Breakthrough Live Events

From inspirational discussions to practical action plans, Breakthrough Live offers delegates genuinely useful opportunities to enrich their businesses.

This year we will run two annual events per region, tailored to the requirements of the local area but sharing common themes and structures. Breakthrough’s chosen Growth Champions will be invited to attend, but places will also be available for fast-growing businesses not directly participating in the scheme. If you run a fast-growth business and feel you would benefit from attending an event in your region, now is the time to get in touch. From inspirational discussions to practical action plans, Breakthrough Live offers delegates genuinely useful opportunities to enrich their businesses.

The ‘Breakthrough Live’ initiative will play an important role in the overall Breakthrough programme, providing an opportunity for owners and managers to meet their peers, learn from successful entrepreneurs and participate in interactive sessions covering key business issues.

But Breakthrough Live events represent more than a chance to stop and chat. Organised on a regional basis, they will provide attendees with insight, inspiration and advice, as well as plenty of actionable information. We aim to put together events that will accelerate the progress of our delegates as they drive their companies further up the growth curve.

Started in 2011, Breakthrough Live formed an important component throughout the lifespan of the Breakthrough programme. This year we will run two annual events per region, tailored to the requirements of the local area but sharing common themes and structures. Breakthrough’s chosen Growth Champions will be invited to attend, but places will also be available for fast-growing businesses not directly participating in the scheme.

What to expect from a Breakthrough Live event

All of the Breakthrough Live events will feature keynote speakers, all renowned leaders of industry and enterprise in the UK. In addition, each event will host a number of breakout sessions, which will enable attendees to discuss and address some of the major issues affecting today’s fast-growth companies. We will run sessions on issues relating to trading overseas, financial management, accessing working capital, succession planning and recruitment. Each event will cover around four topics and delegates can pre-register for the sessions they consider most interesting.

Practical help and actionable advice

The key to these sessions is relevance. As a business progresses from start-up to market-leader, challenges will arise when past experience will not suffice. For instance, rapid growth can create major headaches in terms of cashflow and working capital. Similarly, many companies have the potential to sell overseas but lack the knowledge and confidence to embark on a process that takes them out of their domestic comfort zone. Our breakout sessions will help delegates get to grips with these and other issues in a practical way.

Of course, there will be plenty of opportunity for networking. Delegates will be able to talk to both their business peers and potential customers and suppliers. The real value of Breakout Live is in the actionable help each event will offer. We are working hard to create days that will stimulate, inspire and provoke discussion while providing ideas to share, adapt and implement.
