Festival of Business 2014

Rebecca Burn-Callander outlines details of the Telegraph’s fourth Festival of Business which takes place in London on Tuesday, November 11.

Ms Burn-Callander describes the festival as a showcase event for ambitious high-growth firms and a celebration of the vital role these firms play in generating economic growth.

Exporting will be a key theme of the conference as firms face up to the Government’s challenge of doubling sales to overseas markets to £1trn by 2020, adds Ms Burn-Callander.

We Say: There is a measure of irony in being told of an event and its date by someone whose name sounds like “burn calendar”.

We’re excited to see that the Festival of Business will be taking place at the Brewery, where we had our Winter Party last December. It certainly made a good impression on us – and, we hope, vice versa – so we trust that the Telegraph’s event will have similar success in blending business with pleasure.

It’s just a shame that the Festival of Business isn’t open to many smaller businesses i.e. those whose turnover hasn’t reached £5m. It’s always worth asking if bigger is better. Which is precisely what we’ve done in one of our new Team Q&A videos.
