Discover the face behind Rare Breed
Hello and welcome. I’m Eddie Thomas, thanks for stopping by RareBreedRetreats.com, I’m so glad you found us. After many years being a mentor, sounding board and business advisor to countless businesses and individuals I launched Rare Breed to make my knowledge available to those businesses that need it. I still mentor businesses across the world via Skype but what I’m most excited about is our retreats that offer business owners to escape the daily battles and focus their attention on the future of their business.
My background has predominantly been in the media industry. I began in the publishing industry in London as an office junior – an inexperienced 20-year-old full of ambition. My great mentor saw something in this young upstart and groomed me for leadership. The steep learning curve paid off and within 12 years I was CEO. After selling the company I spent three years working with Robert Maxwell before moving to Australia to help establish Text Media.
Following Text, I joined IPMG (Federal Publishing Company) as Acquisitions Director, and through a variety of launches and acquisitions it became a highly successful magazine company.
After the sale of IPMG I joined Edge as CEO in 2007. During a rapidly changing media landscape, we transformed Edge first into one of the leading custom publishers and then on to become a successful, full-service digital content agency.
With some 40 years at the helm of driving business success, nothing delights me more than being able to use my experience to help others. The one thing that has been constant in my career above all else has been a passion for helping ambitious individuals reach their potential.
With Rare Breed Retreats this experience and passion is now available to you. Let me help you figure out exactly what needs to be done to take your business to the next level. Thanks for reading, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks and all the best, Eddie
