Apprentice winner announced as keynote at Event Buyers Live

The winner of The Apprentice 2014, Mark Wright, has been announced as a keynote speaker for Event Buyers Live – the anticipated event industry networking and business event.

Wright, CEO of digital marketing agency, Climb Online, which he launched with Lord Alan Sugar’s backing after winning The Apprentice in 2014, will be bringing his business wisdom to Event Buyers Live, revealing all about his Apprentice experience and the secrets of digital marketing.

Live events professionals at the industry event will be able to join Wright and hear first-hand about his journey to entrepreneurial success – from winning The Apprentice to turning over £1.7 million in his first year of trading.

Having recently entered its second year of trading, Climb Online employs more than 30 staff members across two office locations, and has secured more than 230 clients. Wright will discuss how he has achieved such growth in less than two years, and how he has managed life at the helm of a growing start-up with a renowned public and business figure as mentor.

During his keynote speech, Wright will provide advice for securing funding and investment, as well as address how great digital marketing coupled with an amazing online presence can hugely transform events and business. Famed for his determination and personable nature, Wright’s keynote is not one to be missed.

Neil Fagg, event manager at Event Buyers Live, commented: “We’re so excited to have worked with KruTalent International to host Mark at Event Buyers Live. He has so many stories to share, and a lot of wisdom to impart. He’ll be talking about his personal journey on The Apprentice as well as experiences of business mentoring.

“Mark’s presence also demonstrates the importance that Event Buyers Live places on the sharing of ideas and business practice, across sectors and industries, and not just our own.

“We look forward to welcoming Mark to Event Buyers Live in February and am sure that our delegates will be inspired by his stories too – we consider him well and truly hired.”

Now in its fourth year, Event Buyers Live will host live events professionals at Hilton Heathrow Terminal 5 Hotel, London on February 8 and 9, 2017. Event Buyers Live provides a bespoke business and networking opportunity between prominent event organisers and suppliers.
