Steven Bartlett to take to stage at The Good Business Festival

Creator of chart-topping podcast The Diary of a CEO Steven Bartlett is set to share his business insight at The Good Business Festival when it arrives in Liverpool tomorrow.

The 29-year-old entrepreneur will share his expertise on the social evolution of business at the festival’s first day on Tuesday 22 March.

In less than a decade, Steven has gone from university dropout to millionaire, taking his social media marketing agency, Social Chain, from his bedroom in Manchester to a globally respected company worth more than $600M on the stock market.

He has gone on to release Sunday Times bestseller Happy Sexy Millionaire and is now considered as one of Europe’s most talented and accomplished young entrepreneurs and philosophical thinkers.

Commissioned by Liverpool City Region Mayor Steve Rotheram, The Good Business Festival will be held in venues across Liverpool city centre from 22 to 24 March, tackling issues such as the climate crisis and helping businesses of all sizes to future-proof themselves.

 

As part of the three-day festival, Steven Bartlett will be at Liverpool Town Hall for a 30-minute chat with host Nick Wallis, followed by a Q&A with audience members.

 

As the country begins to move away from the pandemic, The Good Business Festival is focused on helping companies of every size and interest become more competitive and future-proof themselves by doing the right thing.

 

Now, Steven Bartlett, who co-founded Social Chain at the age of just 21, has thrown his support behind the event in a bid to help drive change.

 

Speaking ahead of his session at The Good Business Festival, he said: “Businesses with good values and ethics at their core are essential in order for our economy to thrive and for future talent to grow.

 

“I’m really excited to be speaking at The Good Business Festival.  I’m passionate about using my influence for good.  Tackling issues such as climate change, social injustice and inequality is incredibly important to me and are matters that are at the forefront of The Good Business Festival.

"It’s not enough to simply to talk about making social change"

“It’s not enough to simply to talk about making social change – we need to take action and, importantly, provide businesses with the support and tools they need in order to play a role in this shift.”

As part of the festival, small businesses will also have the opportunity to get the expert advice and practical tools they need to make a positive impact on their employees, local communities and the planet, as part of The Good Business Festival.

The Good Small Business Programme will take place in the The Good Business Festival (TGBF) Hub venues across the three-day event from 22nd to 24th March, has been created specifically for local SMEs, offering a mixture of networking sessions, ‘business clinics’ and one-to-ones.
