Businesses leaders who have overcome extraordinary challenges such as Parkinson’s and a near fatal car accident will be sharing their inspirational stories and success tips with ambitious local companies.
Powertalks 2017 will take place at Bishop Grosseteste University on February 8, hosted by business development expert Russell Payne from chartered accountants Russell Payne & Co.
All profits from this event will go to Lincolnshire Air Ambulance, which is a service that Russell says is the only reason he is still here today, following a bad car accident that saw him with broken ribs among other injuries.
Chief Executive of Atom Bank, Mark Mullen, will talk about how his app-based digital bank sets out to challenge the High Street competition, whilst Jimmy’s Iced Coffee owner Jim Cregan will explain how he discovered iced coffee in Australia and brought it to the UK shores very successfully.
Communications Trainer Keith Warren will speak about his daily challenges living and working with Parkinson’s and how he overcomes these.
Wendy Spalding-Siracusa from Sills & Betteridge Solicitors will talk about her venture into running marathons, despite her initial hatred of the activity.
Russell said: “I am delighted to have been able to put together a diverse and exciting array of speakers who will be joining us on February 8 from as far as Southampton and Durham.
“It promises to be a highly entertaining and engaging evening and we hope to put something together on an annual basis, so lots to look forward to.”
