The Do time is near

April is coming faster than we ever thought, and we are fully in the Do planning and doing stages, getting ready for all of our workshop, guests arriving, and lectures.

We also have a number of workshops coming up, The Do Workshops are practical “How to” day courses from inspirational people who have done it in the real world and we have such a great line up of guest lectures.

Here is more about the up and coming event.

DO ‘START-UP’, APRIL 25–28, 2013

Is your idea going to change the world? How do you fund it? How do you protect it? How do you build it? How do you market it? How do you brand it? How do you tell the world about it? How do you scale it? How do you hire the right people? How do you do all this and more? 20 amazing entrepreneurs are going to give you the answers, because they have been there and done it. Oh, and in the workshops after the talks, we are all going start a business in the 3 days of the event. Because the best way to learn is by doing. And then at night, we can just eat super fresh local food and listen to great music. Sleep will have to wait.

The Location

The Do Lectures takes place at Fforest, West Wales. One of the worlds best ideas festivals needs one of the worlds best location. Fforest farm is its magical home for the three days. It is located between the spectacular Teifi Gorge and Teifi Marshes. There is no place quite like it.

What it doesn’t have is as important as what it does have. No trouser press. No mini-bar. No TV. No internet. No room service. No dimmer switch for the stars. No wake-up call, unless you count the dawn chorus.

Just a welcome return to simple stuff. Eating bread baked that day. Sleeping under canvas. Feeling the cold. Listening to the rainfall. It’s not a hotel. But it’s the best hotel you will ever stay at.
