The Elite Business event took place this month in London’s east end at the heart of Tech City. True to their word the event was jam-packed with professional speakers, thought-leaders and industry experts who addressed the barriers to growth for fast track start-ups and high-growth SMEs.
There were talks from the entrepreneurs such as Ultimo boss Michelle Mone, Mobo Founder Kanya King and the man who slayed four dragons, Levi Roots, founder of the Reggae Reggae brand.
The two-day event also featured some lesser known entrepreneurs, though specialist in their field such as Author, Wealth Manager and Speaker Derek Mills who gave a inspiring talk at the end of day two about setting standards. I’d like to thank Derek for my signed copy of his book 10 Second Philosophy which I cannot put down at the moment.
There were many others who were keen to share their tips and knowledge about everything to do with setting-up or running your own business, including Simon Harmer Director of Marmalade on Toast. Simon emphasised the importance branding, and the mistake everyone makes in thinking branding is your company logo, when in actual fact, you are your brand. Thanks for my Ipad Mini Simon, it fits nicely into my handbag.
It was a great all round event and I look forward to next year.
