One of the directors of 5.4 has been invited to spend a week with Richard Branson, his family and a small group of entrepreneurs in the British Virgin Islands!
Tamara Trentain has run a successful marketing agency for more than 15 years and is a member of Entrepreneurs Organisation (EO), one of the world’s most influential entrepreneur communities.
This once-in-a-life-time opportunity was made possible through her EO global network.
“After a phone interview with a closes friend of Richard’s, I was confirmed for the trip – I did a dance around the office!” Trentain says.
Trentain will join the elite group on Necker Island to brainstorm ideas about how they can reinvent how they work to help improve the lives of others.
“I am so excited for this opportunity,” Trentain says
“5.4 has a goal to make healthy, clean eating easy and affordable for as many people as possible to help improve their lives. This is perfectly aligned with Richard’s way of thinking.”
“Entrepreneurs need to change their way of thinking and make their businesses ‘a force for good,’ not just a force to make money, if they think like that and empowered all their staff to think like that, they can make a massive difference” – Richard Branson.
In less than six months, 5.4 has tripled in size with recent expansions into New South Wales, Victoria and most parts of Queensland. The business is coming up on its second birthday, and the directors have just finished their five-year plan, with global expansion on the agenda.
The directors of 5.4 are the perfect blend to continue growing the business. Trentain’s business partner and founder of 5.4, Ben Doolan, is a sports and health nutrition expert.
“We both bring different skill sets and experience to the business, while still sharing the same strong business ethics. I believe this is why the business is a success,” Trentain explains.
“It’s not just about having a big game plan. You need to surround yourself with like-minded experts who believe in your values and vision.”
The fact that Trentain will be able to sit down with Richard Branson before too long is certainly surreal, and she believes it will help 5.4 continue to grow.
“He’s a true inspiration,” Trentain says.
“I’m looking forward to having some one-on-one time with Richard discuss how to take 5.4 to the next level. I can expect a blend of fun, action and intense business conversations – I know it is going to be a life-changing week. I am very excited and grateful to have such an amazing opportunity.”
Trentain plans to blog and take video throughout the week so members of the 5.4 community as well as other entrepreneurs can share in her experience.
