Social businesses play a big part in many different industries and sectors, including tourism. During the conference, you’ll discover how several social enterprises in North Wales have attracted visitors to such a beautiful part of the world.

Tech for good

Our fist master-class will look at the use of ‘tech for good’ – how digital technology can be central to your business – and reaching customers online.

Leadership succession

Every social enterprise needs a strong leader, but what will happen when yours moves on? Another of the day’s masterclasses can help. There will be a session on business succession; helpful for those who might want to hand their business over to their employees one day.

Winning contracts

Get better at winning business contracts! The tendering process can be difficult and stressful. We have a masterclass to help advise you. There will also be a session on how to maximise, multiply and measure your organisation’s social value.

Keynote Speakers

Sam’s unique take on business is explained and explored in his critically acclaimed book ‘Be More Pirate’. Join us on the to see if ‘being more pirate’ could help keep your company afloat and set you on a course to success.

If you ever needed proof that anything is possible, come to the conference and hear the story of Lowri Morgan. From ultra marathons in the Amazon and Arctic, to being a mum and TV presenter, Lowri will not fail to inspire you.
