IoD99 Social networking evening

24 May 2018
IoD East of England

Failure Breeds Success: An inspiring and honest evening with Mike Greene

Under the clear blue skies of Peterborough, the IoD99 were joined by Mike Greene, accomplished and well-known business entrepreneur and angel investor along with many entrepreneurs at the centre of innovation, also known as the Allia Future Business Centre.

The evening started out with people networking, meeting others in the Peterborough area who were just starting out or who had been running their own businesses for a few years. Ideas were shared, challenges spoken about, contacts made over drinks and food.

Mike shared with the IoD99 his honest and refreshing story about his rises and falls in business. Sharing his insights into how failure breeds success and how to pitch, Mike inspired the room. “Some absolute pearls of wisdom on business by Mike Greene” said one entrepreneur.

Our entrepreneurs then bravely went onto Micro-pitch, sharing with us their wonderful businesses and their exciting innovations. Finishing at the end of lots of brilliant pitches business cards were exchanged and contacts were made by many.

“Amazing thing to help a business. With the IoD you make one call and you get an answer within 24 hours. There's lots of help there.” Said Mike Greene, as he shared his experience of the IoD.

Thanks to Mike Greene and the Allia Future Busines Centre for helping make a wonderful and inspiring evening.
