According to Forbes, “When people are inspired by a company, 81% will recommend it to family and friends and 55% will spend more money with the company!” With about 15,000 new businesses registered each month in the UK and multitudes around the world seeking alternative sources of income in the shaky economy, the ‘INSPIRE in Business!’ Event is well timed and placed to inspire the next dimension in entrepreneurship.

The world is changing and, with the rise of digital media and social media marketing, inspiration is at the heart of business today. As a matter of fact, not many of us want to do business with uninspiring people or companies these days. But what does it really mean to ‘inspire’? Who can inspire, how and for what results? This diverse and dynamic seminar series promises to help business people get the answers and practical insights they need to move fluidly with the times.

Some of the fascinating speakers at this very exciting seminar series include Dr. Yvonne Thompson CBE (the co-founder of Choice FM described by The Independent newspaper as Britain’s first black female millionaire), best-selling author; Nick Williams, lawyer and human rights advocate; Brendon Christian and Dianna Bonner who left her job at the International Tennis Federation to launch a photography business serving clients like Richard Branson, James Caan, Estee Lauder and the Financial Times. Stephanie Hale, formerly an Assistant Director at Oxford University’s Creative Writing School will share how she transitioned from austere times in academia to helping millionaire authors get their inspiring message out to the world in a big way. TEDx Speaker, David Parrish, will also explain why companies like Apple, Sony and Virgin are global leaders today due to their creative and innovative approach to business.

There will be 15 speakers in total – sharing inspiring perspectives on topics such as creativity, blogging, media relations, visual design, branding, relationship building, photography and more. However, this is not a parade of 7 and 8 figure earners only. The speakers represent a cross section of business achievers that business owners can relate to wherever they are on their entrepreneurial journey. The event is unique because it dynamically explores what it really means to ‘INSPIRE in Business!’ from diverse industry perspectives.

The ‘INSPIRE in Business!’ Event is suited to people who are already in the early stages of starting their own businesses, service providers (e.g. consultants, coaches, trainers etc.) who want to leverage their time and expertise using new media technology, businesses who want to boost profitability by distinguishing themselves from the competition, as well as successful business owners who are seeking new insights… and a touch of inspiration.

In these challenging times, creativity and inspiration are the real currency of business. With millions realising that the old methods of doing business are no longer working as potently, now is as good a time as ever to embrace change and discover how to truly ‘INSPIRE in Business!’

It sounds like a great symposium. We see so much about inspiration in general. I think that it is great to see it zero in on business.

    @ Martin Casper: Thanks so much for your contribution. Of recent, companies like Apple, Amazon and Virgin have proven that inspiring brands, businesses and profiles can be hugely profitable. I believe that businesses of all types and sizes can inspire in the marketplace too.
