Roy-BW-Small_12A new event promoting enterprise in Wales is taking place at Cardiff’s City Hall this month on 14th November. The event is supported by the Welsh Government, and organiser Walter May has extended an open invitation to Welsh entrepreneurs. The event, which was developed from an idea in the Entrepreneurs Wales group on LinkedIn, has been specifically designed for Welsh Entrepreneurs to develop new links with support structures from private companies, the government and academia. At the event there will be the opportunity to learn and share experiences of entrepreneurial success and failure across the globe, and what Wales can learn from other dynamic areas of the world. The key note speaker is Julie Meyer MBE, founder of Ariadne Capital. Also in attendance is the BBC Wales at Work radio show, who will be broadcasting live from the event, as well as some key guest speakers who will be offering their expertise by holding enterprise workshops. Wolfestone director Roy Allkin is among the speakers for the event, speaking alongside leadership consultant Joy Ogeh-Hutfield from Lamajo about the value of investing in employees. They will be in good company alongside Sarah Dickins from Good Evening Wales, who is also the first Welsh Economics Correspondent, Paul Ragan of Secret Millionaire fame and Bruce Dickinson of Cardiff Aviation and rock band Iron Maiden. Roy Allkin, current IWA Entrepreneur of the Year, thinks events like this are essential for promoting new business in Wales. “The entrepreneurial spirit here is strong, and Wales is home to some amazing talents and skills. Events like this help provide the platform and framework for Wales to develop a progressively dynamic environment for entrepreneurs – and it’s something I’m proud to be a part of” Organiser Walter May believes the event can raise the aspirations of Welsh business. “There are many fantastic businesses in Wales, selling amazing products and services. The vision of the event is to show Welsh businesses that they should look beyond our borders, and shoot for the stars“ As well as offering a platform for aspiration Mr May states the event will give entrepreneurs the tools to go away and make a difference: “I want people to leave the event with action points to go and implement and execute new practical strategies from the event. There will be a lot of bigger picture discussion, but also an emphasis on executable and successful tactics that will help people grow their business.” After a huge surge in interest, the organisers are already planning future events..
