Today’s interview is with Nick Barlow, who is in charge of Creative and Media for Small Batch Coffee – a Brighton based (and local to me) ‘Boutique Coffee Roaster’ who sell coffee online (retail and wholesale) and also operate 7 coffee shops/vans around Brighton, Sussex. Nick joins me today to talk about the Small Batch Coffee, their story, social media and how they have used it to serve their customers, solve their problems and build better relationships with them.
This interview follows on from my recent interview: Neuroscience, customer service and why we should always deliver and never over-promise – Interview with Dr. Jack Lewis – and is number one-hundred and seven in the series of interviews with authors and business leaders that are doing great things, helping businesses innovate, become more social and deliver better service.
Here are the highlights of my interview with Nick:
Nick graduated with a degree in Contemporary History from the University of Sussex in 2004. Following that he spent 3 years with Life Water working in Design and Social Media before joining Small Batch Coffee. He describes his role on LinkedIn as Designer, head of marketing & social media…and occasional barista.
