Securing Corporate Clients

Now, if by attending the event you ended up building just ONE powerful relationship with a corporate company or partnering with other like-minded professionals, or speak with an investor

That could potentially increase your income, raise your visibility and increase your social mobility?

Would the event be worth attending?

I don’t know about you, but this seems like a no-brainer to me.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are a service provider or even a product based business owner who has a desire to work with corporates in some capacity but needs the process on how to do it, then this event is for you. We have training workshops on corporate readiness and dealing with procrastination. You will be in a room of professionals and corporate decision makers.

Nope – we can’t do that as we don’t know what vacancies are available. Our job is to provide access, put you in a room to build relationships, to learn what it really takes to be corporate ready, to network with professionals and to leave with a plan of action on your next steps.

The speakers are there for all of us. You will not be able to have a 1-2-1 meeting with the corporates unless this is arranged ahead of time through consultation. There is a meet the buyer opportunity that will take place during the Roundtable sessions. Each invited corporate will have a table where you can ask them direct questions. You can move between different rooms so you can get to hear from at least two different corporates if there is availability

Unfortunately this is unlike other events where you can pitch to speak. We have hand selected all our speakers based on their experience with corporations and securing contracts without tendering.

Yes if exhibition spots are still available, please visit the Why exhibit page and follow the instructions there.

Well here lies the problem. When we were recommended speakers for this event based on their experience, most recommendations were men in the field even when they came recommended by women. The event is here to help change that. Next year… let’s have more women speakers please!
