PEM are proud to be sponsoring the next East Cambs Business Boost, which is now in its third year. The event is run by East Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce and will be held at Littleport Leisure Centre on November 14th. Over 400 businesses from across the region are expected to attend the event’s uniquely blended networking, business showcasing and keynote speakers – this year with the theme of “RISE” to reflect growth and success.
The headline speaker at this year’s event is Levi Roots, who shot to fame after his memorable appearance on Dragons’ Den. He will be speaking to local businesses about his journey from street-vendor to a multi-million-pound brand success. Levi Roots secured investment from Dragons Peter Jones and Richard Farleigh for his brand Reggae Reggae sauce which can now be found in supermarkets across the UK.
Levi said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to speak at East Cambs Business Boost and looking forward to sharing my experiences. The event theme of “Rise” is one that resonates with businesses and entrepreneurs. I’ll be emphasising the importance of putting the best version of yourself into your brand in order to take on challenges and rise to success.”
High-profile speakers alongside Levi will include Google, who will be talking about using digital marketing techniques as well as ex-Special Forces and Counter Terrorism expert, Jem Hills, who will explain how businesses can overcome the challenges they face on their path to achieving success.
Jo Evans, from the Economic Development Team at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “We’re very excited to bring this event back and have such a fantastic line up of inspirational and expert speakers.
“Events like this help us reiterate how East Cambridgeshire is a swiftly growing economic area and we want all local businesses to do as well as possible. Businesses will hear first-hand from entrepreneurs about their paths to success and learn new ways to grow.”
