Brighton Summit: Crack on – a quarter of total tickets already sold out

Brighton Chamber has launched Brighton Summit, the seventh annual conference for everyone in and around Brighton who wants to evolve and grow their business. Super Earlybird tickets sold out in record time and a quarter of the total available tickets have already been snapped up for the event, due to be held on Friday 11 October.

The theme this year is ‘Crack on’. It’s all too easy to carry on doing things the same way you always have, to hesitate and make excuses for putting things off. It’s harder to drive forward, and, if necessary, make changes, especially in such uncertain times. But success in business often means overcoming your doubts, ignoring the “what ifs” and just cracking on and doing it.

What “it” is depends on you, your business and your aims. It might be radical or it might be subtle. It could mean taking risks; it could equally mean sticking to your principles. It could be about having a vision; it could be about focusing on people. You can fill in the blanks, but the Summit should give you the motivation to make it happen.

Whatever your interpretation, the determination to get on and make things happen is what makes a business stand out, survive and thrive.

This year’s Brighton Summit: Crack On, is about taking your business, or work, by the scruff of its neck, deciding what you want and going for it.

At the 2017 Brighton Summit, attendees faced uncertainty and ‘Embraced the Unknown’. Last year it was about exploring new ways of working and choosing to ‘Look Up’. In 2019 get inspired to Crack on, step up and get your business moving.

Stephen Boobyer from World of Books joins Brighton Summit speakers

Stephen Boobyer is CEO of the World of Books group in Goring-by-Sea. In just ten years, the business has grown from a start-up into one of the largest sellers of used and rare books in the world and one of the fastest growing companies in UK. World of Books is a perfect example of the circular economy in action. Over 70 million books each year are reused and recycled and in 2013, Ziffit.com was launched to purchase books directly from the public. World of Books has featured in the Sunday Times Fast Track, the LSEG ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain’, and was named Recycler of the Year in 2016 and received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2017. 

Stephen’s session is called ‘Reuse, recycle and grow’.

He will talk through the World of Books story, from the beginnings of an idea to a start-up in a bedroom, to one of the UK’s fastest-growing businesses with 600 employees – all in ten years. There have been challenges and headwinds, inevitably, but Stephen will show how management techniques and strategies have turned them into opportunities that have helped shape the group’s future. The vision, for Stephen and the team, is for to become the leading seller of used books globally, while helping people to reuse and recycle for less through innovation and technology.
