Show Data Systems
From a young age, I knew I wanted to work for myself, but I had no idea how to go about it. After doing a science degree I spent several years travelling before joining my father’s business. His business was selling ID products for the event industry, and I developed a computerised registration system. I was perhaps more ambitious to grow than he wanted, so we agreed that I would run my own business. He gave me my first customer, and the rest is history.
I was thinking of an exit five years before but the business wasn’t big enough. Then, I was invited to a BCMS masterclass.
I was running my own business and had acquired another one en route (Interchange). I was ready for a change. Events are very tiring, and I didn’t have the same level of energy I had 20 plus years ago.
