Entrepreneur Forum - back to business after the election

As the dust settles following one of the most uncertain elections for decades, what opportunities and threats lie ahead?

Our 2015 forum, being held on Wednesday 1 July 2015 in Guildford, will include keynote contributions from highly respected industry figures, sharing many years’ experience and so well placed to offer a balanced perspective on the business climate. There will also be plenty of time for networking and questions.

We are delighted to be joined by:

  • Guy Rigby, partner and head of entrepreneurial services at Smith & Williamson. Author of “From Vision to Exit”, the entrepreneur’s guide to building and selling a business, Guy has grown his own business to a successful exit and also has a wealth of experience as a business adviser to others.
  • Gareth Wokes, who over 20 years steered the Logic Group through many phases of development, ending up as one of the UK’s leading payment and loyalty specialist technology business managing significant volumes of payment transactions and pan-European member-based loyalty schemes. In 2015 Gareth led his team through a highly successful sale to Barclaycard, the global payments business of Barclays Bank plc.
  • Chris Piper, the Agent of the Bank of England for Central Southern England. Chris has represented the Bank in the region for six years having previously worked in a variety of roles for the Bank based in Threadneedle Street. He holds regular discussions with owners and senior management of individual businesses, organisations and groups across Central Southern England to assess business conditions in the UK and to brief the policy committees of the Bank.
