gdb Members Acumen Business Law celebrate their tenth edition of their Business Convention!

Published: 29 May 2019

The ACUMEN BUSINESS CONVENTION 2019 held its special tenth edition on May 8th with hundreds of decision makers from across the region.  This year was absolutely packed with fantastic speakers, entertainment and excitement where delegates were greeted by tribal zebra people, and that’s not just the Acumen team! 

Zebra dancers brought the wow factor and got everyone energised for the afternoon.  The big build up was worth it as Special Guest Speaker, Tony Bloom owner and chair of Brighton & Hove Albion FC shared his fascinating business journey with the captivated audience. 

To top it off Keynote Speaker Simon Woodroffe OBE, the Founder of YO! Sushi, gave a most inspirational performance with Guest speakers including Graham Moore, the co-founder of Humanutopia, sharing how his own experiences inspired him to empower young adults from all walks of life.  Also Jules White, the entrepreneur’s sales coach and author of Live it Love it Sell it, gave motivational and practical advice showing that everyone can get great results when they sell the human way. 

As well as the thought provoking speakers the day featured Link & Learn sessions (with essential legal tips) and masses of quality networking opportunities throughout the day with lots of surprises too! 

The excitement didn’t stop there, the celebratory after-party rounded off the day perfectly with a fantastic chance to catch up, chat, relax and have fun!

Penina Shepherd, Founder of ACUMEN BUSINSS LAW said, “It’s really great to see so many business professionals together... It’s been an amazing celebration of our 10th convention and we look forward to many more to come!“
