Returning from the bustling city of Liverpool, where the air was thick with innovation and entrepreneurship, we take a moment to reflect on our journey at BizX 2024. The event, expertly and skillfully hosted by Stephen Mulhern, brought together a stellar lineup of speakers, including:

  • Piers Linney, former Dragons’ Den Investor,
  • Deborah Meaden, entrepreneur and TV personality,
  • Dame Kelly Holmes, Olympic Gold Medalist,
  • Donald Miller, best-selling author and CEO of StoryBrand,
  • Brad Sugars, the World’s No.1 Business Coach and Founder of ActionCOACH,
  • Andy Bounds, Britain’s Sales Trainer of The Year,
  • Michael Heppell, international best-selling author of How To Be Brilliant,
  • Jamil Qureshi, psychology practitioner, and high-performance expert.

As  business owners, we’ve come to understand the importance of periodically stepping back from the daily grind to reassess and realign our strategies. Participating in events like BizX serves as a catalyst for this reflection, offering a platform to absorb insights and perspectives that can shape our path forward, both personally and professionally.

The experience at BizX was akin to immersing ourselves in a melting pot of ideas and experiences. From engaging panel discussions to hands-on workshops, we were exposed to a wealth of knowledge and expertise that offered challenge and sparked new ways of thinking. This personal growth, fuelled by the exchange of ideas and experiences, has equipped Charlotte and I with a renewed sense of clarity and purpose as business owners and leaders.

Moreover, BizX provided an invaluable opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals who share our passion for innovation and growth. The relationships formed during the event have the potential to evolve into collaborative ventures, partnerships, and friendships that enrich both our business and personal journey.

One of the recurring themes that resonated deeply with us was the emphasis on people and culture within businesses. Throughout the event, there was a notable spotlight on the significance of nurturing a positive work environment, fostering employee well-being, and cultivating a strong company culture.

Speakers like Brad Sugars, Andy Bounds, Michael Heppell, and Jamil Qureshi shared insights into the pivotal role that people play in driving business success. From strategies for effective leadership to techniques for enhancing team performance, their presentations underscored the importance of investing in the personal and professional growth of employees.

Moreover, the emphasis on culture as a cornerstone of business is a view that we wholeheartedly advocate both within our own business and our business community. Building a positive and inclusive culture fosters collaboration, innovation, and resilience within organisations. By cultivating a work environment where individuals feel valued, supported, and empowered to contribute their best, we can create a foundation for sustained success and growth.

In conclusion, BizX 2024 was not just a forum for discussing business strategies and market trends; it was a celebration of the people who drive innovation and progress within organisations.

As we return home, we are inspired to redouble our efforts in nurturing our team and enhancing our culture of excellence and inclusivity. We extend our gratitude to the organisers, speakers, and fellow attendees for shining a spotlight on this critical aspect of business success. Until we meet again in Farnborough – thank you for the injection of inspiration, and here’s to the journey ahead!
