It's helped give me the confidence to go out and get the finance I require to really grow my business.

opportunity to gain feedback on my own business and position, some contacts and suggested contacts passed on too.

Brian opened the discussion with a fabulous story. Open, honest communication. Lively discussion which focused on each of the attendees in a genuine helpful manner.

Don't be scared of using equity to fund growth. Timing is key when looking for investment.

Growing the business is not necessarily about needing cash, it sometimes requires considering if you have the necessary people, culture, structure or trading pitches to scale from. If you determine your success milestones along your big journey, assess what you need to reach each one.

Alastair was great. Involved everybody which led to some excellent conversations

It was pleasing that Alastair lightened up the evening by adding in some light humour

Alastair was very inclusive, stimulated discussion to ensure all received value from the evening

Brian was entertaining, engaging and a great story.
