Nicholas Charles Tyrwhitt Wheeler had the idea for Charles Tyrwhitt in 1986, whilst studying Geography at Bristol University. He set out to make the best shirts, using only the finest materials, at great value and with unbeatable service.
After a stint with strategy consultants Bain & Co, Nick went “full-time” in 1990. Financed by a foray into the classic car market, he started with 8 shirts and 8 ties in a single page leaflet.
This led to the opening of a Jermyn Street shop in 1997, a website in 1998 and overseas expansion with a Paris store in 2001 and a New York store on Madison Avenue in 2003. The company continues to grow rapidly in the UK and internationally with sales of £195M IN 2016.
Nick is a non-executive director of The White Company and is married to its founder Chrissie Rucker. They have four children and live in Oxfordshire.
Meet other business professionals in a friendly environment
12:00 The Mikado, our unique networking workshop, opens the afternoon. It offers a mix of one to one discussions, tips, and a chance to ask for help, advice or specific introductions.
12:45 At our pre-lunch Drinks Reception, 30 minutes of open networking offer the chance to meet or catch up with more exceptional people.
13:15 A superb 3 course meal with wine is served. With planned seating and small tables, there are more opportunities for introductions and discussion.
14:30 (appox) We have first-rate speakers who share their knowledge with us. The talks are like mini master classes and you can always take away a little nugget of information.
We meet at the beautiful Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane in London.
With its elegant rooms, delicious food, and central location, it provides the ideal environment for a relaxed meeting.
The service is impecable, and the ambience is relaxed.
We have a terrific variety of speakers from the world around us, and not just business. In the past year alone, we've had someone from a think tank, a foremost economist, an artist, restaurateurs, an aquaculturalist, and a scientist who grows marijuana for a living.
Here is who we have lined up for the coming months:
September 13 - Nick Wheeler, Charles Tyrwhitt & Co
October 11 - Dr Lorand Bartels on WTO
November 8 - Andy Ogden, English Fine Cottons
