Getting BIG, Staying BIG.

A forum for business leaders to think, talk & learn about scaling business.The first BLN Growth Forum was held in July 2010 for 180 entrepreneurs and investors in some of the UK’s fastest growing businesses. The speakers had created over $20 billion of company value between them – one called it the first world-class conference they had attended in Cambridge. 

BLN events are universally known for:

  • Great speakers with no BS, thought-provoking, actionable ideas.
  • Engaging quality audiences who contribute actively to an event.
  • Helping CEOs to spend time working on, not in, their businesses.
  • Generous networking time – to extend debate and build commercial links.

We will hear from entrepreneurial ‘action leaders’ (as opposed to ‘thought leaders’) and discuss relevant, actionable opportunities for your business.

The format is simple, but productive:

  • Stories, discussions and debate from speakers who are experts by dint of their real world entrepreneurial experience.
  • Small special interest workshops run under Chatham House Rule.
  • Great people, great networking.

BLN events use tried and trusted formats that encourage open discussion and active networking for participants invited to ensure the event is more than the sum of its high quality audience.

We really care about hearing interesting stuff from people that matter and can teach people by example.

We don’t care about hearing from ‘big names’, that don’t say anything new – or controversial. We really, really care about making sure that the right people are in the room – to listen, to engage, to discuss and find ways of doing business together.
