30/11/23 – How Not To Screw Up 2024 – Oxford’s Big Charity Business Breakfast

November 30, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 9:30 am

£25.00 – £100.00

Business is full of twists and turns. Few know this better than Gerald Ratner, who once faced the brunt of a colossal business gaffe but emerged wiser. The Oxford Business Community Network presents an exclusive opportunity: breakfast, networking, and tales of business resilience from Ratner himself. Elevate your 2024 strategy, and stay for a Q&A session teeming with insights. Be part of this transformative morning, all while supporting Sobell House Hospice and SpecialEffect.

Join us Thursday, 30th November, bright and early at 7am for prime business networking, with a delectable breakfast commencing at 7:45am. As you enjoy your meal, Gerald Ratner will regale us with tales of his illustrious career — including rebounding from a notorious business stumble in the ‘90s where he reportedly lost hundreds of millions overnight. His journey, filled with hard-learned lessons, is sure to inspire. By 9:30am, as breakfast winds down, you’re welcome to stay on and seize the opportunity to engage directly with Ratner in a candid Q&A. Dive deep into the theme: ‘How Not To Screw Up 2024’.

At the Oxford Business Community Network, we champion every Oxfordshire business, and we’re committed to making our events welcoming for everyone.

In the spirit of giving, our charity event features three ticket tiers, starting at a modest £25. Every penny raised benefits Sobell House and SpecialEffect, so we kindly ask you to consider the most generous ticket option within your means.

For business owners, access to Gerald Ratner’s invaluable insights offers unparalleled value, confidently exceeding a £60 value proposition.
