Business Value Creation in Manchester
We were thrilled to get the summer off to a cracking start with our second annual Business Value Creation Event, this time held in Central Manchester, on Tuesday 9th July. The Sunfish team has held a great many events over the years/decades, so we know nothing ever goes swimmingly, but this one was as close to perfect as we’re ever going to get.
Our target was to have 30 tech-related founders/owners/directors/CEOs in a room together. We achieved pretty much exactly that. Two late call offs but pretty much everybody we expected to arrive, turned up. Many thanks to all the delegates who made it and thanks for your kind feedback.
"How did you get 30 business leaders of our level in the same room?”
Interestingly, one of the most common remarks people made was “How did you get 30 business leaders of our level in the same room?” Let’s just say it’s nice when marketing works and hard work pays off – and if you’d like help with your own events, you know where to come! Seriously though, we’re humbled that so many MD-level people took time out of their busy schedules to join us.
There were two main reasons why we had a full house and an ideal number of attendees. Firstly, the presentation content resonated with the audience; who, after all, doesn’t want to build a better and more valuable audience. Secondly, the opportunity to network with their peers, and to take part in the interactive panel discussion, was a compelling feature for most.
The combination of expert speakers and experienced business leaders resulted in some great insights. We covered everything from what investors are looking for, through to the financial metrics that measure value, and finally the commercial dynamics that build that value in the first place. We can’t repeat that wisdom in a blog but we’re all looking forward to 2020 and the next event.
It’s now January 2020 and we’re delighted to announce that we have booked the date for our next event. This one will be Tuesday 20th May, in Birmingham, with venue and full agenda to be confirmed.
