Why a conference?
Guest post by Sarah Pelly
I'm so excited to be able to tell you all about this event. It has been an idea I have been obsessed with for over a year and a half and now and with the help of my partner in crime Kate Holt of Colour Me KT it has now become a reality.
I have been investing in myself and my business for a good few years now, These have included being in Jennifer Allwood's membership coaching group, Rachel Miller's membership group, I have taken Rachel's flagship course Moolah and Stu Mclarens Tribe course and conference. These honestly are just naming a few. It seems I can't get enough information!
Learning new things about the business you are in, is essential to growth. I am a firm believer in this! The opportunities that have opened up because of this learning has been incredible and pushed my business to new places. Including planning this event.
Talking of the event, this is why we decided to go ahead with it because the things we learned, the people we met and the connections we made when attending similar events have been a huge asset to our businesses. We want you to have the same!
Take action for your business.
I have learned to push myself out of my comfort zone! In fact, I’m getting addicted to doing the big scary thing … I have had this event on my mind for years now, I daydreamed about it and tried to concentrate on other things but the dream of it wouldn't go away. Do you ever get that?
So, despite the little voice saying ‘ you can’t pull that off’ I got hold of Kate and together we decided to do the big scary thing and stop dreaming about it and start making it a reality.
You see I’ve learned a very valuable lesson these last couple years and that’s when you take yourself out of your comfort zone and dare to try new things .. AMAZING stuff happens. Essentially I am creating my own reality. It sounds a bit woowoo really but, do you know what I mean? I’m basically getting off my ass and working towards the things I want and making them happen.The Event.
The event will take place at High Leigh conference center in Hoddeson, just North of London. Close to all transport links. It will be a 2-day residential event and the price will include all your meals, accommodation and the event itself. The date of the event 3-5th September 2021
We know that the best way to help you launch your business to the next level is by having us all in one place, at the same time - learning the skills we need to grow! Not to mention the get-together, meeting new people or people we know online only. it's really going to be something to remember!
How do we know this? Because that's exactly the catalyst we used to start growing ours. So, don't miss out! Join the UK's first business conference for Furniture Refinishers, we can't wait to get started!

So why should you come?
Having your own business can at times be lonely, you have no one to help you make the decisions and you have to be pretty self-motivated to get it all done. Lots of us are accidental business owners! we started doing something we loved and soon realised that we have to know how to do all the other things! Social Media, website SEO, running ads, writing blogs! the list goes on and on. The conference will not only do trainings on some of these things but you will be signposted to all the things that matter to you and your biz.
We have guest speakers and a panel of experts lined up for you to 'pick their brains' There will be demos from brands we all know and love. I'm gonna be honest here .. I have been to a few and although the learning is good the only thing you remember is meeting everyone, finding new friends and building lasting relationships. That's what this is about, that's what we want for you!
Don't miss out
We are so looking forward to meeting you all.
Kate and I Relaunched the event last weekend and we have sold just under half of the tickets in one weekend! We are blown away by the response of people wanting to come and brands wanting to sponsor our event. If the brand you represent isn't already a sponsor give them a nudge!
