E2 Live, the entrepreneurs expo taking place for Global Entrepreneurship Week on 17th and 18th November, is announcing its formidable line up of speakers across the two days, including Britain’s business leaders, young business talent and inspirational businesswomen.

Speaker highlights at the event, which will take place at Excel, include Rachel Elnaugh, 4Networking MD Brad Burton, Katie Hopkins, Louis Barnett (the 18 year old MD of Chokolit), Dragons Den winner Sharon Wright, and Enternships CEO Rajeeb Dey, winner of the O2 X Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2009.

“E2 Live is not set up to be another sales-driven business exhibition,” says managing director, Vupline Events, Leon Heywood, who is organsing the event. “It’s about education, information and networking opportunities, and the number of really high-calibre speakers reflects this.”

More than 60 big-hitting speakers are organised into four categories: ‘Leading the way’, ‘Generation Inspiration’, ‘Well-heeled’ and ‘Enternships’. The event will be comprised of seminars, networking events and workshops with the aim of inspiring and supporting entrepreneurship in Britain.

E2 Live will be one the largest gatherings of British entrepreneurs, scheduled as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week. With the focus of the show on nurturing talent present and future, many of the speakers have waived their normal fees.

The E2 Live takes place at Excel, London, on 17th and 18th November from 9.30am to 7.30pm. Tickets are £50 each and 50 per cent of the show’s profits will be donated to charities. For more information please visit www.thee2live.com/.
