One-day conference explores opportunities for independent directors.

‘The Great British Workforce Revolution conference’ hosted by Russam GMS in partnership with Angel News returns on 4th June 2014 after the success of the inaugural event last year.

This year’s headline speakers are Gerald Ratner, former CEO of Ratner’s Jewellers and Simon Woodroffe, creative of YO! Sushi.
The event will bring together well known speakers, economists and influencers in the senior executive market to uncover everything people need to know about working as an independent director.

The theme of this year’s conference is the ‘changing business landscape’ and how it impacts independent directors including interim managers, contractors, freelancers, NEDs, business angels and entrepreneurs.

Sessions will focus on the many opportunities for independent directors to win elite position in quoted and unquoted companies, look at the secret world of MBOs and MBIs, debate the changing nature of retirement in a session entitled, ‘we can’t, mustn’t and won’t retire,.’ and review how the web and crowd sourcing is killing traditional head hunting.

Charles Russam, Chairman of Russam GMS commented: “The business landscape is changing beyond recognition with nearly half the UK labour market now working as what we term ‘self-drive workers’. With the economy finally growing, there will be increased business opportunities for independent workers that we want to explore in our conference.”
“We are excited to partner again with Angel News and welcome two of the UK’s most well-known entrepreneurs to share their inspirational business stories with our delegates.”

Modwenna Rees-Mogg, CEO and Founder of Angel News said: “The event is a must-attend event for anyone currently working in this space or thinking about doing so and we hope to learn a great deal more about the freelance, contract and interim sector by the end of the day.”

Tickets are priced at £99 and can be purchased online.
