Keynote Speaker

We all like the idea of having a business, not having anyone to answer to and being financially free. However, 99% of people don’t like ‘doing’ the ‘doing part’. Thomas Bunday was able to do this at the age of 26; having successfully set up 3 businesses alongside a property portfolio worth well over £1 million. Thomas will discuss the methods he used to accomplish in a short time frame, along with explaining what it takes to stand out and actually get things done as appose to just thinking about getting things done. After spending 2018 on the well-known show ‘The Apprentice’, Thomas is definitely one to know how to stand out from the crowd.
