BIC006: Interview with Mark Ferguson, MD at Castle Colour Packaging
Business Insights Chat
In this week’s Business Insights Chat, Ian Fitch speaks to Mark Ferguson, managing director of Castle Colour Packaging, a specialist packaging manufacturer in Norwich. They produce packaging for well-known brands including Pritt Stick and Eat Natural, among many others. The business has a focus on being the best it can be, while leading in sustainability and recyclable products. Mark’s insights into lockdown offer a unique perspective in this series, as they were identified as an essential business at the start of the first lockdown. They were able to continue trading, albeit with new safety measures in place for staff, while also having to adapt to new and changing demands for their products. He describes how it was all about feeling safe at work and staying efficient. Mark reflects on their government COVID spot check, and how the resilience and commitment of his team played a huge part in their successes during the last year. He also explains the measures that the company put in place to aid the wellbeing of the team. He discusses the opportunities they identified for Research and Development through their work on sustainability; what his personal weaknesses are, and how he strives to make everyone around him better than him; the benefits of having a non-executive director on your board; how promoting from within is good for business; how running a business is like playing a game of rugby; and how experience outside family businesses is key, citing his time as a young man spent working for McDonald’s as a fantastic opportunity to learn about processes and discipline. Mark’s personal journey, as a man at the top of a key part of the ‘pandemic economy,’ and the success he has had building Castle Colour, make for a fascinating listen. firstname.lastname@example.org www.larking-gowen.co.uk (c) Larking Gowen LLP Show notes: Legacy by James Kerr: What the All Blacks can teach us about the business of life You might like: Impromptu Business Chat – special interview with BBC Radio 4’s Simon Mundie, on how sport is a metaphor for business

How to Dominate Commercial Real Estate w/Mark Ferguson
Real Estate Investor Huddle
Commercial real estate offers investors amazing opportunities. How can we enter commercial real estate and see great results, while discovering the perfect properties for our needs? Is there a set standard for the ‘perfect’ commercial property? In this episode, author and founder of InvestFourMore, Mark Ferguson shares how to cash in with commercial real estate. Takeaways + Tactics When entering the commercial real estate space, it’s a good idea to have a broker assist us to ensure we get the best deals. If our strategy to buy commercial real estate is sending out direct mail, be mindful of who we’re sending it to. Send it directly to the LLC, or property owner. Don’t have a set criteria in place for commercial real estate. Instead, focus on the prospective value of each individual property and market it accordingly.
