In November 2015, a brand new initiative was launched to give sales and marketing advice to Hertfordshire businesses. Ambition2016 was launched last year as Ambition2015, it was a sell-out event which earned a lot of praise: “Thank you to @AmbitionBrox15 for a fantastic day yesterday. Full of inspiration to help business thrive in our local community”.

This November, we have a stunning line-up of motivational speakers specialising in sales and marketing. There will be a wide range of companies represented at the event giving an added networking element to put everything you learn into practice! Book now….
