The host of keynote speakers organised for this event certainly is impressive and broad ranging. From award winning Island based eco clothing brand Rapanui, to Ian Jenkins of the Isle of Wight Chamber Of Commerce. 

With other notable local business people having a big global impact include Laura Husson, Dale Howarth (pictured above) and Dee Becker. They have also pulled in international keynote speakers such as accredited author and speaker Kerrie Phipps and one of the UKs biggest Twitter authorities Mark Shaw, who is responsible for the fastest growing social community movement #TagTribes. 

This is a full day event 08:30 – 17:00 hosted at Cowes Yacht Haven with 8 confirmed keynotes, lunch and refreshments.
