Launching … Entrepreneurship!

Launching … Entrepreneurship!

Starting your own business is something that most dream of but rarely Go Do. Launching our Scottish company, Tie Club, 5 years ago started with a lot of excitement as well as fear. Scotland has always offered chances for innovation but it is the first time that supporting new businesses is embodied within a well organised programme that actually offers the help that a business needs during its baby steps.

Our business has grown immensely during the past year through the support of Entrepreneurial Spark but the incredible journey has just begun. Moving offices at the brand new wing i

Expanding Business - New Product in Line- University of Edinburgh Equestrian Club.

It is always great when a business expands to uncharted territories. But it is even better when it is the customer that inspires you to try new things.

Christmas Special : The Christmas Office Party

Year in and year out the Christmas office party can be the one thing an employee (or employer, because they are human too) might dread for all kinds of different reasons.

But fear not anymore fellow Tie Clubbers, because last Friday we tested and approved the best recipe for a successful Christmas party, here at the Entrepreneurial Spark premises.

We are all familiar more or less with the dos and don't of situations that involve colleagues, bosses and alcohol.

Why do they ask you to wear a tie to the office?

Why do they ask you to wear a tie to the office?

It makes you act like a professional, if anything less, it makes you look like one. NO. We’re not saying that putting on a tie has nothing to do with your looks or those who love pairing their extravagantly customized ties to pull off fashionably minimalist-yet- attractive looks with their office dress code should stop doing that. There’s more to wearing a tie than your tie playing a part to complete your professional attire.

Just so that we don’t come across as anti-tie-make-

Men, be alert! Let’s teach you a thing or two about wearing a tie.

Ties in most part of the world are an integral part of uniforms. Wearing a neck tie or a customized bow tie, a part of dress code, has lot more than just being a tradition. They give you an identity. Ties, in old times, conveyed your gentlemanliness to the people you spoke to. Nowadays, ties are looked at as more of an accessory to be worn with a suit. Mind you, organizations have more to do with a tie as part of their uniform, they express authority, power, control and professionalism. So, if you aren’t wearing your tie properly or wearing a tie that
