LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The organisers of the forthcoming Elite Business Event National Conference and Exhibition have audited the UK’s top business brains for their best advice for SMEs before convening on the much-needed conference designed to be a shot in the arm for British business.
The Elite Business Event, which takes place on March 18 & 19 at the Old Truman Brewery in the middle of Shoreditch's ultra-creative hub, is reaching out to the lifeblood of the UK economy - the 5 million SMEs who employ 25 million people between them and represent 99% of British businesses. The specially curated conference brings together many of Britain's best businessmen and thought leaders and is guaranteed to provide much-needed advice and guidance that will be invaluable, perhaps even vital, to SMEs.
The impressive line-up includes Levi Roots, musician and creator of Reggae Reggae Sauce, Brent Hoberman, co-founder of Lastminute.com and founder of Made.com, Kanya King- founder of the MOBO Awards and Michelle Mone, Founder of Ultimo and the newest Dragon in the Den.
Making friends in business can make or break a start-up SME, according to the experts. Kathryn Parsons, co-founder of Decoded, says that, ‘Exposing yourself to a really diverse group of people you’ve never met before and building connections and networks is super valuable’.
The Elite Business Event aims to create the very best environment to meet other business owners and entrepreneurs to share advice, creativity, and even a dash of healthy criticism with some of the most enlightened business thinkers in the UK today.
The Elite Business Event will be a rare lifeline for any SME struggling to get a concept off the ground or planning the next challenge. However, it is much more than just an SME conference. As well as providing a unique forum of peer networking, professional advice, and seminars, the event also hosts drop in clinics manned by a team of government backed experts on hand to provide expert help to businesses. The Elite Business Event is a free event and is partnered by the UKTI, Growth Accelerator and London Chamber of Commerce.
