Like Minds is a global thought leadership platform delivering world-class events on business development, knowledge and insight aimed at entrepreneurs and business leaders to engage, stimulate and empower them to become global businesses of the future.
We were founded in August 2009 amidst the Social Media boom in the UK, where communication was drastically changing, and knowledge was overflowing – creating new opportunities for growing businesses. Our mission is to curate a platform where participants can meet fellow like minds to inspire and help each other on a level that is accessible both financially and structurally.
We are committed to low admission costs, discounts for students and the unemployed, empowering young minds, working with local organisations, profiling like-minded endeavours, and providing access not just to ideas, but to the actions needed to make those ideas happen.
Our annual flagship event is the Like Minds “Innovation & Ideas Festival”. Through insights, immersive workshops and our famous lunches, an average 300 participants engage with each other, discussing new ideas and forging new connections to help make those ideas happen. We now reach over 11M people on social platforms and via our live stream when we hold an “Ideas Festival” event.
Our international events focus on targeted topics with a maximum of 300 participants in attendance. They are an opportunity for international communities to collaborate with us in addressing a subject in depth pertinent to the local community. We return to cities each year to grow the Like Minds community and continue to build our online resource of content, including all the 20-minute keynote HD videos archived on our digital platform.
Like Minds Summits.
After each international “Ideas Festival” the Like Minds Summit curates thought leaders curated from our speakers at the previous days’ event who join a roundtable discussion with other experienced leaders in their field at a luxury venue. Held alongside the Like Minds “Ideas Festival”, they provide participants the opportunity to collaborate and network at the highest level. These are invite-only events, supported by an international business sponsor.
Like Minds Masterclasses.
Creating a new kind of learning environment, the Like Minds Masterclasses were born out of the demand to provide in-depth training in specialist subjects. These run primarily in Exeter and London, focusing on developing a “Social Business” strategy and complement the Like Minds U training programme.
Like Minds U are in-depth learning programs, taught by our partner Propelia, to help individuals or small businesses understand thought leadership frame-works and tool-sets for you to help develop you and your business profile.
