Talk 1
"Winning Tenders"
After spending 20+ years in the IT industry, in 2013 Richard established Impart (impart.co.uk), who specialise in helping organisations win tenders and get onto framework contracts.
Within his Tech Wednesday talk, Richard will give an introduction and insight into tendering, and how you go about giving yourself the best possible chance of being successful.

Talk 2
"Getting To “Yes”…Subtle strategies to getting support for your business"
Davies Okeowo is a strategic thinker, trainer, and entrepreneur whose interests revolve around helping micro businesses grow, and influencing the growth of startup ecosystems.
Growing a business is largely dependent on getting people to say “Yes”. In this talk, you’ll learn the subtle strategies that you can deploy to get Investors, Customers, Strategic Partners, & Talent (among other) to say “Yes” to your proposition.

Talk 3
RJF was founded by Rob Jones, an entrepreneur who has grown and sold businesses, he is now a specialist in helping start-ups.
Having been finance director for some of the world’s biggest companies, Rob started RJF to put his years of high-level experience to work for businesses across Greater Manchester.
At the very least a Founder should understand how a Profit & Loss works.
That simply means “here’s where we’re making money, here’s where we’re spending it, and here’s how much we’re making (or losing).”
If you didn’t understand a balance sheet, or complicated projections, or anything else, you’d at least have to understand where the money came in, and where it went out.
Rob meets very few Founders who know any of this. In this talk, he will outline the key 5 numbers every founder should know about their business.
