An award-winning digital agency is holding a conference to help businesses thrive in the uncertain post-Brexit climate.

Space 48, which focuses on creating Magento platforms for retailers, will bring together thought leaders for the ‘Thriving in Uncertainty’ event in Manchester.

The Birchwood Park-based firm wanted to create a forum – Platform ExO – for people to share their insights on how to get ahead in this “brave new world” following the June referendum result.

Space 48’s founder and managing director Jon Woodall told BusinessCloud: “When the Brexit vote was announced there was a lot of fear and speculation about the implications for UK businesses.

"Now the negotiations over the UK’s exit are being discussed and there’s still a lot of uncertainty.

"That’s why I wanted to put on a different type of event - to change the tone of the Brexit discussion.

"Adversity for one person means opportunity for someone else. We’ve got a quality line-up of speakers and there’s still time to register.”

Entrepreneur Daniel Priestley, author of ‘Key Person of Influence’, is the headline speaker at the event on the afternoon of Monday September 19th (12-6pm).

Mentor Derek Mills, author of ‘The 10-Second Philosophy’, and explorer Mark Wood have also been confirmed among the speakers.

The first 100 people to purchase a ticket will receive a free copy of ‘Key Person of Influence’ while all money raised will be donated to charity.

Since its inception in 2008, Space 48 has grown to a team of 37 staff with a turnover of £1.85m.

The agency won the Small Digital Business of the Year gong at the 2015 Digital Entrepreneur Awards.

The event will be held at the UKFast Auditorium, 1 Archway, Birley Fields, Manchester M15 1QJ.
