After ten years building the Finisterre brand, Ernie has now launched his new business, alongside business partner Gregor Matthews.

Who Buys Your Stuff is a new business model that helps companies decipher their true audience effectively.

The serial entrepreneur will be sharing his past involvement of working with the renowned Cornwall-based cold water surf company.

He’ll also be recounting his more unconventional experiences from launching rockets, debuting on Fox News, and achieving over one million hits on YouTube.

The audience will be treated to a captivating discussion on the varying layers of communication here in Cornwall, and how Capbert is helping businesses to reach a whole new level of interaction.

The awards, taking place at the Falmouth Hotel on Thursday, November 26, recognises the achievements of business people and new enterprises from across Cornwall.

Hub committee member, David Callaghan from TRAC Services, said: “We are delighted that Ernie is joining us for this year’s event. Not only is he an exciting and dynamic presence, but he has been the driving force behind one of Cornwall’s most successful brands.

“Not only will he provide great advice for all in the room, he will be able to offer great inspiration to our nominees and guests, many of whom are just starting their journey in business.”

There are a few remaining tickets for the event, available to purchase online until tomorrow (Nov 19).
