Proud to be speaking at Wired Wessex Entrepreneurs Forum – March 27th

I’m delighted to have been asked to be part of a panel of entrepreneurs at a forthcoming Wired Wessex event on the 27th March 2014.

The Q&A session will see me and other local entrepreneurs sharing our experiences of forming and growing a successful business.

Rich Public Speaking is by no means the finished article yet in terms of my ‘business dream’ but I hope that by sharing the lessons I have learned up to this point, I will be able to make the business journeys of others that little bit easier!

I will be joined on stage at the event by the two lovely people below:

Lorraine Ashover
Managing Director, Minerva Procurement Consultancy Services

Fulfilling a long-standing ambition to be her own boss Lorraine set up Minerva in 2010 in direct response to feedback from the school bursar community and helps schools reduce cost, streamline procurement practices and save time. The company looks after many independent and academy schools and manages significant spend on behalf of clients. Prior to setting up Minerva, Lorraine worked for Barclays Commercial for 20 years, the last seven of which were as an Industry Specialist in the education sector.

Mark Dalton
Managing Director, The Tech Lounge

The Tech Lounge is a growing IT services company based in Basingstoke, established in April 2011. Specialising in bespoke support and maintenance, together with onsite IT consultancy services, they offer services and advice all designed around clients’ individual needs.

Want to come along?


I’d love to see you there. The evening kicks off at 6pm, the price is £5 on the door, including drinks and networking opportunities.
