WITH THANKS TO THREE
We are so thrilled to be welcoming Three Means Business to The Congregation of Inspiration. All the team at Three are brimming with ideas and passion for founders, entrepreneurs and those who are brave enough to chase their dreams.
SHOULD I COME TO THE CONGREGATION OF INSPIRATION?
Yes! Absolutely! You should definitely come. Whether it’s your first time or you are a member of our alumni – the day will truly inspire you, providing real advice and tackling issues at the heart of building a small business. This is all in a new and colourful way, we like to think of it as all the ungoogleable things!
Our conference is for all stages of the journey; if you’re already running a successful creative business or you’re just thinking about starting a small business, then The Congregation of Inspiration is for you.
The commonality for this event is attitude; a colourful and creative approach and mindset. Are you ready to learn and to share what you know? Do you want to be the boss of your own business? Or do you find yourself falling out of love with your own business, confused about which step to take next? Then join us and learn how to do just that. We believe we are stronger together, we believe in community over competition, we think that everyone deserves a tribe of people who have their back. Find your tribe at The Congregation of Inspiration.
I’M NOT A FOUNDER YET! CAN I STILL BUY A TICKET?
Absolutely! Whatever stage of the journey you’re at, you are very welcome to join us. The day will be so beneficial for you, whether you’re already a founder or you’re thinking about becoming one in the future.
WHAT DOES TICKET ENTRY INCLUDE?
Ticket price covers entry to a full day of inspiration, a few surprises along the way, and a fab tote bag full of goodies. We believe the best way to remain creative and inspired is to be fed and watered! Which is why your ticket price also includes Holly & Co-ffee’s, creativi-TEAs and snacks throughout the day, as well as an evening cocktail to toast your new friends with.
We’ll be inviting a whole host of brilliant foodie businesses and creating a mini food market, for you to purchase your lunch from on the day.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We want you to feel your best at The Congregation of Inspiration, so use it as an excuse to wear your most favourite outfit and look your best.
But there is no official dress code, no fashion police on hand, and there are plenty of attendees who don’t worry about their latest look. However, if you want to dress up a little, go for it. Oh, and we love a little bit of glitter!
IS THERE ANYTHING I SHOULD BRING WITH ME?
Business cards will be a great way to connect – the more creative the better!
Please also note that the event will be cashless, so if you want to grab lunch, have a drink at the bar or shop our small business stands, you’ll need to have a card with you.
CAN I GET A PRESS/MEDIA PASS?
We have a very small number of press passes available – if you wish to apply for one, please email [email protected]
HOW DO I BECOME A SPONSOR?
We’re working with some brilliant brands, who believe in the power of small, to bring the Congregation of Inspiration to life. We believe that any sponsor involved must be a perfect match with us and align with our values and ethos. If you think your company fits the bill, then email us at [email protected]
I BOUGHT A TICKET BEFORE CI WAS POSTPONED DUE TO COVID
The Congregation of Inspiration will now be held on Friday 19th March 2021. The location, the beautiful St Mary’s Church, Marylebone, remains the same – as do the timings of the day.
If you have already bought a ticket…
You should have received an email from [email protected] which explains that your ticket will be automatically transferred to the new date, as well as a new ticket confirmation from See Tickets (please make sure you check your spam). If you can’t find these emails, please contact [email protected].
We really hope to see you in March, but if you cannot join us, please email [email protected] to let us know and apply for a refund.
If you booked your ticket(s) on a payment plan, the dates of the final two instalments have been delayed. Your two outstanding payments will now be taken on 30th Sep 2020 and 31st Jan 2021 respectively – rather than the original dates in June and August this year.
