Fortune Favours the Brave

Global Entrepreneurship Week Conference

19 November 2015, 08:00 - 17:00
Redworth Hall Hotel, Surtees Road, Newton Aycliffe, County Durham
DL5 6NT

Sponsored by Recognition PR and hosted by our favourite British radio consultant, entrepreneur and presenter John Myers, Fortune Favours the Brave is your chance to hear from inspirational speakers who are both leading and doing great things to grow dynamic businesses.

Set at Redworth Hall in Durham, the day promises an enthralling journey of high-flying stories and unique opportunities for making new connections; but our conference isn’t just about the speakers.

It’s also about being inspired by the people in the room, making the ‘right connections’ and being stimulated by insights from within your peer group.

Fortune Favours the Brave is very much about getting under the skin of those who take chances and finding out what happens when you do – because it’s only when you step out of your comfort zone or are faced with a seemingly ‘make or break’ moment that you’re really tested.

Take a day out of your business, to work on your business. Learn from those around you, soak up the wisdom of others and be inspired.

Speakers include:
