Ben Heald – CEO, Sift Group
The Clifton Club
Tuesday 12th May 2015, 5:30 – 7:30pm
Why Some Ideas Fly And Others Die
This May Ben will be sharing some of Sift’s diabolical disasters, as well as tales of glittering growth! Ben’s always taken the view that you learn more from failures than successes. Failed acquisitions? Failed partnerships? Losing $1 million? Ben’s been there and got the T-shirt.
He’s also persevered, thrived and set up a number of successful business after learning some very valuable lessons. If you haven’t seen Ben speak before we guarantee you’ll be thoroughly entertained by his irksome business follies, plus you’ll learn some valuable do’s and dont’s for your own business along the way.
About the Speaker

He launched AccountingWEB in 1997, now one of the UK’s largest online professional publishing businesses, and has been involved in launching all Sift’s businesses since then. He is a regular speaker on digital media and online business.
About Sift Digital
Sift Digital have been leading the way in the field of digital engagement for over seven years. Our mission is simple: to help organisations make the most out of their conversations with members, supporters, advocates and customers.
Through a blended approach of strategic thinking, user-led methodology and creative technology we work collaboratively with our clients right from the first point of scoping through to implementation and beyond. We’re not in the business of off-loading technology without insight. If it won’t work for you and your core audiences, we won’t recommend it.
