    β€œBob’s presentation is absolutely excellent. He really understands this huge wave and opportunity presenting itself to the world. Bob presented a compelling story, and size of the opportunity clear” - Nick Hazell, CEO of V2 Food

    The event was great! I felt uplifted afterwards. The networking & presentation showed new possibilities - vegan businesses need to get a move on! Vegan businesses can be so supportive, we just need to reach out and connect! This event provided opportunities for future collaborations.

    Amanda - The Kynd Kitchen

    The event gave us a chance to connect with vegan businesses that we would not otherwise have been able to. Pressing questions are also answered by Bob and other business founders in a welcoming environment. Also, a note about Bob’s events, he has a way of driving engagement amongst a group. We valued the complementary events he put on through Covid-19, where many businesses collaborated and shared ideas in an online discussion forum.
