Fortune Favours the Brave

The Grand Marquee, Wynyard Hall Hotel, Wynyard, Stockton-on-Tees TS22 5NF

Sponsored by Recognition PR and hosted by BBC journalist and presenter Charlie Charlton, 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.

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.

Inspirational speakers include...

Jo Fairley, Green & Black's

After founding multi-million-pound global company Green & Black’s chocolate, Jo Fairley has become a successful journalist, magazine editor, author, and director of a wellbeing centre. Now, she’s the owner of subscription service the Perfume Society.

James Brown, Beer52

Inspired by a craft beer road trip on the back of his dad’s Harley, James launched Beer52 in September 2013, and has since grown it into one of the fastest growing online subscription businesses in Europe.

Phil Kite and Claire Hughes, Team Tyne Innovation

A schedule of ‘eat, sleep, row, repeat’ powered Phil, Claire, and their group of North East rowers to victory in January 2019 when they crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 42 days 10 hours and 26 minutes – a new record time for a mixed four.

Scale-up Panel

Chair of the Panel Graham Robb (Recognition PR) will be joined by Dan Martin (Elmtronics), Dan Foskett (Connection Flooring), Joanne Bell and John Betts (INDUSTRO) and Steve Erdal (Wordnerds) for a panel discussion about how to successfully scale a business.
