Keynote Speakers

Helen Lacey - 10.10

Helen Lacey is a self-confession shopaholic with a huge shoe addiction ! When not shopping or going to the gym Helen owns a Multi-site Multi million pound business called Red Berry Recruitment Ltd which she founded in 2007.

With various Board Director Roles and Non-Executive Positions and being cited as one of the Top 50 South West Entrepreneurs in the Business Leader Magazine, Helen is a driven, dynamic individual with a zest for life , though for many years was self-doubting and self-deprecating.

She says that finding Recruitment and starting her business was what she was meant to do and has given her the confidence she has today.
Helen will talk about the challenges she has faced, from a child, through to teenager and current working life, that, for many would say " It is what it is" But for Helen, her determined nature, natural enthusiasm for life has always taught her to believe in yourself and that no matter what happens you can get through it and it will make you stronger

Croz Crossley - 13.10

Croz has a wealth of experience to share after having been in business for over 50 years. Although there were many successes,he says that most of his wisdom and knowledge comes from the things that went wrong during that time.

After one very bad situation about 25 years ago he lost everything and after that he really struggled trying to get back in 5 minutes what had taken many years to accumulate. He also at this time learnt that you never make good decisions when you are stressed.

That is when he set about studying how powerful our mind is and how much control we have over what happens in our life.

Whether it be business or personal life understanding and using these teachings can change everything.

Croz has spoken all over the world including Australia, America, South Africa, Thailand, France, Spain, Bali and many other places, sharing the stage with some great speakers and celebrities in the self development world.

Croz has been featured on many radio and TV shows and is often sought out to comment on subjects appertaining to how our mind works.


Pippa Hodge - 14.15

Pippa Hodge is a business woman and mum of two, born and bred in Somerset.

Having been in the world of business development for over 10 years, she now works with top entrepreneurs and clients include Costa, JCB and the NHS, as well as having recently started up her own business and brand, FancyPants!

Recently interviewed on radio as one of 5 ‘Women on their A game', Pippa doesn't believe in excuses. If you want something badly enough, you can make it work.

Surrounded by some of the best business brains in the UK on a daily basis, she will be sharing some of the lessons she has learned from working with a top UK entrepreneur and starting her own biz!
