Company You Keep

If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a whole damn network to raise a business. Armed with practical steps, this session will help you find, and get the most out of, new networks and mentors.

Pitch Perfect

Media attention is not only great for raising awareness for your idea but it's great for your bottom line. This is an insider's guide to industry etiquette - uncover the secret of a successful pitch and how to get the right sort of coverage.

Building Blocks

It's one thing to kick off an idea, but how do you make it sustainable? We crack the code and look at how to put innovative thinking into practice, the best ways to build a team and how to really create that 'x' factor.

Numbers Game

Want to play the game? Here’s your rulebook. Discover how to get buy in and funding from those around you, learn the best way to pitch your idea, navigate the tricky world of salaries and hear how to do it all if external funding just isn’t for you.

Rookie Errors

Learning from your mistakes is good, but learning from other people’s mistakes – so you don’t have to make them – is even better. Hear first-hand accounts of falls and failures that shaped the early days of several businesses.

Adding Spark

When being creative is part and parcel of your daily to-do list, how do you keep your work fresh? This session will explore the key to creativity, as well as the ins-and-outs of collaborations, while giving you an injection of inspiration.
