Deirdre Bounds – From bedsit to a £20m exit 

Her accomplishments over the years are many and include presenting for C4 Dispatches, back packing  around-the-world, teaching English in Japan, deriving a bus in the Aussie outback, becoming a stand-up comic and writing a best-selling book.   As a Successful entrepreneur Deirdre started up a business from a bedsit and turned it into the world’s biggest gap year travel company. And she did all that in just 10 years! In this talk Deirdre will look at the new paradigm for Leadership in 2014, focussing on four areas; honesty, fairness, commitment to self knowledge and contribution.  Deirdre will look at:

•How do we as individuals lead our teams to survive in these very challenging times?
•Is it really possible to get more done by doing less?
•How do we set free creativity and energy in ourselves and others when pressure and fear surround us?
•Why is it better for me and my business to ‘play to play’ rather ‘play to win’?
Her insights come from creating her own company and from many of her own mistakes and successes as a leader.

Nicky Pattinson – Sell Yourself To A Better Life

At 16 on my first day in my first job as a sales assistant in a shoe shop, i sold more pairs in one day than anybody else in one WEEK. So began my illustrious career in sales with all its twists, turns – and the stuff you don’t read in a normal business book. I have no degree, no qualification from any college – but put me in front of your people and you’ll see what EXPERIENCE buys! I actually took a market stall selling cookies and cakes from 1k a week to 37.5k a week (within 2 years) 23 years ago. In the last year or so my ‘very different’ programme of simple concepts has literally doubled and trebled sales everywhere from legal services to pan shops, make – up to T shirts.

Frequently asked questions

How is this event different? 

This is a stellar gathering of world class speakers and trainers coming together to share their practical strategies, tools, tips, experiences and mindset. No areas barred. This is not a “sales” conference where the speakers come just to sell their own programmes – like most of the conferences I’ve been to. Neither is it a “parade” of people of perfect people. These are real people you can relate to who have overcome the same challenges you are going through and achieved phenomenal things with their lives – and they are here to challenge and inspire you to do the same so you can see your business through to its next level of growth.
