Previous attendees have said…

“The speakers are passionate and extremely knowledgeable, and willing to share their expertise freely.” Gavin Stark | Keto Software “[Finance] is a pretty dry subject but they do a good job of keeping it relevant and fun. There are some great real-world points and learning that can be almost instantly implemented within your business.”  Andy Rose | DuoDesign “A painstaking look at ourselves and what we are and where we aim to be, but worth the effort!” Sue McHugh | Carbon Digital “It’s a must if you are not an expert in any of the subjects. It helps you focus and understand the importance of each topic.” Ed Green | Miranex
