Headline Speakers


Ben Potter, Business Development Mentor and Advisor


Pitch candy & unicorns: Are you making business development harder than it should be?

Winning new clients – it’s the lifeblood of any business, big or small. But it’s a really tough nut to crack. You’ve probably tried a bit of everything, with nothing quite panning out as you hoped or expected.

Why is this? What are you doing wrong?

Ben Potter will discuss the common challenges faced by agencies and freelancers when it comes to winning the ‘right’ work. And he’ll share a load of tips and ideas to help you sell your services and ideas with more gusto in 2020.


After 15 years ‘on the front line’, Ben helps agencies to approach business development with purpose and confidence. He empowers business developers and account managers to win and retain the ‘right’ clients, whilst providing agency owners with peace of mind that they’re doing enough of the right things, consistently well, to grow their business.


Jason Nebitt & Sophie Hainsworth, Founders of LoyalFree App.

How designing digital trails can support the changing high street

Jason Nesbitt and Sophie Hainsworth founded LoyalFree in 2016 – now used in 16 towns and cities, the multi award winning app invites the public to save money when they shop local through digital loyalty schemes, competitions and deals.

But consumer demands have changed and the pair have used technology to cater to these changes, introducing digital trails to their offering, so people can interact with the high street and enjoy it in a way that’s relevant to them, e.g. through a Vegan or Eco-Friendly trail. 
Come along to hear the app founders talk about a recent success story involving a digital LEGO trail in Leicester City and about the challenges they’ve faced scaling their business across the UK.
