The Big Debate
Lively, topical and challenging, Big Debates attract more than 100 people from the businesses, charity, corporate and public sectors. It’s a chance to hear an expert panel address key issues facing businesses in the city – and maybe influence the decisions they make too.
The interactive format allows time for table discussion with other attendees. We record the outputs from attendees, summarise them and share them with the decision makers in the city to help inform their work.
Open to all.
You can follow Big Debates live on Twitter on #BigDb8

We have re-shaped work and the city has changed, October 2020
Scaling up and growing a business has specific challenges - accessing finance, employing the right staff and finding workspace while hitting sales targets. At these events you’ll hear from other leaders and founders who have taken risks and overcome challenges.
These panel events are 17.30-19.30
The Brighton Summit every October is a conference bringing together our city’s diverse business community for a day of inspiring talks, practical workshops and new experiences.
The number and the quality of the people you’ll meet means the networking is off the scale. The vibe is exciting, the mood is collaborative and the food is wonderful. It’s the most productive and beneficial day you’ll spend out of the office all year.
