This year there are some great speakers

Tony Bloom

The man behind the phenomenal success story of the Albion FC and Amex Stadium.

Simon Woodroffe OBE
Founder, YO! Sushi

What do you do when you’ve been a roadie, a stage designer, a TV executive, you’re nearing 40, running out of money, are unemployable and have a family to support? You start a conveyor belt sushi bar. That’s what Simon did. Find out what tricks he learned along the way, and how he mastered the business tightrope whilst launching YO! Sushi, YO! Below, YO! to Go, YOTEL, and YO! Home… all with a view to one day eclipsing Virgin and Easy.

Jules White
TEDx Speaker | Author | Dragon Slayer

Jules White reveals stories and busts some myths about sales. Having had 32 years selling for a living and now an International sales coach, Jules will help you to understand that in actual fact we can all sell. Life skills are sales skills – and it’s all about having a human conversation.

Graham Moore
Founder, Humanutopia

Discover the impact of empowering young people to make positive changes in their lives and the world. Graham’s colorful childhood is translated into a powerful story and is relevant to anyone working in dysfunctional communities.

The inspirational story of his own experiences and continued work shows how to empower even the hardest to reach youths.

Penina Shepherd
Founder, Acumen Business Law

To get ‘a foot in the door’ we need to truly believe there is a door, we need to really want to get through the door and, most importantly, we need to shift our backside and get to that door! In this no-nonsense talk, Penina will share her passion for ‘doing’ and ‘getting on with it’. She will relate to a fascinating story which should be told more often and will reflect on her own experience too.
