It will offer a first rate speaker line up. They include Sir Laurie Magnus of Lexicon Partners, Neil Utley from Cox Insurance Holdings and Des Potter from Barclays. Plus, Nigel Barton and Sian Fisher will explain how they secured capital for their recent new business launch, Oxygen, while representatives from venture capitalists Englefield will give the low down on the recent Cox buy-out.
