This year was absolutely packed with fantastic speakers, entertainment and excitement where delegates were greeted by tribal zebra people, and that’s not just the Acumen team!

As well as the thought provoking speakers the day featured Link & Learn sessions (with essential legal tips) and masses of quality networking opportunities throughout the day with lots of surprises too! This special edition convention saw the launch of speakers’ arenas which showcased extra TED style talks in a choice of topic making these sessions a very useful bonus section of the day.

Zebra dancers brought the wow factor and got everyone energised for the afternoon. The big build up was worth it as Special Guest Speaker, Tony Bloom owner and chair of Brighton & Hove Albion FC shared his fascinating business journey with the captivated audience.

To top it off Keynote Speaker Simon Woodroffe OBE, the Founder of YO! Sushi, gave a most inspirational performance and got his groove on with a tune!

Guest speakers included Graham Moore, the co-founder of Humanutopia, sharing how his own experiences inspired him to empower young adults from all walks of life. Also Jules White, the entrepreneur’s sales coach and author of Live it Love it Sell it, gave motivational and practical advice showing that everyone can get great results when they sell the human way.

The excitement didn’t stop there, the celebratory after-party rounded off the day perfectly with a fantastic chance to catch up, chat, relax and have fun!

Penina Shepherd, Founder of ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW said, “It’s really great to see so many business professionals together, all sharing the experience and making new meaningful connections. That’s what makes the convention so special. It’s been an amazing celebration of our 10th convention and we look forward to many more to come!“
