Prickly Thistle

Welcome to The Executive Podcast, the show where we share the behind-the-scenes of successful enterprises, offering valuable insights, tips, and the unique perspectives in the north of Scotland. I’m Rachel Smart and my guest today is

Clare Campbell the founder of prickly Thistle. 

Clare changed lanes in life after a successful career in accountancy, she decided to launch prickly thistle which she describes as a bad ass bespoke tartan clothing brand with sustainability at the heart. She recently opened Rebel Row in Inverness to showcase all her designs and products in one place. She's an activist is social change and is about doing business with purpose - with prickly thistle being registered as a b-corp business - we speak to her about unplugging from social media, using her business to scale change rather than profit and how she’s been able to stick to her morals in an ever-growing business landscape.
