This is a Grind Shanghai event
Branding and Design Mentality
After spending two years in Shanghai, Grant found himself overwhelmed missing the natural beauty of his home. From this desire sprouted the concept for naked Retreats, which was launched in 2007. Grant has since applied the naked concept and his team's branding and design expertise to an array of new businesses, ranging from naked Castle and naked Bite to our host and Shanghai's newest co-working space naked Hub.
Grant’s vision is to create sanctuaries that are in harmony with the environment, where people can appreciate the simple way of nature and embrace the naked Lifestyle. Grant’s tireless efforts in promoting eco-tourism in the rural areas has created jobs and pride for the local community. He received an environmental award from the Huzhou Government in 2008, and naked Stables received numerous design and sustainability awards internationally since opening in 2011.
Before coming to China in 2005, Grant worked in England and South Africa with more than 10 years’ business ownership experience. With a background in IT, he launched e-Bites Limited in 2000. Operating nationally, e-Bites was both a publishing company and a call-centre facilitations company with headquarters based in Cape Town. In 2004, Grant received an MBA from University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business. Upon graduation, he decided to come to China, as he saw China is where business opportunities lie.
