Breakthrough - Knowledge

SME Summits

You’ll get access to industry leaders, innovators and business experts who’ll be able to offer their experience and expertise, and share the story of their success.

Previously we’ve welcomed speakers such as former Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, as well as leading entrepreneur and former ‘Dragon’ James Caan.

Masterclasses

These one and two-day on-site events give you the unique opportunity  to learn from some of the UK’s market-leading companies and iconic brands, such as Google, Saatchi Masius and Innocent Drinks. Through a series of talks and seminars, they’ll share their experiences of doing business further along the growth path. 

To be eligible we are looking for highly ambitious businesses who’ve been trading for a minimum of two years and have plans to increase their customer base, employ more people or expand to new markets in the next 12 months.

Workshops

Our regional and sector growth workshops can provide key skills essential for business growth. A range of classroom-based, half-day workshops are available with access to a specialist speaker, focusing on sales, leadership, international expansion, specialist HR and employment law.

Women in Business

Designed specifically for female entrepreneurs, our networking, education, mentoring and events programmes give you the opportunity to improve your leadership and management skills while learning from successful female entrepreneurs.
