Top young entrepreneurs to speak at The National Franchise Exhibition

Jamie Dunn, who was named in the Top 20 Young People in The World, will join Neil Clough, star of the BBC’s The Apprentice, as keynote speakers at the Growing Your Own Business Conference, an element of The National Franchise Exhibition, which takes place on 3 & 4 October at the NEC in Birmingham.

In his keynote presentation, Dunn, shareholder in global education consultancy Spark Global Education, will discuss his career, which involved starting in enterprise at age 12 and working with hugely successful clients, Aston Villa, Ikea and Asda.

Star of BBC’s The Apprentice in 2013, Clough will also deliver a keynote presentation titled, ‘Sales and motivation with Neil Clough’. His inspirational talk will explore his experience of reaching the final five in Britain’s most popular entrepreneurial television show and how he finds the silver lining in every cloud, no matter how difficult or demanding the situation may be.

Clough now runs his own business, NWC Sales Consultancy & Training in Hale, Cheshire, and is Director of mobile advertising app My Travel Pal.

Neil received high praise from Lord Sugar’s aides during the TV show. They praised him for coming a long way from being the ‘backseat driver’ at the start of the series to becoming confident in the boardroom. He was praised by Nick Hewer as being, “truly a man to put your money on.”

The Growing Your Own Business Conference is designed to inspire budding entrepreneurs to take their first steps on their own journey or develop their own business even further.
