What's the difference between a Business Owner and a Business Leader?

That's not the start of a joke, we promise - but it is the premise behind Platform ExO.

In an increasingly uncertain economy, there is more pressure than ever for those at the helm to make the right decisions, build and manage the most effective teams, and establish themselves as key persons of influence.

Leadership doesn't come with a manual, so we've brought together well-respected industry experts to take a close look at every facet of what it takes to be the best.

Who is this conference for?

The game changers, the innovators, the pioneers.

If you're a North West Business Owner, with an interest in self-reflection and improvement and looking to make the most of their business, this is for you.

Plus, as sponsors, BIMA members get 50% off the £40 ticket price. Contact rachel@bima.co.uk for discount code.
