Dragons’ Den star to open FSE
Bannatyne will be opening the show in his capacity as business ambassador for WellChild, the chosen charity of FSE which takes place on the 1 and 2 October at Old Billingsgate, in the heart of the City of London.
WellChild is the national charity for sick children providing essential practical and emotional support for seriously ill children, young people and those who care for them across the UK to ensure they receive the best possible quality of care.
James Prosser, director of Financial Services Expo, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have one of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs, Duncan Bannatyne, opening the exhibition next week in his capacity as Business Ambassador for our chosen charity, WellChild.
“This is a brand new exhibition for the financial services community in the UK and we wanted to ensure we supported an amazing charity which does an incredible amount of good work helping sick children and young people, whilst supporting the people who care for them.
“Duncan has kindly agreed to take time out of his busy schedule to open the show on Tuesday 1st October at 9am and we hope as many people as possible will be there to see him do this.
“I’m sure he will have a few words of business wisdom for our visitors and exhibitors and we hope his appearance will ensure all attendees can dig deep to help and support WellChild.”
