has achieved so much at such a young age was incredibly humble with it, and his story really struck a chord with our workforce – demonstrating how ambition alongside innovation and resilience can really get you to where you want to be. I couldn’t recommend Fraser enough to deliver at a similar session.
“Fraser spoke at our annual team event and it’s safe to say that his session was one of the stand out moments of the day. The keynote he delivered was fitting for the event and the audience were very interested in his background and how much he has achieved. He was happy to stay for lunch and team activities afterwards and also took time to talk with different members of the team. Fraser is an excellent presenter and his story is captivating”
