Apprentice winner confirmed for Sandy Park exhibition

Posted by Bev on 28 October, 2014

Organisers of Sandy Park’s flagship business exhibition, b2b@SandyPark, are pleased to confirm a packed line-up of seminars at the event.

Those attending b2b@SandyPark will be spoilt for choice as 15 speakers have been confirmed for the exhibition, which is on Wednesday, November 5th (10am – 5pm) at the recently reopened venue.

Headline speakers include Yasmina Siadatan, winner of ‘The Apprentice’ 2009 and Michael Wilkinson, Investment Manager of Exeter-based crowdfunding enterprise Crowdcube.

Speaking about their involvement at b2b@SandyPark, Yasmina said: “It’s an honour to have been invited to b2b@SandyPark and I look forward to promoting the work The Start Up Loans Company have done so far to help kick-start over 20,000 businesses throughout the UK.”

Yasmina will be discussing her career since The Apprentice, which has seen her work for Lord Sugar before becoming Creative Director of ‘The Start-Up Loans Company’. This is a government funded scheme which has provided advice, business loans and mentoring to over 20,000 businesses.

Michael Wilkinson will be talking about Investment Crowdfunding and how Crowdcube has fared in the unique marketplace of crowdfunding, including some case studies of businesses they have helped fund.

The schedule also includes talks from Exeter Chiefs’ coach Rob Hunter, media professional Marc Astley, business consultant Chris Lorimer, Active Devon’s James Bogue, The C Group’s Sharky Ward and Devon County Council’s Rosie Bates. A full seminar schedule is available here.

The day, which has secured support from Exeter City Council plus local media The Exeter Daily, Radio Exe and the Exeter Express & Echo, will start with a b2b breakfast, featuring speaker Mark Evans-Martin. The exhibition will be open from 10am and seminars will begin at 11am.

Although the b2b@SandyPark programme is filling up quickly, there are still opportunities for stand packages.
