LIZ TAYLOR – The Devil is in the Detail 11.30am
In 2015 Liz Taylor gave cameras unrivalled behind-the-scenes access to some of her events, the Taylor Lynn Corporation’s (TLC) exclusive clients and team of suppliers who deliver private and corporate events right across the UK and Europe. The result was the hit Channel 4 show, ‘Millionaire Party Planner’ which recently won the National Reality Television Award for Best Business Show.
Entertaining. Innovative. Inspiring. Liz Taylor has been a passionate advocate for creating events that push back boundaries and create the impossible, but also a pioneer in a business sector that has grown from fledgling enterprise, to a multi-billion-pound global industry.
A mother. A grandmother. A businesswoman. A property tycoon (in the making!). Liz believes in following her instincts and seizing opportunities. She will share her experiences working with Royal guests to pop icons, soap stars to sports stars, blue-chip businesses to entrepreneurial successes. What makes her events different? What makes TLC a success? She explains why for her, the ‘devil is definitely in the detail’!
Ambitious from the start, Liz launched her own company, Liz Taylor Associates, in 1985 and began the long road to persuading leading corporate companies that an event planner could enhance their business. She joined forces with industry colleague Dianne Lynn to form the Taylor Lynn Corporation in 1995 creating a successful team that was to last until 2008, when Liz managed an amicable partnership buy-out. That same year TLC bucked the recession by topping the £4M turnover mark.
Liz sits on the Business and Enterprise Advisory Board at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School, and is a recipient of the Manchester Evening News Business of the Year Award and a Legend of Industry Award from Variety, the Children’s Charity.

LIZZIE JONES – Founder of The Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund 10.15am
We are delighted to announce that this year our charity partner is The Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund and returning to support us introducing the charity will be Woman of the Year Award Winner Lizzie Jones.
Lizzie is spearheading the campaign to raise funds for equipment that could prove the difference between life and death at Rugby League clubs across the UK.
Lizzie reduced a Wembley crowd to tears and moved millions of TV viewers with an emotional performance at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards. She launched the Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund named in honour of her late husband. Danny Jones was a Keighley Cougars and Wales international half-back who collapsed and died from an undiagnosed heart condition while playing against London Skolars in May 2015. Following his tragic death, Lizzie successfully campaigned for cardiac screening to become mandatory at every Kingstone Press Championship and League 1 club, as it already is in the First Utility Super League.
Now, Lizzie has joined forces with the RFL Benevolent Fund to raise money to create a fund that will provide assistance to hundreds of community clubs and junior teams across the country to purchase defibrillators.
Defibrillators cost around £1,000 each and provide potentially life-saving treatment to anyone suffering a cardiac arrest. Lizzie says: "This is my way of saying a big ‘Thank You’ to the wider Rugby League family for all they have done for me and my children since we lost Danny"

In 1997 after a failed suicide attempt, Richard decided that there had to be another way. The turn around has been incredible. He decided to write a book about his transformation which sold almost half a million copies and has been translated into eleven languages. His story is one audiences do not forget in a hurry. He is now one of the UK’s most sought after motivational speakers and a presentation skills coach.
It was standing room only when Richard delivered two presentations last year at our Be Inspired Conference, so it was only fitting that we would invite him back again to host his own event, The iCan Speak Showcase
