Innovative businesses are constantly disrupting the status quo and generating new ideas to gain a competitive advantage. Do the same and you could become the next big thing!

New markets are appearing all the time with changes being triggered in the way we communicate, the way we eat, the way we travel and the way we behave and this in turn has created completely new business opportunities. These Movers and Shakers have built some of the most exciting new products and services today and have re-imagined existing markets in the world of digital, beauty and food. Take this chance to hear their inspirational stories.

Speakers: Michael Acton-Smith OBE, CEO and founder of Moshi Monsters; Vanita Parti, founder of Blink Brow Bar; Sam Bompas, co-founder of Bompas & Parr. Moderated by DueDil editor-in-chief and Real Business co-founder Matthew Rock. The panel discussion will be followed by a drinks reception.
