About the Talk.
Oli Barrett MBE co-founded StartUp Britain, Tenner, social innovation agency Cospa and Speednetwork the Globe.
“The man who has made it his mission in life to make others think about becoming entrepreneurs…Barrett is almost as well known in tech circles for his absolutely terrible jokes as his endless enthusiasm for inspiring others.” Evening Standard
Cospa, helps companies and causes to create and grow ventures which make money and make a difference. A good example of this is by helping over 2,000 young people to fix their own youth clubs, with Wickes, the DIY chain.
Speednetwork the Globe connects the international business community to unlock opportunities, increase understanding and encourage collaboration.
The man who introduced Speednetworking to the UK is a force to be reckoned with. The “most connected man in Britain” has a passion for creating “quality connections” between people.” The Independent
