Founder, Kevin Brent, and the wider team will be on hand to share with attendees how they can build a sustainable and profitable business under the BizSmart® umbrella, while helping other business owners reach their full potential.


Kevin will also be signing copies of his debut book, ‘The Entrepreneurial ScaleUp System’ , which reveals how to overcome the challenges of achieving seven-figure business success.

Representing BizSmart®, former The Apprentice winner, Mark Wright, will deliver an inspiring keynote presentation in which he will share his personal journey from backpacker to the boardroom.

Mark will discuss some of the key lessons he has learnt while building his business from the ground up as well as sharing his experiences of peer-to-peer support and practical tips to inspire budding entrepreneurs.

Speaking ahead of the event, Mark Wright said: “I have worked with the BizSmart team for a number of years now and look forward to representing Kevin and the wider team at the Franchise Exhibition Show.

I have always advocated the importance of peer-to-peer working and have seen first-hand the positive impact of the BizSmart model for enabling business owners to achieve sustainable and profitable growth. I will touch on some of these key points during my talk at the Show, while providing insight into my own journey to success.”
