Mundays Business Forum aims to bring together business owners and executives in an informal environment, to learn from each other and exchange ideas and solutions to some of the challenges that you face. The Forum takes place three times a year with a sit down buffet lunch, guest speaker and an open “Forum Discussion”. Our speakers come from a wide range of backgrounds and businesses, and each with an interesting story to tell. They have all been picked to provide ideas and inspiration to take back to your own business.
Our March 2020 Event will hear from Steve Coburn, Managing Director of projectfive where he’ll enthrall us with the story behind founding projectfive, the challenges he’s had in running his own business and also what he loves about being a business owner. A story that is bound to be interesting and inspiring for any entrepreneur, current or future!
GUEST SPEAKER – Steve Coburn, Managing Director – projectfive
Steve was previously a Sports Centre Manager, a Weatherman, a Marketing Manager and an IT Manager. He’s worked for companies such as Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, The Met Office, and Andersens.
He’s also the founder and inspiration behind projectfive, which he set up in 2002 in the wake of the Enron scandal (projectfive was responsible for recovering the electronic data from the UK that helped with the investigations). Since then, Steve has grown projectfive into the award-winning business, and wonderful place to work, that we all love. And, in recognition, he was voted SME Director of the Year for London and the South East, by the Institute of Directors in 2016.
Steve won the Offshore Powerboat Formula II World Cup in 2000, which included winning the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes race – one of the oldest running sporting events. He married both his Scout Leader’s daughter and his band’s Lead Singer (yes, it’s the same person!), and has two children – Alexia and Nathan.
