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.

Focusing on how being brave and staying true to your beliefs can bring huge benefits to your company, our Global Entrepreneurship Week conference promises to be an inspirational day and a great chance to catch up with over 200 of your fellow North East entrepreneurs.

Confirmed speakers to date include:

Mike Welch, Blackcircles - Starting with a grant of £500, Mike built the world's first 'click & fit' tyre retailer, selling to Michelin in 2015 for circa £50m.

Karen Lynch, Belu Water - Karen turned Belu around from a huge deficit to become a completely social & ethical enterprise, which, to date, has donated £2.2m to WaterAid.

Nas Khan, Jennings Motor Group - Joining as a graduate sales executive, Nas rose through the ranks to become sole proprietor of the business, driving rapid expansion through investment in his staff and the communities within which they work.

Amar Latif, Traveleyes - 'The blind guy who wants to show you the world,' Amar is an international explorer & founded the first tour operator for sighted and visually impaired travellers.

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.
