Penny Power OBE, April 10

Penny PowerWith the First Friday of April having this year been taken by a historically far more influential organisation (the Church!), First Friday has for one month only become SECOND Friday!!

And with good reason…

We are very pleased to be able to welcome Penny Power OBE as our speaker on Friday April 10.   

Penny is one of the UK’s most inspirational female entrepreneurs and a highly engaging and sought after speakers.

In 1998, long before Facebook existed, Penny and husband Thomas Power conceived, planned, and set up the world’s first online business network, Ecademy.

Penny is driven by her desire to connect business people for the common good and one of her primary focuses is The Digital Youth Academy about which she says:

“There are times in economic history when innovation and creativity combine to advance and progress society. We are now facing a period in history when two generations can meet and together create the most incredible shift in society and business.”

“I believe that our youths are a way of fueling the economy and helping every company in the UK become a ‘digitally thinking’ company. My proudest days are those when we hear that another young person has found employment inside a small company to help them grow through building them a website through to helping them build their followers and manage their SEO.

Come and join us for lunch on April 10th and hear what Penny Power has to say.
