The 7 Figure Bakery in Tottenham | Story of Uncle John's, Changing A Company Culture Ft. Sam Mensah

Read more
id you know the Uk Bakery industry is worth 3.9 BILLION?

Neither did Samuel Mensah and growing up; he assumed he would make bread another way. Neither did he expect that one day he would be firing 80% of his staff to revive his company culture.

In this episode, Sam breakdowns the journey of growing his parent’s small community bakery, Uncle John’s, into an international company that owns two factories and stocks to over 200 stores in Europe. He goes over the tricks required to broker deals with major supermarkets, Tesco’s and Morrison — and the story of how they outsold Hovis. I also forced Sam to share some gems about surviving as a business in the black community and the tough decisions involved in innovating a company culture.

I am proud of this episode as a testament to the multiple opportunities available to grow a 7 figure business if you focus on an industry and apply your hustle.

Uncle John's Top 30 Horror Pics

Read more

Uncle John is a history professor who specializes in Western European history. Particularly 16th century England and France. But his true knowledge lies in film... horror film. John brought his top 30 horror movies and we count them down. Then we take a break to watch a very disturbing French film called "Irresversible" (don't watch) and then recap what we saw.

Juliet Hopkins: A life in Child Psychotherapy- Uncle John Bowlby, Attachment Theory & Psychoanalysis

Read more

MINDinMIND INTERVIEW www.mindinmind.org.uk

Juliet Hopkins has had a significant impact on child psychotherapy.  As the niece of John Bowlby, she robustly defends his place in the field of psychoanalysis, shares her concept of ‘Too Good Mothering’ and how she has integrated attachment theory and research on intergenerational trauma. She recalls how Enid Balint lifted her from depression and how penis envy and hearing about penis envy was a completely normal part of everyday life!

Juliet Hopkins was a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Tavistock Clinic and the London Child Guidance Training Centre from 1960-2000 and has had a significant impact on child psychotherapy.  As the niece of John Bowlby, it is perhaps no surprise that she has been a keen advocate of attachment theory, but she has been credited with doing much in her own right to develop child psychoanalytic theory by integrating attachment theory and research on intergenerational trauma and its impact on infant mental health.

Interview by Jane O'Rourke


·  Juliet shares her regret about feeling embarrassed about her uncle being John Bowlby when she was a trainee, and the painful rejection of him by colleagues at the Tavistock Clinic who considered his ideas ‘ridiculous’. She says despite his theories being widely embraced by child clinicians throughout the world, he is still not properly honoured at the Tavistock or by psychoanalytic organisations.

·  How her analyst Enid Balint lifted her from depression

·  Juliet’s recall of a time in history is fascinating. It was when some children like her grew up with parents who were steeped in psychoanalysis (her mother's analyst was Joan Riviere) 

·  Juliet's difficulties with her own parents and children inspired her to develop important ideas about parenting in psychotherapy and led to the illuminating theory of ‘Too Good Mothering,’ which she shares here

Her colleague Dilys Daws says, ‘Juliet has widened our view of what child psychotherapy can encompass and shows that diametrically differing approaches can co-exist and nourish each other’.

Another colleague, Ann Horne, says ‘Juliet has for over 50 years quietly questioned theory, subjected it to scrutiny and declared where it is found wanting, in the manner of her main influences John Bowlby and DW Winnicott.  An advocate of the importance of environment and family, she challenged practice that focussed exclusively on the internal world of the child and importantly championed her uncle John Bowlby's work on attachment. Always aware of the power of psychoanalytic insights, she has used these to inform change in the care and understanding of children, from medical students in Hong Kong in the late 60’s to establishing the original course in Infant Mental Health at the Tavistock and founding with colleagues the UK branch of Association of Infant Mental Health.  That she communicates with intelligence, elegance and clarity has been vital in all of this.  More people should read and listen to her: I am so glad that MindinMind has enabled it’.

Juliet also undertook family therapy training as well as training in child and adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy. She was a founder member of the independent child psychotherapy training run by the British Association of Psychotherapists.  She has retired from private practice as a psychotherapist for adults and children but remains an Honoured Member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists.

#76 Samuel Mensah, MD at Uncle John’s Bakery, on Family Legacy

Read more

Over the past 25 years, Uncle John’s Bakery has remained a staple household name within the Afro-Caribbean Community, with a community expanding across the UK as well as around the world. Founded by his parents, today’s guest is Samuel Mensah, the MD of the company. From the very start, the ethos of the business is the Ghanian saying “Obeyeyie”, which means “things will get better”. And amidst the pandemic, this ethos has been their North Star.

Uncle John’s Bakery retails in major supermarkets such as Morrisons, and has collaborated with brands including Dropbox, Ghana Party In The Park, Unicorn Theatre and many more. They have also received positive recognition from major institutions such as GUBA, 10 Downing Street, British Baker and Time Out magazines. 

I’m excited to have Samuel on the show to learn more about running a family business. In this conversation we explore being digitally accessible, the future of the high street, his visit to 10 Downing Street – and their signature sweet bread.
