Entrepreneurial tales are cued up for Humber Business Week bash
8th May 2018
FOUR Grimsby-area entrepreneurs will inject South Bank vitality into Humber Business Week when they join Hull-born national motivational speaker Nicky Pattinson (pictured below left) on a North Lincolnshire stage.
Will Douglas of Axholme Brewing Co, Karen Webb-Meek of In the Pink, Melanie Tillett of Tilletts and TedX speaker Richard Askam are to tell their inspirational business stories to an anticipated 250-strong audience.
Described as an “afternoon packed to the gunnels” The Biggest Small Business Network Event is being hosted by E-Factor’s Business Hive and North Lincolnshire Ambassador Programme, at Forest Pines Hotel, Broughton.
Free to attend, it takes place from 1.30pm on Thursday, June 7.
Mark Webb, pictured right, managing director of E-Factor, said the event will be a “reverse” of the programme that was put together four years ago.
Then a record crowd was drawn out for a South Bank participation in the week, with Dan Germain, head of creative at Innocent; Martin McCourt, former chief executive of Dyson, and Jo Fairly, co-founder of Green & Black’s, provided an insight into what led them to succeed with their own iconic businesses.
Mr Webb believes the audience of 170 could be beaten. “It will be exactly the same set-up, only on this occasion it is our up and coming businesses talking about the ground they are breaking."
Axholme is preparing to bring beer brewing on a commercial scale back to Grimsby, while In the Pink’s Dollie Jewellery spin-off is enjoying a retail boom, having been listed by Virgin Atlantic. Tilletts’ online venture is proving fruitful and Mr Askam has taken his inspirational talks around the globe, while helping huge brands get up close and personal with their customers.
