Dress codeBusiness Attire

Continuing our highly successful Fortune Favours the Brave theme, join us at our powerful conference designed to inspire and spearhead fresh drive for growth in the coming year.
Our autumn business conference provides an outstanding opportunity to hear from inspirational people doing great business in the form of our special guest speakers.
Each leads a dynamic organisation in highly competitive and challenging sectors.
Moreover, it’s the impact of connection within a captivating atmosphere Forum members, guests and partners value, which makes them return year after year. We continue to address the issues that concern our members and introduce them to the people who will inspire them to drive their businesses forward.
Our conference isn’t just about the speakers; it’s also about being inspired by the people in the room, making the ‘right connection at the right time’ and being stimulated from connections within your peer group.
Fortune Favours the Brave is very much about getting under the skin of those who take chances and finding out what happens when you do – because it’s only when you step out of your comfort zone or are faced with a seemingly ‘make or break’ moment that you’re really tested.
We have a spectacular speaker line up – all have their own experiences of defying the odds and grasping the opportunities that were there for the taking, but needed a certain amount of bravery to follow through.
Take a day out of your business, in order to work on your business. Learn from those around you, soak up the wisdom of others and let us know what you’ll be taking back into your businesses and the impact that it makes after attending this November.

Philip Meeson is chairman and chief executive of Dart Group PLC; chief executive of the aviation business; and executive chairman of the distribution business.
In April 1983, his private Company purchased the Channel Express Group which, at that time, distributed Channel Islands grown flowers to wholesale markets throughout the UK and freight from the UK into the Channel Islands. From that original business, he developed the Group’s two business sectors – Aviation and Distribution.
Having decided that the Company needed wider access to funding in order to accelerate its growth, Channel Express Group PLC was floated on the USM in 1988. In 1991 it changed its name to Dart Group PLC and moved to a full listing on the London Stock Exchange before moving to AIM in 2005.
