The 2020 Bryanston Business Conference



The 2020 Bryanston Business Conference will provide pupils from schools and sixth form colleges from across Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon, with a unique opportunity to feed off the energy and passion of visionary business leaders from many sectors of industry.

Budding entrepreneurs will have the chance to develop their business ideas and skills alongside respected and inspirational mentors from the world of industry. In previous years, mentors have included Julia Hailes MBE, Sebastian Conran, Claire Dresser, Sophie Harley, Justin Urquhart-Stewart, Adam Greenwood, Tom Honey and Alison Kyle. Many previous mentors will be returning for the 2020 business conference at Bryanston alongside other business leaders from a diverse range of industries.

The conference comprises a series of workshops with the mentors working with teams of pupils to develop new ethical business products or services. Each mentor's selected team is asked to give a short presentation to all the other conference participants and the event finishes with an audience vote for their favourite idea. 

Any school keen for their pupils to attend next year’s 2020 Bryanston Business Conference should register their interest by contacting Amanda Lovejoy at
