A stellar line up of speakers include Leeds entrepreneur Georgina Fairhall, founder and CEO of Work and Communications, who is aiming to build a £13m turnover business within three years after raising £1m in angel investment.

Fairhall launched WAC in 2020, one week before a national lockdown, after choosing to step away from a potential law career in order to champion low-paid workers.

She’ll be joined by Linda Broughton, director of technology of Contribly; Chris Iveson, CEO, FourJaw Manufacturing Analytics; Glenn Fletcher, CEO, Tribosonics; and James Ridgeway, CTO, The Curve.
