Digital Business Models

Digital Business Models - Friday 23rd 11-12 pm

Tech, innovation and digital is a business necessity today, but the word 'digital’ to many still means a website, some social posts and e-commerce.text-image

'Digital' is not 'tech'. It is a whole new way of doing business and a huge opportunity both for progressive old economy adopters as well as newer digital natives.

Sandeep supports businesses through digitalisation, re-design of business models and use of strategic innovation to compete with the new normal, and he’s here to share his wisdom with you. If you run an SME and are looking to digitally innovate and grow your business, this is a must attend event for you.

Agency, Earthquake, PTSD

Agency, earthquake, PTSD, coach - Friday 23rd 10-10:45 am

This is my story, from agency owner to coach, trusted by Google and Forbes to deliver coaching programmes and talks across the world. My journey involves exiting a business, surviving an earthquake with a young family, PTSD, depression and anxiety, all whilst growing a coaching practice, winning clients, delivering work and getting on stage. 

It's a story about the lows and the highs, therapy and pills. About survival, escape and campfires and snakes. It's about endorphins, exercise and diet. Finally, it's about confidence, imposter syndrome and self-belief. It's about bouncing back.

It's a story for anyone who lacks the belief they can't achieve their goals, and what to do about it.

Let’s get growing: Finding funding during a global crisis - Wednesday 21st 3-4pm

From adversity comes opportunity, and if there is one thing that the UK is not lacking, it’s an abundance of innovative, disruptive firms ready to grab opportunity by the horns – from scale-ups and start-ups to businesses that have adapted quickly during Covid-19 and find themselves in a position to acquire and expand. If you know where to look, you can find plenty of exciting SMEs.

The challenge is that these SMEs do not always know where to look themselves, especially when it comes to the funding options that can fuel their growth.

We are joined by three industry experts – a lender, an advisor and a business leader – to get their unique knowledge and insights into the options that are available for growing businesses, whom they need to speak to and how business owners can make the most of new “recovery” loan products to kickstart their next phase of growth.
