A business event like no other, Thrive Wellington is everything you ever wanted to know about ambition, growth and all-round business success. On the 24th of November, 2006 Thrive Wellington is back, bigger and better than ever, with a revitalised brand and an action-packed programme of practical advice from world class entrepreneurs, sporting greats and our best creative talent.

Thrive Wellington is the big day out for business people like you, staged in a unique theatrical setting, with a full buffet lunch, trade show and post-event networking function. If you haven’t experienced Thrive Wellington, brace yourself, this is no normal business event - it’s a business show!

  • Learn from the best about business strategy, branding, commercial creativity and innovation
  • Find out what makes other successful people tick
  • Get practical advice and strategies you can take back to the workplace
  • Be motivated and inspired to go for growth in your enterprise
  • Recharge your ambition to succeed
  • Network with 1000+ other motivated business owners and executives


  • Ok, because I have some stuff to do this morning I will be in for the late morning sessions and do a bit of networking.

    Thanks to Anthony at Todd Energy for the tip!
