FOR the fifth consecutive year, Brighton Chamber organised the Brighton Summit – a packed day of inspiring speakers, interactive workshops, great food and plenty of quality networking.

More than 300 people from the city’s business community turned out to enjoy an exciting line-up of activities throughout the day.

In response to certain current affairs and the rocky business landscape, the theme for this year centred around embracing the unknown.

Businesses discussed their challenges and shared knowledge, learning from the programme of expert speakers and workshop leaders.

Daisy Cresswell, co-founder of Liberty842, said: “I think the event is one of the best I have ever been to due to the complete lack of ‘corporateness’. Couple that with the extremely high calibre of attendees who really care about their area of expertise. I am following up over 35 leads with gusto.”

Vikki Haffenden, of Brighton University, said: “The food was delicious, and such a nice change from the usual conference fare.”

Emma Cleary, of Ten2Two Sussex, said: “A slicker, more content laden event could not be found anywhere – indeed it gets better year by year.”
