October 2017

Keynote Speakers

Brad Burton

Every single decision you've ever made in your life has brought you to this moment... the moment where you are reading this. Is it a sign?

Brad left school with no qualifications, spent years on the dole before starting his own business in 2006 with £25,000 of debt. He delivered pizzas at weekends to keep his business afloat. 10 years on, that business; 4Networking....now runs over 5,000+ business networking meetings each year.  He is also the highest rated & reviewed Amazon business author as if that's not enough he's also Business Ambassador for Visit Somerset.  He knows his stuff.

If you want to be entertained and educated in equal measure, then come to this humorous, thought provoking, high energy, motivational talk, where you'll find out, that winning at life, is a whole lot more important than coming first in business.

Can someone really motivate you to positively change your life, business and direction in just 25 minutes?  If you are waiting for a sign to make changes in your life.... this is probably it!

Get there early, he's the opening keynote speaker. Once every seat is full, there is no stopping him.


Dilys Price OBE

When you think of an 84 year old grandmother you think small, frail, cardigans and a shopping trolley. This is exactly the opposite to our Dilys and what sets her apart from not only her age group, but other speakers too! With blonde hair and bright clothes (not forgetting the leather trousers) Dilys REALLY stands out from the crowd.

Dilys may be deemed 'passed it' by societies standards but she's no ordinary Grandma. Aside from the fact that Dilys has a larger than life attitude, an even bigger heart and a smile to make you melt, she is also one kick ass lady!

Dilys founded the charity Touch Trust and made a world of difference to so many people and their lives. Eventually being awarded an OBE for all she has done.

Dilys really does appeal to everyone. She not only has a brilliant business brain but can help you in life too. From building a better, happier life, to relaxing and living life to the full. There are no limits to this Super Grans abilities.

Stef Thomas

But networking doesn't work right?

So in 2017, with social media, content marketing and every other way of connecting online - why bother with real life face to face networking?

Here's the thing, most small businesses are treating their networking as something separate to the rest of their marketing.

The real magic is in joining everything up and,in a fast paced keynot Stefan will explain how he did i, how you can do it and, vitally, how not to make a complete cock of yourself at networking events





Craig Petty

The Bad Boy of Magic

Craig has had a love of magic his whole life, choosing to work professionally several years ago. During his career he has won a multitude of magic awards including both the British Magical Societies' Close Up & Stage Magician of the Year. The Stage Newspaper described him as 'The Speciality Act of the Decade' as well as comparing him to 'Darren Brown on speed'!

Craig went from being accepting in to the Inner Magic Circle with a silver star without even having to audition, to being kicked out for not playing by their antiquated rules. Getting death threats (from fellow magicians) was just one repercussion for choosing to do things his way! So Craig decided to concentrate on the business aspect of his magic & stop worrying about what the magic community thought about him.

The Gloria Brimson Foundation was set up in 2016 by Mark Brimson in memory of his late wife Gloria whom died in 2007 from a Brain A.V.M .
1 in 10 of us are born with a A.V.M so it is something that affects us all at some stage, although many of us aren't aware until the very worse happens.

The idea is to raise over £10,000 for Headway Bristol in support of the fantastic work that they do in supporting both patients and their families who suffer with Brain trauma.

Had Gloria survived then she would have gone through their doors and Mark feels that in some small way by doing this then he is finally doing just that.
