Oxford Times: It’s who and what you know
A recent Oxford Times article (published 26 May 2016) highlighted some key speakers from this year’s fantastic programme of high-profile presentations. Venturefest Oxford 2016, set to take place on 29 June at the King’s Centre in Osney Mead Oxford, will host TV Apprentice finalist star, Bianca Miller; Global Head of Brand & Managing Director of Virgin Enterprises, Lisa Thomas well-known entrepreneur and broadcaster, Mark Stevenson; and CEO of Kintish Networking Skills, Will Kintish, amongst others. Rolling out an expanded programme of more than 20 interactive, practical business training sessions, the event aims to empower entrepreneurs with skills and knowledge in areas ranging from cyber security and digital marketing to intellectual property and the Internet of Things. Look out for the onsite mini-studio run by Oxford Digital Media and the highly anticipated EU debate about the In/Out campaign. The longstanding funding session akin to Dragons Den will feature throughout the day. And delegates can take advantage of our new Get Connected online networking system coming soon in June. Lynn Shepherd, Executive Chair of Venturefest Oxford is quoted as saying:
Innovation is a powerful catalyst in driving economic growth and Venturefest Oxford plays a critical role in shaping the future of high-tech in the county. This year’s programme is set to be the best ever, with a great line-up of dynamic speakers and a range of sessions designed to stimulate innovation, support entrepreneurship and broker investment.
