Expert pair boost the National Franchise Exhibition

When The National Franchise Exhibition returns to Birmingham’s NEC in February with the ever popular Growing Your Own Business seminars, there will be two exciting speakers ready to share their experiences with visitors.

Steve Feeney, founder of Essential SEO and Peter Higgs, who created PGH Pest Control will share the ups and downs of their careers to date.

Steve joined the corporate world as a young man, and set up his first business with over 70 staff and a turnover of £36million. In the past twelve months Steve’s company has grown by 80 per cent and he is happy to be heading a small team of experts offering a genuinely high quality product in the search engine optimisation industry.

Despite an unsettled upbringing, and a difficult youth Peter now owns his own pest control company with five members of staff. Started in 2009 with help from the Prince’s Trust, PGH’s success has been built on word of mouth and referral systems and continues to expand.

Both speakers will offer top tips and advice and answer questions from their audience about how starting up a business can bring great success.
