Who on earth are The BLN?

The BLN (Business Leaders Network) was formed in 2007 as a counterblast to the plague of expensive and unproductive networking events targeting the tech sector. We want to serve one customer – delegates – giving them the best environment to meet their peers, exchange ideas and establish useful relationships.

We work from our office in Cambridge, England, and are a small and tightly knit group of people with a reputation for producing great events.

So what do you do?

In a short phrase… we produce events for great audiences.

In a longer sentence… The BLN have produced a number of events over it’s history, all whilst having the motto of being ‘the best, not the biggest’ events in the world in mind. Our audiences are always high quality, only matched by top class speakers, who include household names such as Kathy Sierra, Derek Sivers, Rand Fishkin and Dharmesh Shah.

Okay, fine, but what events have you actually produced?

Today the meat and potatoes of the The BLN’s activities is producing the unique Business of Software Europe and USA, and the Top Three IoT event in the World, IoT Forum. Our events are professionally organised and have had great feedback year after year. We encourage an atmosphere of listening and collaboration, instead of shouting above what others have to say. In the past we have turned down lucrative sponsorship offers to instead maintain the sanctity of what we do. We have a great BLN community and are always looking for great people to join and contribute.

Sounds great. I’d like to find out more.

We’re delighted to hear that! It’s not all that surprising, we didn’t provide a ‘sounds rubbish’ option. You can sign up to our regular email list, which will provide you with a break down of all our upcoming events, as well as video content and exclusive interviews with our world renowned speakers. Sign up here.

And finally, what do your faces look like? 

You’d be surprised how irregularly we get asked this question. We are a small team, but one dedicated to producing high quality events, you can see our faces here. If you have any questions or would like to know more, get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
