The idea for the annual High Growth Summit started with requests from clients and businesses across the East Midlands to come together, network with likeminded individuals, learn and be inspired. Simply, we are filling a need in the market to bring together owners of businesses who already are, or who want to achieve high growth, with experts who are gurus in this field or have achieved amazing growth in their own companies.
Insights, strategies and practical ideas will be delivered in one highly focused, inspirational day with all proceeds from the event going directly to the East Midlands charity: 1% Matters.
