Entrepreneurs Conference 2016
We have certainly lived up to our name with the incredible success of our 2016 Entrepreneurs’ Conference at the Bournemouth International Centre!
With an electric atmosphere from the start, the much anticipated, invite-only business conference exceeded all expectations. Attended by 190 of the South Coast’s most eminent entrepreneurs and with a lineup of high profile guest speakers, this truly was a meeting of great minds and an opportunity for the South Coast’s brightest to share their knowledge, insights and experience.
Our handpicked speakers included National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Alastair Humphreys; Former Royal Marine and Captain of the England Rugby Sevens team, Greg Barden; Global Market Strategist for JP Morgan and TV spokesperson, Alex Dryden; Founder of the MCM Creative Group, Neil Crespin; award-winning businesswoman and co-author of Rainbow Recipes, Barbara Cox; and successful ‘techpreneur’, Matt Hawkins.

Adventurer, Author and Motivational Speaker Alastair Humphreys
Alastair brought the conference to a close with an inspiring talk on life as an adventure, and delegates came away from the day’s event knowing they, too, are capable of great things.
This truly was an exceptional event, attended by exceptional people. The sun shone, ideas flowed and the buzz of positivity was palpable. When asked if they had confidence in the future of their business, the audience gave an overwhelming show of hands… and that says it all.
Some fantastic testimonials from the day include
“I was extremely impressed with this event. It was evidently very useful for networking. The speakers (present company accepted!) were inspiring, and engaging. The event was slick, fun and interesting.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday and was very impressed with what a fantastic job you all did, great mix of informative speakers and a bit of fun.”
“I’ve lost count of the amount of conferences I’ve been to over the years but the Inspire event has most definitely stood out from the rest.”
“Not what I expected. I thought the speakers showed a lot of humanity; very personal stories that I could relate to.”
