6.30pm-9.30pm at

Wherstead Park, Ipswich


Booking is now open for one of our most popular annual events - Anglia Business Spotlight, this year held in the amazing surroundings of Wherstead Park. We are delighted to welcome back award winning broadcaster (BBC Radio Suffolk), Rachel Sloane, to conduct the interviews.

Have you ever wondered why your business peers started their business and what their biggest successes, challenges and failures were? Join us to find out as Rachel interviews eight lucky ISSBA members about their business.

It’s your chance to learn from people who are like you. Hear them talk about their own business, what gives them the greatest sense of pride and the biggest headaches. You’ll even get chance to ask them questions. Initially each business will be put under the spotlight and interviewed by Rachel. At the end there will be an open forum and you will get the chance to ask your question.

Our lucky panel members are:

  • Alleyn Thomas, Dax & Davies (helping businesses manage energy costs)
  • Jane O'Riordan, Cruse Bereavement Suffolk (provides help and support for children and adults who have been bereaved)
  • Kirsty Brown, Funding Falcon (supplying SMEs with the opportunity to offer their customers finance facilities)
  • Judy Randon, insight6 (customer experience specialists)
  • Laura Morrison, Your Telemarketing (outsources sales support for SMEs)
  • Simba Donald Mlambo, Simba Sports Products (high quality sportswear and equipment)
  • Lee Hammond, Co-op Secure Response (security solutions including fully accredited, state-of-the-art monitoring and alarm receiving centre (ARC))
  • Cathy Shelbourne, Seashell Communications (PR and marketing consultancy specialising in tourism, talking about quirky short stay accommodation and Ipswich as a tourist destination)
