Gift of the Year

Please note - the Gift of the Year entry deadline has now been extended to the 11th December.

This week we catch up with the super-busy Kelly Smith, sole proprietor of Billy's Beach Hut. We learn about the businesses origins, it's journey since launch, Billy's Beach Bus, the addition of the Isla Jewellery range that won the Fashion Accessory award in both 2019 and 2020 and much, much more about this fantastic enterprise.

 Welcome to the Product-Cast, aka the Prod-Cast, brought to you by Gift of the Year and supported by the Giftware Association. The podcast shines a spotlight on the UK’s thriving gift industry, providing insight into all aspects of the creative and sales process, from concept to retail and everything in between.

Each week you will meet a new key player from retail or supply and learn about their role within their business, their insights on the industry and, of course, to talk about their entry or previous winner in the Gift of the Year awards.

The Prod-Cast is hosted by Alex Ryan - a marketing consultant and a gift/product marketing expert having spent 6 years as Head of Marketing at Paladone Products Ltd before launching his own agency, Marketing 101.
