Southampton University graduate turned entrepreneur extraordinaire, Shirin Dehghan’s journey has taken her from her first position at Southampton Science Park, through a rule-breaking blue-chip career to ultimately successful businesswoman.

Shirin has led start-up, medium-size and corporate companies, building winning teams and forging new paths to bring disruptive products in the software and mobile communications industry to market. As Founder and Chief Executive of Arieso, she saw her software used at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the London 2012 Olympics, before selling her pioneering business for $85m.

Winner of numerous awards including Blackberry Woman in Technology, Best Woman in Mobile, Business Woman of the Year 2013, and European Entrepreneur of the Year 2013, Shirin now advises and mentors business leaders to achieve their own goals. This is one speaker not to be missed!

Sam is globally regarded as a leading authority on the subject of gin and cocktails. He has worked with Bombay Sapphire since 2009 and has developed his wealth of knowledge from working in the bar and restaurant industry for nearly twenty years.
