Fraser Doherty MBE
After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)
Fraser Doherty MBE has spoken at over 500 speeches in 27 countries around the world! He is still often affectionately referred to as Jam Boy. He is founder & CEO of SuperJam and he is also co-founder of Beer52, the world's largest craft beer club.
It was announced in June 2014 that Fraser had been included in the Queen's birthday honours and awarded an MBE.
Regarded as "One of the UK's leading motivational speakers", Fraser Doherty started his incredible business career at the age of just fourteen. After being taught how to make jam in his Grandmother's kitchen in Scotland, he came up with a way of making jam 100% from fruit. At sixteen, he presented his brand, SuperJam, to Waitrose and went on to become the youngest ever supplier to a major supermarket.
"My story shows that what can start as a passion, with love and hard work, can grow into something amazing. Something that changes your life."
SuperJam has since grown into a company that has sold many millions of jars through thousands of supermarkets around the world. As well as being a commercial success, the business has invested in successful charitable projects - running hundreds of free tea parties for the elderly in Europe, Korea and Australia and setting up community beehives in the UK and Korea.
SuperJam ended up being exhibited in the National Museum of Scotland as an 'Iconic Scottish Brand'. He has won over 20 innovation awards and has been the subject of several TV documentaries.
His Beer52 company is one of Scotland's fastest-growing startup companies with more than 200,000 customers, shipping 50,000 plus cases of beer a month and producing the UK's No. 1 craft beer magazine, Ferment.
