Working together to achieve great things is the underlying theme of our autumn conference and the largest entrepreneurial event in the region: Together We Can Take on the World.
Hosted by ex BBC Radio Newcastle presenter Charlie Charlton and held during Global Entrepreneurship Week, our annual conference welcomes over 300 North East business leaders each year for a day of inspiration, learning and making valuable new connections.
It’s a day not to be missed, with guests from our 2021 autumn conference scoring the event 9s and 10s.
“Great event organisation and planning. Excellent and inspiring speakers. Overall a great day.”
“The day was inspirational, positive and a learnt a massive amount. The mixture of speakers was perfect and the other attendees seemed to all enjoy it thoroughly. I left thinking I had attended quite a landmark event and sorry for those who missed out!”
“A great chance for all business owner/entrepreneurs to come together to discuss their journey, aspirations and goals. A brilliant opportunity to discuss what a difference each and everyone one of us can make to impact a difference, not just in the business world but to the world itself!”
Speakers will be announced closer to the date but please check your inbox for regular communications about our upcoming events.
