Air-IT were proud to sponsor the second High Growth Summit, held at the Belgrave Rooms in Nottingham on Friday 14th November.

Air IT support high Growth summit

This is the fourth High Growth event that we’ve supported, following our sponsorship of the inaugural Summit in 2013 and two Bite Size events earlier this year.

Billed as ‘The most powerful business summit in the East Midlands’ – the event attracted more than 120 of the region’s fastest growing companies, who gathered to hear ‘game-changing’ high growth strategies and ideas shared by leading business experts and practitioners from across the UK.

Our Marketing Director, Paul Judge comments:

As a fast growing business ourselves, we’re always keen to support these type of events and are delighted to have sponsored the High Growth Summit for a second year running.

The event offered us a fantastic opportunity to meet other like minded businesses who are serious about embracing latest ICT technologies so that they have the right foundations in place to achieve their future ambitions.’

Showcasing our Award Winning Services

As well as sponsoring the event, Air-IT also exhibited alongside our communications division, MBC, showcasing our range of IT, communications and telephony services to aspiring high growth businesses from across the East Midlands.

The event was also attended by a number of our existing clients who we were able to catch up with throughout the day.

Other speakers included recently retired Leicestershire entrepreneur, Brian Stein CBE; the event’s organiser and founder of the High Growth Academy, Stuart Ross; marketing guru and author, Bernie De Souza; and well-known economic analyst, Rob Turner.

Says Paul:

‘Once again the High Growth Summit didn’t fail to disappoint – it was a day packed full with top class speakers, high quality networking and some fantastic exposure for Air-IT / MBC amongst some of the region’s leading high growth companies.

I particularly enjoyed the keynote speech by Will Greenwood about how they transformed a losing England Rugby team into world champions – we hope to be able to use some of the valuable insights, strategies and practical ideas provided within our own business.’
