A group of members from For Entrepreneurs Only (FEO) have developed an exciting new series of breakout sessions for The Business Day at Bridlington Spa on 7 June, appealing to anyone who wants to know more about the risks and rewards of running a private sector business or, to gain new ideas on how to grow and improve. Their theme for 2019 – Who Wants to Be an Entrepreneur?
Now in its third year, The Business Day gets bigger and better, selling out tickets to the Hull and East Riding business community, drawing together to celebrate, learn and network.
Driven by a group of like-minded entrepreneurs, FEO has gathered a special team to work together to design and deliver sessions to explore what it’s like to be an entrepreneur, warts and all. In true FEO style, they will share real life stories, offer inspiration and make it a rewarding day for delegates, outside of a normal 9 to 5 business day.
Four sessions throughout the day include: Peer Pressure headed up by FEO members Angela Oldroyd from The Promotion Company and Christina Colmer-McHugh from Moodbeam. Focusing on personal insights from some of the area’s leading entrepreneurs, this session will illustrate that positive peer pressure can be invaluable to an ambitious entrepreneur’s mindset and works in the same way that a personal trainer can help to maintain physical health and fitness.
Co-founders of FEO; David Hall and Paul Sewell have helped release local entrepreneurial talent with dramatic effect and their session; Unleashing the Entrepreneur Within, is a must for anyone whose business could benefit from a new approach, whether it be boosting sales, improving cash flow, increasing profits, launching a new product or creating new markets. Delegates will take away cost-effective project ideas that can transform a business.
Too Good to be True, led by FEO members Sally Wray from Go Hire and John Gilbert from Eskimo Soup – this session will give an insider view of FEO’s unique peer-led programmes, looking at how and why they were developed and are offered for free, purely for local entrepreneurs to benefit. Attendees from FEO’s xGen, Ignition and 360 programmes will give first-hand insights, adding a truly entrepreneurial buzz to The Business Day.
Finally, 100 not out! Meet FEO ‘Centurions’ Graeme Pittaway, Tim Rix, Nicholas Oughtred and Thomas Martin for this intimate insight into local companies whose roots stretch back more than 100 years. Learn how they’ve weathered the storms of time including world wars and political uncertainty. Find out how they have stayed true to their roots through changing stewardship and, why they are innovating for future working methods and technology.
Jan Brumby, Chief Executive of For Entrepreneurs Only says: “As always, our FEO members are busy planning interesting, informative and entertaining breakout sessions for The Business Day at Bridlington Spa.
“We work with topical Entrepreneurial themes that will appeal to all delegates and give them ideas and food for thought to take back into their own businesses. We had some wonderful feedback from last year’s sessions, all of which were packed to the rafters and we are looking forward to inspiring everyone again in June.”
