Key Speakers for the event:

 

GO Ape – North Lincolnshire Investment

 

The origins of Go Ape lie in France. Back in 2001, Tris and Becs Mayhew were on holiday in the Auvergne with their six-month old baby and came across a French family swinging through the trees. From the looks on their faces, it was clear both the kids and their parents were having the time of their lives.

Already thinking about stepping off the corporate ladder, Tris and Becs saw an opportunity to start a business moulded by their own values. So they seized the moment, quit their London jobs and began the Go Ape adventure.

31 courses later, they’ve built one of the fastest growing companies in the country and have plans to take the Go Ape message all over the UK and beyond.

 

Richard Askam, TED Talker

 

Richard Askam is an accomplished speaker and successful entrepreneur who now shares his vast experience with other organisations, and individuals, keen to succeed in our ever-changing world.


In his twenties, Richard realised that his family’s small chain of off-licences was doomed by the supermarket phenomenon rapidly changing the business landscape. Using his entrepreneurial spirit, sharp judgement and understanding of future trends, Richard created a new business from the ashes of the old.  Starting from scratch in a rented garage, he built one of the country’s most profitable independent wine merchants.  Using success as a springboard for further innovation, and by responding to what the market needed, he created another start-up company - which is now the UK’s largest personalised gift business. In less than a decade it has delivered significant profit for global brands such as Barclays, Interflora, Coca-Cola, Unilever and United Biscuits.

Richard believes passionately that success today relies on a company’s ability to interact personally with every individual client – regardless of organisational size or geographic location. Today’s customers expect this and emerging technology is vastly increasing the complexity in achieving it.His vision, attitude and ideas have helped a variety of organisations and executives that are serious about growth and development. Recent clients include Royal Mail, Hewlett-Packard & Blackhawk Network. Richard’s warm sense of humour and energetic presentational style often leave audiences surprised at how much of his industry secrets he shares. He talks authoritatively with a unique combination of inspiring, entertaining and motivating stories. Key topics include: developing brand strategy, customer engagement, acceptance of failure, employee development, understanding (and sometimes avoiding) new technology and, of course, how to treat your customers personally. Richard’s advice and guidance are invaluable in helping an organisation identify, understand and exploit the challenges facing business today - and tomorrow.
