Entrepreneurs’ Conference 2017

We have certainly lived up to our name with the incredible success of our 2017 Entrepreneurs’ Conference at the Bournemouth International Centre!

With an electric atmosphere from the start, the much anticipated, business conference exceeded all expectations. Attended by over 200 of the South Coast’s most eminent entrepreneurs and with a lineup of high profile guest speakers, this was a meeting of great minds and an opportunity for South Coast’s brightest to share their knowledge, insights and experience.

Speakers were handpicked by Inspire and included Market Strategist and Economist at The Nat West Markets, Neil Parker; Owner and MD of Rubicon Recruitment Group, Lloyd Banks, Founder of Urban Guild, Mark Cribb, CEO of Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, Martin Edwards, ‘The People Whisperer’, Becki Houlston, Co-Founder of Leaps Innovation, Ross Thornley, award winning author, broadcaster and behaviorist, Jez Rose and MD of Inspire and host of this year’s Entrepreneurs’ Conference, Warren Munson.

“It was an incredible day that words cannot describe. There is no doubt the conference will be back for 2018!”

Guests couldn’t help but be inspired as each speaker took to the stage

Neil Parker shared his expert insights on how the UK economy will be driven by the domestic market and spoke about  the best way businesses can beat inflation; Warren Munson shared the ups and downs of his entrepreneurial journey with his appropriately named talk ‘The Pains of Growth’, Martin Edwards talked about the life cycle of a business and how to prepare for each of the 7 stages, Lloyd Banks described his experience running a recruitment company and how the change in the UK population has affected the way businesses recruit, Becki Houlston gave an inspirational talk encouraging the audience to follow their dreams, Ross Thornely asked the entrepreneurs in the room to think about how they can leverage exponential technologies, Mark Cribbs shared his insightful and funny take on the hospitality industry and Eddie Howe made a surprise guest appearance on screen when he was interviewed about his inspirational journey as manager of AFC Bournemouth.

Jez Rose brought the conference to a close with a high energy talk, and delegates came away from the day’s event knowing they, too, are capable of great things.
