Event description

Description

Join us for this intimate two hour evening event which is part of our ScaleUp Series in partnership with O2 Business. You'll learn top tips from an inspiring entrepreneur on how to scale your business for growth. Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones will interview John Roberts, founder of ao.com.

In the year 2000, John Roberts was in the pub with his friend, who bet him £1 that he couldn't sell appliances online and so he took up the challenge! In 2014 the company was voted number 4 in the Times 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work for and won the Customer Service Initiative award at the Oracle Retail Week Awards. The company went on to float on the London Stock Exchange.

This event is suitable for you if:

You are an existing business owner looking to scale your business to the next level and you would like to know more about:

  • Accessing good talent
  • Accessing UK and international markets
  • Building your leadership capacity
  • Getting the right amount of bank and equity finance to grow
  • Navigating infrastructure using technology


The Scale Up Institute released a 2017 report which highlights these are the key barriers UK business owners face when trying to scale.

Enterprise Nation and The Office Group members get 25% off. If you aren't an Enterprise Nation member yet, you can purchase the membership ticket.
