Podcast: Tom O’Toole, shares his business journey

In this interview, Beechworth Bakery founder, Tom O’Toole, shares his very personal business journey with Tim Reid.


Tom O’Toole is the larger than life founder of the famous Beechworth Bakery chain. Not only is he the creator of some of the finest sweet and savory treats going around, he is also an incredibly inspiring small business owner who tells it like it is. He also happens to be one of Australia’s most motivational speakers. Not bad for a bloke who grew up in extreme poverty.

In this Small Business Big Marketing podcast, Tom shares much more than how he goes about marketing the bakery. Tim Reid goes deep inside his personal journey as Tom candidly reveals how creating one of Australia’s most iconic bakeries hasn’t all been smooth sailing.

The Small Business, Big Marketing podcasts are characterised by plenty of chit chat from Tim who’ll typically kick off with nuggets of advice and tell shaggy dog stories before diving in to the episode’s topic.
