Mike SouthonWho is Mike Southon?

Mike will be delivering his new keynote speech: ‘A Touch of Branson’, which explains how Sir Richard Branson turns his good ideas into great businesses. It’s based on the five on-stage interviews Mike has done with Sir Richard over the past year, as well as extensive research and interviews with key people in Virgin Group.

It really will be a great opportunity for everyone, from people just starting out, to those growing their business, to learn how find some of that ‘Branson magic’.

Mike Southon is one of the UK’s leading authorities on entrepreneurship and sales, with a weekly column every Saturday in the Financial Times.

Mike is co-author of several best-selling business books, including The Beermat Entrepreneur and Sales on a Beermat. He is a Visiting Fellow in Innovation and Entrepreneurship at London South Bank University and has made frequent appearances on television and radio.

Mike built and sold his own company in the 80s and worked on seventeen different start-ups in the 90s. Mike Southon is now one of the UK’s leading entrepreneur mentors, and delivers over 100 presentations every year, all over the world.

Brad Burton 225pxWho is Brad Burton?

Six years ago Brad delivered pizzas to keep his start-up business afloat, now he delivers hilarious, inspiring, laugh out loud talks on life, business and motivation.

Never one to toe the conventional line, Brad used the motivation of £25,000 of personal debt and many people telling him “it’ll never work” to build the world’s fastest growing business breakfast network; now a multi-million pound international business.
Don’t underestimate Brad. The jeans, t-shirt and Manc accent conceal an energy and incredible ability to make things happen that is truly infectious and will hugely inspire your audience.

How will the event help the NSPCC?

All profits from the event will be donated to the NSPCC.

The NSPCC help children throughout the UK in many ways and run a wide variety of projects, centres and helplines, the most well-known of which is probably Childline.

Each year the ChildLine service receives thousands of calls, from children and young people in distress, wanting to talk about a problem they face.  In addition to this, caring adults can call the NSPCC Helpline if they are worried about a child’s safety.  The support and advice received calms fears, solves problems and, in the most extreme cases, even saves lives.

We hope that the Business AM event can play a part in helping the NSPCC achieve its’ vision of ending child cruelty in the UK.
