Pillow Property Partners
The odds might have been stacked against entrepreneur Scott Weir but self-belief helped him on the path to setting up Pillow Property Partners, becoming an Unlocking Ambition Ambassador and winning Small Business Great British Entrepreneur of the Year 2019.
Scott Dickson started his career journey at just 19 years old, spending a year as a B2B sales representative for a start-up commercial water supplier. However he soon realised he didn’t want to work for anyone else; he wanted to be his own boss and have the freedom to make decisions and explore ideas.
Like many entrepreneurs, setting up Talking Medicines was not part of a planned move by CEO and co-founder Jo Halliday, but just a realisation that the corporate world was not for her anymore and that she wanted to do her own thing.
