The first ever Fresh Business Thinking LIVE!, an event for business professionals and entrepreneurs, held on the 8th September at London’s Old Billingsgate has been a huge hit attracting over 1,000 entrepreneurs.
In total, 1,026 business owners and entrepreneurs attended the day, all of whom were impressed with the quality of the expert speakers and exhibitors that were on show.
Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! also worked on a practical level as Lewis Clark from Get Work Experience Limited, who also visited the event explained: “I found two potential suppliers for new office space and I will certainly be implementing a lot of the approaches highlighted in the lectures into my marketing and working practices, so thank you very much!”
Over 40 leading entrepreneurs and business owners spoke throughout the packed Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! programme of lectures, workshops and presentations, commenting on such issues as generating new sales, leaderships techniques, finance, legal and HR solutions, as well as discussing the very latest on and off line marketing strategies.
Speakers included Nick Jenkins, Founder of Moonpig.com, Lara Morgan, Founder and Ex.CEO of Pacific Direct Ltd now Fun-ctionality, Model turned business woman Caprice Bourret and Guy Aston, Business Director of Huthwaite International.
Following on from the success of the event, the Fresh Business Thinking team now have plans to take the show on the road next year, and run a number of similar events across the country.
Nick James, Founder of Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! explains: “The show last week was a huge success. But it wasn’t just the quantity of visitors that impressed me, it was the quality. There were hundreds of business owners and entrepreneurs who attended the day, given how precious their time is it’s really important to deliver valuable content to this audience. All the feedback we’ve had suggests that we’ve done just that, and that there’s a real hunger for a business event like ours.
Nick continues: “Taking this show on the road is an obvious next step for us, reaching those business professionals who can’t get down to London for a day, but are keen to learn the latest business and marketing know-how from those who have made their fortunes implementing them.
We are now busy securing venues and dates for next year events.’
