The Business Show at Excel (Custom House in Docklands, on the DLR, not far from City Airport or Canning Town) has a great line up today in the Seminar Halls. Of particular note are :
Rachel Elnaugh, who was on the Dragon's Den for two seasons
Gurdas Sidhu , a Forex trader who shares some thoughts on making a secondary living from currency trading.
James Caan, who as most know by now, built up Hamilton Bradshaw and Humana International from scratch and sold them for millions.
So, I would encourage people to visit this very friendly show, where you can soak up ideas that are developing in the new Digital Economy, about building websites, Search Engine Optimisation (so more people in your niche market find you online), Business Plans, Book-keeping and Secretarial support (Red Bus, Yvonne Cherrington), Company Formation, protectig Intellectual Property, finding investors or contacts. Angels Den, Midas Touch, Rockstar Group are worth visiting.
For those who may be interested in Sir Richard Branson's right hand man who helped him launch several ventures, the BSF Group is definitely worth a visit. Brad has written his book, which he says has sold 15,000 copies. This one is for the ambitious ones, worth an autographed copy.
Kind regards, and see you there.
