Innovation Birmingham held the first event in its Inspire Keynote Event series. Jeff Grout, the former business manager to Sir Clive Woodward, addressed a crowd of over 80 entrepreneurs, providing tips and anecdotes on leadership and team building.

He spoke about best practice from the fields of sport, business and the military, and highlighted the key attributes and traits of exceptional leaders.

Innovation Birmingham’s new e4f Inspire programme aims to develop West Midlands businesses and their leaders by offering free access to keynote, workshop and mentoring sessions with top flight business coaches.
