Theo Paphitis SBS Winners Event 2017

February saw me taking a trip to the ICC in Birmingham for the annual SBS Winners event hosted by Theo Paphitis.  This year there were over 600 people there – all winners or a winners “plus one” and there was such a buzz in the room.  The day consists of networking along with some formal sessions.  The formal sessions included a talk from Theo where he discussed the impact of the Brexit Vote and his thoughts on how it will affect small and large businesses over the coming years.  There was then a talk from an amazing former SBS winner Jodine Boothby who is the inventor of the Gummy Glove (and now many other products) and is known as GummeeMummy!  Jodine gave a brutally honest and very amusing talk about how Gummee Mummee came to be, and the trials and tribulations she experienced along the way and it was clear how her passion and enthusiasm has helped Jodine make such a success of her business. 

The final session was also fantastic! Theo hosted a “Question Time” session with two special guests, John Mills who founded the business JML and fellow Dragons Den colleague Deborah Meaden!  WOW, how fantastic to listen to three highly successful people and hear them answering some very pertinent questions.  I was particularly inspired by Deborah Meaden who spoke very candidly about an aspect of her personality that had caused her some difficulties in business.  

The day ended with new winners having their photo taken with Theo…. (say Cheese!) and of course the fabulous goody bags filled with all sorts of brilliant gifts from the SBS Sponsors who include Rymans, DHL, Robert Dyas, iLaw, 123-Reg, and Red Letter Days. 

As you can see I am a huge fan of SBS and would really urge you to take a look at the website and why not get entering!  All you need to do is send a tweet to Theo between 5.30pm and 7.30pm on a Sunday evening and if he chooses your tweet to ReTweet you could be at this great event next year!
