Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! has officially opened its doors for a day packed full of inspiration and advice for entrepreneurs and small business owners alike.

As Global Entrepreneurship Week Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! will, through a series of seminars and workshops with a selection of the country's leading entrepreneurs, arm business owners with the knowledge they need to enhance their businesses.

The event, taking place at Old Billingsgate, comes at a time when the small to medium sized enterprise (SME) world is witnessing a renewed boost in confidence.

David Cameron has recently announced a raft of investment initiatives to support and nurture SMEs in a bid to help boost growth and rebalance the economy. And it is no secret that the government sees entrepreneurship as the way out of the current economic mire.

With that in mind Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! has assembled a top class selection of speakers, including Lara Morgan, Penny Power, Joe Cohen, Lawrence Jones and Lee McQueen, to share a wealth of knowledge and first had experience of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur.

Further to that there will be a host of workshops and seminars that will cover topics such as finance, sales, employment law, internet marketing, presentation skills, technology, and direct mail, geared at enabling you to further your own business.

Now in its fourth year Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! has become a mainstay on the SME calendar, and has received high praise for past events, with 2011's event expected to be no exception.

"Fresh Business Thinking LIVE! 2010 was a fantastic forum to connect with our target audience - ambitious owner managers. The event surpassed our expectations both in terms of the quality and quantity of contacts we made, and we look forward to participating again in future," said Gerard Burke, Your Business Your Future.
