This is the conference programme for the Startup Career Launchpad Conference on April 18-19th 2013 in London, that I organised for NACUE. Featuring 70+ speakers, a range of partners and press, and 350+ attendees over two conference days, it is the biggest event I have personally ever organised, and also the biggest event NACUE has ever been associated with in the five years since its founding.

In 2013, we’retaking things up a notch.Over the next two days we’ve laid on over 70 speakers - all of whom have,or are, making their mark on the world.
