SME Summits

Regular SME Summits provide opportunities for in-depth discussions, peer-to-peer networking and one-to-one dialogue with successful entrepreneurs and Santander executives.

These high-profile SME Summits give you unprecedented access to industry leaders, innovators, business experts and likeminded peers, who will share the background to their successes first-hand.

Held across the UK, the events offer practical, actionable advice from other accomplished entrepreneurs and Santander executives, which have included the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, as well as leading entrepreneur and former ‘Dragon’ James Caan and former UK CEO Ana Botin and new Chair of Banco Santander. 

A busy schedule

SME summits typically feature a keynote speech, a series of panels and interviews with businesses and Santander experts, followed by a networking reception. 

Claire Wolstenholme, Head of National Events and Sponsorship at Santander Corporate & Commercial, explains what SMEs can expect to take away from these events.

“It’s an opportunity for businesses to meet their SME heroes. They will hear these successful entrepreneurs – who also mostly started from small businesses – talk about how they battled adversity to grow their businesses.

“Helping companies achieve growth is the main aim of all SME Summits. It’s all about how you can keep your businesses growing and keep ahead of the curve, and helping businesses see where they can get the support to achieve that growth.” 

Entrance to the Summits is by invitation only, and places are limited. To register for an event please contact your Santander Relationship Director in the first instance.
