Story is one of the most powerful things that connects us as humans.
As more and more consumers are making choices based on a brand’s mission and vision, telling compelling stories and having a powerful brand narrative is critical.
OTHERWISE YOU COULD WELL BE LOSING CUSTOMERS TO BETTER STORYTELLERS.

Session: If you’ve started or own a small business then you will know how difficult getting loans or investment can be. If you have aspirations to sell your business one day and realise some form of capital return then have you thought about how to make your business as attractive as possible to a potential investor? The global financial crisis in 2008 signalled a turning point in the access to capital for small and medium sized businesses. 99% of the businesses in the UK are classed as small or medium sized but the distribution of capital to this sector is woefully under represented. Necessity is the mother of invention so come and learn how new and alternative forms of investment are helping small business grow and sell.
