Urbano networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs, corporates, professionals and creatives - and those that advise them on funding, law, tax, due diligence etc to make connections, build associations, and learn from some of the UK's most informed and successful entrepreneurs, business people and cross-sector specialists.

Urbano speaker breakfasts are stripped down conferences, featuring great speakers, allowing attendees to discuss the issues featured in the guest presentation and plenty of opportunity to network with the speaker and the other attendees from all sizes and types of companies, from PLCs to SMEs.

Urbano Finance events especially attract a mix of accountants, lawyers, advisors, FDs and others with interests in the finance and advisory sectors. . Previous Urbano Finance speakers have included Spencer Dale (when Chief Economist to the Bank of England), Modwenna Rees-Mogg, Sarwant Singh, Darren Westlake (CEO CrowdCube), John Whiting, Office of Tax Simplification, Simon Dixon (Bitcoin/Alternative Investments) and Jonathan Fisher QC.
