Lesley Jones – De-novo Consultants
The perceived attraction of being your own boss, having more time and money to enjoy life, was compelling. So, you left your well-paid job to set up your own business. A few years pass and the long hours, lack of support, erratic cash-flow and loneliness take their toll and you start to ask yourself ‘Did I make the right decision to give up my full time well paid JOB?’
Having made the transition from employee to business owner herself, Lesley has used her hindsight to develop a practical framework that will enable enthusiastic individuals to transition successfully from employee to entrepreneur.
During the workshop, Lesley will discuss the reality of what it takes to make this transition, and how and where to get help when you need it. Lesley will also share the framework and explain how you can start to use it, to take your business and your lifestyle to the next level.

12pm – Grow your business like Airbnb and Twitter
Global brands such as Twitter, Airbnb, Facebook and Dropbox all started with one person and a dream. Each of these businesses have one thing in common, they used growth hacking tactics to grow their business. In this talk Steve will share some of the secrets of how they grew and how you can employ similar tactics in your own business to fuel growth in 2019 and beyond.
Steve has run his own small business for nearly ten years and understands the mindset and challenges of the small business owner. He has learned that silver bullets don’t exist in business, you can’t skip the steps and shortcut your way to success. Instead you have to test lots of initiatives, some will succeed, some will fail. With each failure comes success as you’ve learned what doesn’t work. Turning failure into success is what has driven his career of the last five years helping to grow the UK’s largest automotive leasing brand. He is a certified and experienced Growth Master, deploying marketing tactics to help brands grow their customer base and retain more customers. Currently growing a startup wine brand with aspirations to disrupt the UK wine sector.
