Getting help with your business can seem extravagant, especially when you’re just starting out, but strengthening your own skills is essential to give your business strength.

As a business owner, you know how to help your client
– you can deliver a solution which brings a smile or a product which wows.

But building a business you’re proud of isn’t just about supporting your customers, it’s also about making sure you have the tools and skills which will help you grow.

Many people running their own business lack confidence and worry they’re winging it. Instead, with the right guidance and support, you can increase your confidence enabling your business to thrive.

I’m Kathryn Slack of Graydon Ventures and the founder of the Ignite Business Speaker Events. I help people find their voice and grow their business
- When you’re struggling with presenting and can’t get your message across

- Or you feel that people aren’t listening

-You're not sure how to present yourself on Zoom/Teams presentations

-You're struggling with putting your story together for a keynote talk

-The idea of presenting and public speaking terrifies you, I can take you from Raw to Refined; Terrified to Terrific.

The path to business growth won’t be the same for everyone, but with my support, you’re not doing it alone.

Building confidence with compassion and skills with support, have Graydon Ventures on your team.

I'd be delighted to speak to you so why not drop me an email or give me a call to find out how I can help you and your business grow?   


Additionally, as the founder and host of the Ignite Business Speaker Events, we do things a bit differently.  There are many networking groups and lots of fantastic businesses helping others with workshops and education but there's nothing that really combines the two PLUS brings you international, national, TEDx speakers and local business speakers.  We are not at home to divas at Ignite but we do absolutely bring you a fantastic range of speakers and subjects, all business based.  What you don't get at Ignite is death by powerpoint (I ban it!!) and absolutely no selling from the stage.  

What you will get from an Ignite event is energised, invigorated, enthused (re-ignited in fact!!), educated, personal development, top ways to improve and grow your business, new contacts, potential new collaborations and an opportunity to showcase your business.  All our speakers spend the day at the event with delegates so everyone has access to all them.  We don't hide them away in a green room out of reach! 

Ignite events are currently online but we'll be back with 3 venue based events in 2021.
