We began in 2017 with our Brave Conference. This became Braver in 2018 and, capping off this trilogy, our 2019 London conference will be our Bravest yet. Particularly now we're living in uncertain times, with Brexit and the future of this country very much at a crossroads.

Now is the time for business leaders from all walks of life to be as brave as they can be. With that in mind we promise you an extraordinary day of life-changing talks that will inspire and empower both you and your teams, all in the company of the best gathering of global marketers. Join us for a fresh perspective, discover new ideas and connect with 400 other people just like you.

Our 2018 conference sold out fast. Ensure sure you don't miss this one, it's going to be great. To remind you how we do things watch last year's conference sessions on Youtube or listen to them on Soundcloud

Programme

Rob Poynton – Be Braver by doing less
As our ambitions build, so does the pressure: most of us assume that the only way to achieve more is to do more. Rob's background as an improviser, an educator and a spiritual person leads him to advocate that pulling the emergency brake - stopping and doing less - will help us be braver and do more.

Gina Miller – What are you prepared to do for your beliefs?
In the face of a media and political scrum, what does it take to hold true to your beliefs and your country's constitutional principles? What can we learn from someone who has stood face-to-face with the political elite and watched them blink first?

Francesca West and Helen Evans – The Strength to Speak Up
So many of us turn a blind eye to situations or issues that we know are wrong? How do you create the courage to speak out and how do you deal with the consequences? This session shows you how to find and, critically, keep hold of, that courage.

Drew Povey – Mission Impossible in the classroom
What does it take to turn round the worst school in the country? How do you take a demotivated workforce, a deficit in millions and population of uninspired teenagers and create a thriving, ambitious and driven organisation? And how do you keep it going when you are at rock bottom?

David Nott OBE – War Doctor: Surgeon on the front line
What is your definition of ‘making a difference’? Sir David Nott’s is to take unpaid leave and stitch hope and recovery in those who are experiencing the worst that humanity can throw at them; to give proper care to those who are at the most precarious time of their lives. His story will teach us about the importance of drive and resourcefulness, as well as selflessness and compassion.

Billy Whizz aka Billy Monger – Driven. The definition
Where do you find the bravery to get back on track when life has dealt you the cruellest blow. 20 year old Formula 3 Racing Driver Billy Monger, lost both his legs in a horrific accident but within 2 years was back on the race track, having successfully battled with regulators, the world of medicine, and his own demons to win a major championship against his able-bodied peers. A true inspiration.

China L’One – The soundtrack of bravery
Imagine arriving as a refugee from a war torn country at 11, so traumatised that you speak with a profound stutter and find it difficult to communicate with anyone, let alone performing in front of hundreds of people she’s never met. Now imagine being a successful entrepreneur in the music business and always bringing others ‘less fortunate’ with you. China L’One tells her story.

Dan Cable – How to bring your best and bravest self to work
Strategy's important but the real challenge for leaders today is people-shaped: How can you encourage your teams to bring their bravest and best selves to work every day. Using neuroscience and his own research and experience, Dan will explain the theory, the science behind it and give practical examples. Learn from one of the 25 most influential management scholars in the world.

John Allan CBE: Why marketing needs to create and lead a brave culture
What does one of the country's foremost business figures have to say about brave leadership today: why do we need it and what can we do to foster it? As a leader from a FTSE 100 companies, Tesco, this is essential listening.

Vicky Gosling OBE – What 21 years in the RAF and leading the Invictus Games taught me about bravery in business
How do you make brave people even braver? Before being the CEO of a major Sports organisation, Vicky’s led thousands of military personnel in deployments around the world in places such as Afghanistan and Iraq, both in combat and helping the sick and wounded to recover through the power of sport. Vicky will explore how you make brave people braver and how it challenges minds and changes lives.

Thomas Barta
Through stories, Thomas will make the case that brave marketing leadership is key.
