As we witness further lock-down measures being lifted, we still remain unsure about how things will plan out over the next 12 – 24 months. While we hoped it would be different, the reality sinks in: Nobody has all the answers. Nobody can – we’ve never been here before.

How will we run our businesses? What constraints will we be under? What demand will there be for what we sell? Why go back to “normal” anyway, why not try to go back to something better?

Over the last few months, we have all re-discovered the importance of peer-to-peer conversation and joint learning. At the Bettany Centre for Entrepreneurship, we will continue to play our role to lead and stimulate these conversations.

On the 7th July, we will be bringing SMEs and subject-matter experts together for an afternoon of fun, peer-to-peer learning and conversations to “unlock” some answers to the above questions.

The afternoon will be packed with knowledge across two slots around the following themes:

  • “Marketing and Sales”
  • “Management and Leadership”
  • “Money”
  • “Strategy”
  • “Me”

After each of the time slots – which are driven by participant input – we will be summarising and sharing the key takeaways from the five parallel sessions. Therefore, you will not only take away the learning from the two sessions that you have participated in, but will also have exposure to all of the understanding from the ten sessions available on the day.

You will also receive access to all recordings after the event, allowing you to re-watch all of the content and discussions.


We have two types of tickets available, a single ticket for individuals and a company ticket which allows you to bring 8 colleagues, customers and friends.

For every ticket sold, we will be inviting participants from the charity sector to join us for free on the day.

Standard tickets are available from the 23rd of June for £50.

Access to all recordings post-event is also included in the ticket price.

Tickets can be purchased until midnight on Sunday 5th July.


Unlock!: The Un-conference truly will be what you make of it. We know that in the BGP universe, we have many great thinkers and problem solvers, and we know that everybody running a business has questions right now. At the university, we have some outstanding academic staff, and we will ask them to join the event and bring their expertise if that’s what people request. So, tell us what you want to discuss, come along on 7 July, and let’s help each other get our businesses ready for the future.
