Following the success of our breakfast event on the 27th May at the RBS Offices in London, there was significant demand for a follow-up event. We have therefore arranged our next event for the 24th July from 1pm – 5pm, which will be a conference for disabled entrepreneurs.

The aim of the conference is to inspire and motivate people with disabilities to start their own businesses and provide some free practical tips and tools to help them to begin their journey.

We have a line up of distinguished speakers including 2 Paralympian Gold Medallists, Danielle Brown and Dan Pepper, Ben Wolfenden (Winner of the Stelios Award 2014), Seema Flower, one of the UK’s top blind entrepreneurs and Matthew Newbury (successful property developer featured in TV show ‘secret millionaire’). There will also be fantastic opportunity to network with like minded entrepreneurs.

The session will be divided into four sections.


You will hear from successful entrepreneurs including Brad Francis (Founder of BFM Communications) and Shane Bratby (Founder who will discuss what inspired them to start their own businesses.

Our guest speaker, Danielle Brown, Double Paralympic gold medallist in Archery and world champion, will speak about what inspired her to start her own business which revolves around motivating others to be able to do their best.


Once you have been inspired to start your own business what do you do next? This session will give you some practical guidelines and tips on how to take your idea to the next level and start to develop it further.

The following topics will be covered:
