Hazel Cushion — Publishing: sexy and sensible

Tuesday, 7 February 2017 at The Water Rats.


The talk was all about how to innovate in one of the UK’s oldest industries.

Hazel Cushion is the founder and Managing Director of award-winning publisher Accent Press. She started it in her front bedroom when she was a single mother to 7 year-old triplets.

Hazel founded Accent Press in 2003. This year Hazel launched the new book publishing and marketing services company Octavo, and the bookshop café Octavo’s in Cardiff Bay. Hazel has won numerous business accolades and been invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen in recognition of her contribution to business in Britain. She is on the board of the Independent Publishers Guild.

An excellent summary of the event is given by the blog on Inspired Selection’s website:
