Fortune Favours the Brave

Focusing on how being brave and staying true to your beliefs can bring huge benefits to your company is the focus of our spring conference: Fortune Favours the Brave.

Attended by over 200 North East entrepreneurs, Fortune Favours the Brave is very much about getting under the skin of those who take chances and finding how what happens when you do - because it's only when you step out of your company zone or are faced with a seemingly 'make or break' moment that you're really tested.

Hosted by Forum favourite Alfie Joey, Fortune Favours the Brave is a day of inspiration, learning and making new connections.
