    Before the Coffee Gets Cold - Toshikazu Kawaguchi

    In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time.

    A Prayer for Owen Meaney - John Irving

    Eleven-year-old Owen Meany, playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire, hits a foul ball and kills his best friend’s mother. Owen doesn’t believe in accidents; he believes he is God’s instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul is both extraordinary and terrifying. 

    Flat Share - Beth O’Leary

    Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

    The Housemaid - Frieda McFadden

    “Welcome to the family,” Nina Winchester says as I shake her elegant, manicured hand. I smile politely, gazing around the marble hallway. Working here is my last chance to start fresh. I can pretend to be whoever I like. But I’ll soon learn that the Winchesters’ secrets are far more dangerous than my own…

    A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J Mass

    When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.

    Black Valley Farm - Sheila Bugler

    She tells everyone her name is Clare Brown. She’s twenty-seven years old. She’s an only child. Her parents were killed in a car crash. She used to have a black cat called Ollie.

    None of these things are true.

    The Perfect Lie - Joe Spain

    Erin Kennedy lives happily with her detective husband in the scenic seaside town of Newport, Long Island. When she answers the door to Danny’s police colleagues one morning, it’s the start of an ordinary day. But behind her, Danny walks to the window of their fourth-floor apartment and jumps to his death. Eighteen months later, Erin is in court, charged with her husband’s murder. She thought he was perfect. She thought their life was perfect.

    But it was all built on the perfect lie.

    Carrie Soto Is Back - Taylor Jenkins Reid

    Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. By the time Carrie retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself watching her record be taken. At thirty-seven years old, Carrie makes the monumental decision to come out of retirement. Even if the sports media says that they never liked the ‘Battle-Axe’ anyway. Even if her body doesn’t move as fast as it did. In spite of it all: Carrie Soto is back, for one epic final season.

  • Importance of Gut Health: Deeply Foods

    Importance of Gut Health: Deeply Foods

    In a world where the importance of gut health has captured the attention of many, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Clara Latham, Co-Founder and Joint MD, Deeply Foods. Clara shares insights into the inspiration behind Deeply, the challenges she has encountered, and her career journey up until this point.

    About Clara:

    Clara’s professional background has seen her build brands which have both developed and lead in their individual categories. 


    She began her career working for healthy snacking brand Bounce, where for 7 years she worked across various sales and marketing roles; her achievements spanned winning and growing the health & specialist retail landscape, to being the brands spokesperson across PR and all major trade events and finally developing and overseeing the export strategy for the brand, in an International Key Account Manager position. Working closely with Bounce MD, they led the smart-snacking category to become the number 1 energy ball, with a Bounce protein ball now sold every 1.9 seconds globally. 


    Clara was subsequently appointed as Head of Sales at Seedlip, during which time she worked closely alongside founder, Ben Branson, to establish and develop the no & low spirits category. As Sales Director, she oversaw a 15-strong commercial department, and supported the business in gaining 7000+ distribution points globally, Seedlip emerged as the undisputed category leader, before being sold in just 4.5 years to alcohol drinks giant Diageo, in a successful majority deal acquisition. 


    Clara was shortly after head-hunted to lead the launch of Delevingne Sisters’ wine brand, Della Vite, in the role of GM. She lead the brands growth successfully through Covid, launching in the UK and US, before parting ways to focus full time on her Founder & MD role for Deeply. 

    Clara Latham

    Co-Founder & Joint MD, Deeply Foods

    Interview with Clara

    Clara, could you please provide a brief introduction about yourself to begin?

    I’m a passionate foodie, born and bred Londoner, an extrovert – and have been working in the world of food & drink start-ups my whole career which now spans sixteen years. I live with my wonderful husband Ben and care deeply about my family & friends.

    Deeply Foods is your own start-up, which is very exciting! When did you launch the company, and could you tell us more about what it specialises in?

    Deeply has been on the market for only a couple of months (we launched in September 2023) but I’ve been working on the development of the business and brand idea for over two years with my fellow founding team members.

    After discovering just how impactful a thriving gut microbiome can be on our overall health, I was inspired to research and find out what it takes to truly build and maintain a healthy gut. The latest science now proves that consuming 30g of fibre per day is key and plays a fundamental role, yet in the UK alone, only 10% of us are managing to reach the daily goal.

    At Deeply, we’re passionate about helping people bridge their fibre gap so we developed a range of powerful prebiotic fibre blends, which can be enjoyed as part of a repeatable morning ritual, a simple morning dose.  Our recipes are proven to directly tackle many of the most common gut health issues (bloating, constipation, digestive discomfort) with a growing number of consumers now feeling the benefits and converting to the power of prebiotics.

    What inspired you to start Deeply Foods? What’s the story behind its inception?

    Having worked at several really interesting and innovative start-up businesses, I love the fast-paced & entrepreneurial environment. Work has never really felt like ‘just a job’ to me, in fact, I’d go as far as to say my career has likely moulded a part of my personality. Along the way, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some fantastic founders and gained a lot of experience and insight into what it takes to build a successful business.

    The key was succeeding in developing a product & brand within a space that truly resonated with me. Given I’m always trying to optimise my health I knew I wanted to launch a brand within the health and wellness space. The positive impact I believe Deeply can have on people’s lives excites me hugely.

    Your business partner is Mark Tanous…how did you meet him and how did you know he was the right person for you to join forces with?

    I met Mark years ago when he was MD at Bounce Energy Balls which was the first company that I ever worked at. For seven years I benefited from his great leadership and mentorship and experienced first-hand many of the business attributes I deem as important for the effective running of a company. We share a lot of the same values when it comes to building brands & teams. We reconnected several years later, both keen to start building something for ourselves from scratch, and the stars aligned for us to co-found a business together. Mark is incredibly hard working, very passionate about health, but most importantly he is someone that I can trust, which is a key attribute when looking for a co-founder.

    Can you share some success stories/milestones Deeply has achieved so far?

    It is still very early days, but I am incredibly proud and happy with the brand we have launched. The recipe, its proven efficiency as well as the name Deeply. I love that it’s packaged in innovative aluminium which is a key differentiator.

    We’re already seeing lots of consumers subscribing to Deeply, which is a key part of our strategy – getting people to invest in a daily gut health routine. We’re also well on our way to better understanding who our target consumer (and shopper) is, which is a fundamentally important thing to define.

    I’m also proud to see us winning significant shelf space in retail within the gut health fixture as the leading and only prebiotic brand. Deeply challenges the status quo within the category and it’s lovely to be able to see that in front of my eyes after years of it living only on a slide or within a strategy deck!

    What are the biggest challenges you’ve faced in getting the company off the ground?

    Lots of the usual start-up mayhem including supply-chain delays that pushed our launch back. We’re also faced with the everyday challenge of choosing what we must prioritise, as we’re currently only a small team. I do however believe that it’s mastering these challenges with the right level of resilience that will help us to differentiate & ultimately win over other companies. The other interesting challenge which is specifically relevant to this space is that no two people’s gut microbes are the same, which means Deeply can benefit people in entirely different ways. It’s a fun puzzle to put together, but it does add some complexity!

    What does success for Deeply look like for you long term?

    We want to be the leading household, premium prebiotic gut health brand, by 2030. We hope to be recognised for being a true leader in the gut health category, that is recognised for the genuine positive impact we have had on people’s lives and their health. I believe that prebiotics and fibre are a fundamental driver of that, and we hope to achieve enough commercial impact to make a notable difference.

    Which has been the role that’s had the most significant impact on your development or career and why?

    A tricky question to answer as every role has been hugely beneficial. Before starting Deeply, I have worked at three fantastic companies.  Seven years at Bounce, over four years at Seedlip and almost three years at Della Vite. At Seedlip I was employee 2, hired as Head of Sales and grew with the company from shortly after launch until post-acquisition to Diageo. The role gave me so much exposure to launching, growing, scaling, and selling a brand and we did it in four and a half years. It was undoubtedly a start-up success story and the experience I gained from being part of the leadership team that created a category, responsible for developing the commercial strategy and growing my team was hugely valuable. People often refer to a step in their career as being a transformational phase, so I would have to say that that was my time at Seedlip.

    Could you share a memorable success story or experience involving a candidate you have hired into one of your teams? What made them stand out or contribute to the company's success?

    There are a range of people I’ve hired along the way and a good segment are from New Chapter. Sam Gummer was a New Chapter candidate, and he was my third hire into the sales team at Seedlip. Before being at Seedlip, he worked as an estate agent selling properties in Knightsbridge. He walked up to his interview, suited and booted, and pitched that he was passionate about moving into the food and drinks industry. He had no real industry-relevant experience, but he was super hungry, incredibly polite, and very ambitious. I felt that although he was a bit of a wild card, he was showing all the right attributes that we looked for and the right kind of behaviour and culture fit, so I went for it and offered him the job.

    As Seedlip began to scale into the national retailer landscape, listing with the likes of Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, Sam was responsible for defending the Speciality channel and through a very focused strategy managed to maintain channel growth, which was against the odds. He executed it fantastically. Now he’s the Sales Director at Longbottom! What an amazing progression story. One of the many Seedlip alumni.

    You mentioned that this time felt different when making hires for Deeply Foods. What were the unique aspects of this experience, and what challenges did you encounter?

    Fundamentally, everything is just put under a microscope when it’s your own business. I care a lot, and it’s just a unique and challenging experience. When you’re hiring at the start of the journey, the first people set the tone for the culture and performance expectations. You need doers, but also expertise which can sometimes be a challenge on start-up budgets. I have always viewed the budget as if it were my own, but in this case, it really is my own, it’s our livelihood. It’s a challenge but it’s exciting!

    What advice would you give to aspiring entrepreneurs or individuals interested in starting their own business?

    Linking to my previous point I think the biggest thing I have learnt so far, is that the highs are higher, and the lows are lower. It is more extreme, and my advice is to have the right support system around you. Whether that’s family, your partner, your friends, or mentors – people that you can bounce ideas off and trust. And also, always try to remember, you are still your own person, and your professional role however personal it can feel at times, shouldn’t define you.  

    Take a look at Deeply Foods below and explore the benefits prebiotics can have on your health.

    Sustainable Beauty is Leading the Way

    It’s Plastic-Free July and plastic pollution is now a major global concern. As we work towards building a more sustainable future and prioritise our oceans, wildlife, and ecosystems, it is the ideal time to explore eco-friendly alternatives in every aspect of our lives.

    In this blog, we have put together a list of beauty and personal care brands that are leading the movement towards a sustainable future.

    Ethique pioneers the zero-waste beauty industry, renowned for their range of solid beauty bars, including face cleaners and shampoos. These bars are made from compostable and biodegradable materials, effectively eliminating the need for plastic bottles. They go beyond just beauty bars, offering plastic-free lip balms and other beauty products.

    Wild has made waves in the beauty world with their innovative approach to sustainable deodorant. Their solution to the issue of single-use plastic comes in the form of aluminium cases that can be refilled again and again.

    With a wide range of scents, and all-natural formulas, Wild deodorants allow you to buy sustainably, without compromising efficiency or style. Additionally, their convenient recurring payment/delivery plans ensure that you never have to worry about running out of your favourite deodorant.

  • FMCG Attracting Top Talent

    Consultant: Rachael Carver (Head of Consumer FMCG)

    Specialism: Sales, Marketing, Digital and E-com within FMCG and Consumer Goods

    Let’s Chat: How to attract the top talent into your business.

    Are you a hiring manager looking to attract top talent into your team?

    If so, I’m sure you will know by now how competitive the market for talent in FMCG is right now.
    Doing a few things right can significantly increase your chances of hiring your dream candidate.

    My top 4 tips:

    1. Move Quickly!

    Put yourself in the candidate’s shoes…If a process takes too long it’s easy to disengage or start to wonder how committed the company is to you. Candidates are often in multiple processes too, so clients that provide prompt feedback and move quickly between interviews and to offer give themselves the greatest chance of securing the best candidate.

    2. Give the candidates a chance to meet the team

    Moving jobs is a big step and often you’re engaging with candidates that aren’t actively looking for a new role. A candidate once said to me that you’re making one of the biggest decisions of your life based on spending a few hours in total interviewing with your prospective employer. Giving FMCG candidates a chance to meet with the team and getting to know them can increase engagement and make sure that there’s a strong cultural fit on both sides. Often candidates only meet with managers and directors but meeting their peers too is what will help them get to know the company on a greater level and know more about their day to day.

    3. Go in with the right offer!

    You can easily lose candidates with a low ball offer. Would you want to join a company that is undervaluing you from the off? If you consider how hard it is to find a candidate that has the right experience, values and cultural fit then losing them due to under offering is a risky game to play. The cost of not having someone in your team is often greater than the money you’re trying to save.

    4. Don’t assume that everyone wants to work for you

    It’s easy to think that there’s no better opportunity than yours but remember, you know the benefits of working for your company because you’ve lived it! It’s hard to convey that to a potential candidate and it’s an increasing competitive landscape with brands innovating more and offering extra employee perks and flexibility.

    I’ve chosen these four points as they are all easy to implement. They don’t require a brand rehaul or review of your company benefits packages etc.

    It’s 4 simple steps within the recruitment process that can increase your success rate when hiring.

    I hope it helps!

  • The Beneficial Impact of Incentives

    Many believe that money is one of the focal incentives for employees. However according to Glassdoor, data indicates that money isn’t enough to retain or bring in new talent.  

    Ensuring staff feel valued and motivated within their role is crucial for all organisations, no matter what industry. It helps create a positive working environment where individuals respect the company and feel driven to work.

    Here at New Chapter, we strongly believe that the incentives we run add huge value to the company and the people that make it.

    There are many ways to celebrate staff and create a positive place to work, from benefits, to culture, working space and financial rewards. But today we wanted to explore the benefits of incentives (and give you a little look into our recent trip to Hvar!).

    Productivity is essential for an organisations success and there are many ways to drive this within employees. Incentives are a way to provide direction and goals to strive towards that in turn, result in reward. This can help keep employees focused and motivate to achieve them.

    Incentives can come in all shapes and sizes, from a meal out to a holiday away. Whatever it is to demonstrate your value for the hard work and commitment your  employees dedicate to their roles.

    Particularly in a time where home working is far more prevalent. Creating a culture of recognition is extremely important to keep satisfaction and productivity high. Equally it provides a way of keeping people connected.

    Both for smaller companies who are gradually taking on new staff as they grow, and larger companies where employees are spread across teams and cities (or even countries). There is a need to bring everyone together to help develop corporate relationships in the workplace. Providing incentives which allow for this can help create strong bonds at work and an environment where team collaboration will come naturally.

    According to Teamstage, almost half of prospective employees evaluate potential employers by their company culture. 46% of job seekers said culture was one of the deciding factors in the application process. While 88% found it at least relatively important.

    Different types of incentives can help toward breaking barriers, creating a positive company culture and team morale. Furthermore, it builds an element of excitement into individuals’ roles as they work together toward achieving the next incentive.

    Incentives offer a way to provide positive reinforcement each time employees perform in a way in which the company stands for. This can particularly be a great leading example to new employees. It also can help create an understanding across the company of the core values.

    Incentives not only have the ability to motivate staff day to day, but they can develop into something more. They have the potential to increase loyalty and staff retention. The benefits we have discussed can be the very reason your employees chose to stay working for you.

    Showcasing incentive schemes, trips and days out can be a great way to help you attract new talent and demonstrate the culture. It can be a huge selling point to individuals looking for a new role and can help you to stand out to other potential employers.

    What our CEO thinks

    Getting the team together in social settings is a key way that we ensure the NC values and styles of working are passed down. This is even more important now we have a hybrid model and spend less time in our offices. It’s also a great way to build our team as ultimately, we succeed or fail as a team. It’s important to celebrate the successes together.
    Adrian Dalby

    New Chapter - Incentive trip 2022

    Recently we went on our end of year incentive trip to Hvar. Firstly, how do you make it on a New Chapter incentive?

    In contrast to the typical sales incentive trip, here at NC it is based on team performance rather than individual.


    We wanted to help build on our team culture and work on getting as many people on the trip as possible.

    A mini personal target is set for those who have been in the company for less than six months. This gives them the opportunity to also make it onto the trip.   

    Secondly, the fun bit, what we got up to!

    We spent four days exploring the gorgeous island and it couldn’t have been a more perfect place for our incentive trip. We ate great food, experienced the best bars and clubs on (and off) the island, sunbathed, spent the day on our own boat, swam in the sea a lot, drank a lot, laughed A LOT and watched some beautiful sun sets.

    Take a look at some of our memories:

  • Consultant Spotlight

    Hello! I’m Shannon, a Managing consultant at New Chapter.

    I started at New Chapter recruiting within FMCG and Hospitality, focusing on Marketing and Sales roles. As I grew within my career, understanding where my passions lie and what brands I enjoyed recruiting for, I decided to focus in on the Hospitality industry – specifically within Casual Dining and QSR.

    I love trying new foods and keeping an eye on the market to see which brands are doing what!

    As the pandemic took hold, I made the decision to take on the role of Talent Acquisition and Engagement Manager within the start up QSR brand Jollibee Europe, building not only their head office team but also their store level teams. In the year I was there, I doubled their Head Office team across Marketing, Operations, Finance and Supply Chain and helped set up and recruit store level staff for over 10 stores.

    As I spent a year in an internal Talent Acquisition role, I have a unique understanding of how QSR and hospitality businesses work and the types of candidates needed to make them a success. By partnering with me, any brand can find comfort in knowing I have an in-depth understanding of the process and also the key competencies needed from candidates in all sectors in order to make any brand a success.

    Since coming back to New Chapter, I have supported many incredible QSR and Causal Dining brands recruiting roles from Restaurant Manager up to Head of Marketing!

    A Candidate Experience:

    I hadn’t heard of New Chapter before, I only discovered the company once Shannon approached me about a role via LinkedIn.

    I was looking for a new role as my old one was a short term contract based role with no view of becoming permanent. I was looking for a new permanent position which this one offered me.

    It was excellent, Shannon was friendly, attentive, and consistently kept me updated throughout the process.

    Shannon was extremely knowledgeable about not just the role but also the company and industry. She constantly checked in, even after the role was secured. 

    I would highly recommend New Chapter, my experience was great. They were an attentive and professional company.
