The Internet and online resources such as Fresh Business Thinking provide business owners and entrepreneurs with information, ideas and advice but there is still a strong demand for face-to-face interaction.

Next week,as well as our own Fresh Business Thinking LIVE!, taking place on Wednesday 8th September at Old Billingsgate in the heart of the City of London, there are two other significant events aimed at entrepreneurs and business owners.

There is The MADE festival in Sheffield which will see a host of entrepreneur inspired events. From a special TEDx conference to 'How to Make a Million Before Lunch', the one-woman show from Rachel Bridge, enterprise editor of The Sunday Times.

MADE will be hosted in Sheffield between 8 and 11 September 2010 and will be headlined by former TV Dragon Doug Richard's with a talk from Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, about his entrepreneurial business The Black Farmer.

Sage World 2010 takes place at the International Centre Telford on the 8th & 9th of September and features a host of seminars, product demos and networking opportunities

Fresh Business Thinking LIVE, the one-day event for entrepreneurs is taking place next week on 8th September. Aimed at owners, directors and entrepreneurs from the UK’s small-to-medium business community the demand for tickets has been massive and the event has already reached capacity.

There is now a waiting list for delegate tickets — however we recommend that unless you have already registered it is unlikely that you will be able to attend.

If you are registered to attend then we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday
