OUR SPEAKERS

Our speakers have all been involved in building businesses like you have; they have the successes and battle scars to prove it!

From launching their own companies and exiting at the right time, to advising start-ups and scale-ups on strategy, culture and maximising employee performance, our specialists have deep experience and expertise in helping businesses transform to succeed.

During a series of intimate speaker sessions and workshops, they will guide you through a detailed, integrated framework for growth. 


Outside of these, spend time with our growth experts in groups or 1:1 to discuss specific issues, clarify key takeaways and help you turn that framework into an actionable change plan for your business, no matter what its level of maturity.
