Graham Sutherland, CEO of BT Business, explains why we’re involved with this year’s International Festival for Business.

‘Our ambition here at BT is to transform Britain into a leading digital society. That’s one of the reasons why we’ve combined forces with EE, so we can continue to push the boundaries of technology innovation and improve the competitiveness of businesses across the UK.

The IFB provides a great platform for business people from all backgrounds to network, learn, and explore how they can grow their business, both at home and internationally, whilst showcasing everything that’s great about British business.

It presents a huge range of opportunities from networking opportunities and conference sessions, to listening to well-known speakers. Take your pick - it’s up to you to see what gives you the most benefit. 

At the bottom line, the Festival means better business – whether that’s in terms of increased sales, networking, or investment. And that’s why we’re proud to be part of it.’
