Why book a ticket?
As well as talks, workshops and curious conversations, we have spaces for you to learn the way you want to learn. InnerRebel2023 is about choices. We don’t want anyone to feel excluded or uncomfortable so if you don’t want to network, that’s fine – we have a quiet room for you to reflect. If you don’t like the sound of the workshops, you’ll have the opportunity to create your own. If you need so time out we have a rooftop terrace where you can soak in the Manchester views whilst listening to our event DJ.
As well as all that, we guarantee you will:
1. Gain new insights and ideas from experts outside of your industry.
2. Network with likeminded individuals who will broaden your horizons.
3. Discover new ways of thinking to apply to your professional network.
4. Step out of your comfort zone and be challenged.
5. Be inspired to question the status quo and think differently.

After what we’ve experienced over the last couple of years, I want to create something that helps light the fire in our bellies again, gives us inspiration, brings excitement and also build a community of like-minded folks so we can continue the conversations beyond the event. It’ll be an event that will help you push the boundaries and give you the support you need to future-proof your skills as a leader.
Over the years I’ve been frustrated at conferences that never had representation on stage. So, for me it was critically important that the speakers were not only representative but also from a range of industries. As much as I love learning from fellow practitioners it’s imperative that we widen our horizons and learn good practice from other areas of business.
