Trudgian started the online fishmonger in 2007 from a Portakabin in Bodmin. Now a flourishing company supplying businesses both locally and across the country, as well as direct to its ever-growing online customer base, Fish for Thought is a real success story.

He inspired the audience with his business journey, sharing his lessons learnt and choices made. He challenged Cornish business leaders and graduates to choose their own path and not be afraid of taking risks.

The networking event was the latest in Unlocking Potential’s (UP) Connect Days. Graduates and businesses who were unable to attend yesterday can find out about the next event by calling 0845 600 3660 or visiting the website
