    The Secrets to their Success: Jamie Cook, Co-Founder Stone & Wood

    The NRF Community is full of legends ...and we'd like to help inspire you with some of our own! 

    The NRF Events Committee will be profiling some of our legends, in a series of gatherings.  We will be sharing their stories of success, their journey and offer a chance to connect with the people behind the brands.

    We are very fortunate that our first gathering in this series will profile the legendary Jamie Cook, Co-Founder of Stone & Wood.  Jamie will be offering his story – the man behind the brand, how he got to where he is now & his journey. 

    Jamie's story is incredibly inspiring...Having held a range of positions at CUB, from General Manager – Marketing Services, General Manager – Matilda Bay Brewing Company and General Manager – Premium Beer, Jamie spent six years as a Director of the strategic marketing and brand communications business, Dig Marketing Group. Together with former Matilda Bay colleagues Brad Rogers and Ross Jurisich, Jamie co-founded Stone & Wood Brewing Company in 2007. Stone & Wood is today Australia’s second largest independent craft brewery.  

    This next event will suit all our marketers out there. Come along and hear some of Jamie’s insights such as:

    • How Stone & Wood grew to have a turnover of $60 million and a sales volume of 12 million litres annually … in an insanely competitive marketplace.
    • How little breweries are doing some very cool marketing and get the power of branding, big time.
    • Why community is key to their growth  

    Join us for an afternoon of catching up with local food industry community, inspiration & a few delicious nibblies!
