Evolve, the exclusive membership community for entrepreneurs and business leaders, are opening their Business Festival with an Entrepreneur and Founders Evening, taking place at Pavilion Dance on the 9th October 2019.

Hosted by Warren Munson, Founder of Evolve and Inspire, the evening will kick off with keynote speaker, Tom Mercer, who will tell of his success with his multi-million pound business, MOMA – Making Oats More Awesome. Former management consultant, Tom is an entrepreneur in every sense of the word; he saw a gap in the market for healthy on-the-go breakfasts and in ten years has built a multi-million pound business stocked in supermarkets across the country.

Tom Mercer, Founder of MOMA, said: “I am really excited to be part of this unique festival and share my story. From a make shift store in Waterloo Station, until now has been amazing. MOMA is now stocked nationally in supermarkets, trains and airlines. Sharing my journey, meeting and engaging with fellow Entrepreneurs and Business leaders along the South Coast will be great and I’m really looking forward to the event!”

Tom will be followed by a Q&A panel of entrepreneurs and founders from successful local businesses, including: Founder and Managing Director at Salad Creative, Arabella Lewis-Smith; Founder of NutriChef and award-winning nutritionist and specialist health consultant, Barbara Cox; Founder of Urban Guild, Mark Cribb and founder and CEO of Tops Day Nurseries and Hadland Care Group, Cheryl Hadland.

Mark Cribb, Founder of Urban Guild, added: “I’m thrilled to be part of a fantastic panel of entrepreneurs and founders. The event is a great opportunity for likeminded business leaders to come together, learn and motivate each other in an engaging and inspiring atmosphere.”

As part of Bournemouth’s BOMO Festival, the Evolve Business Festival will take place from 9th-16th October 2019 in locations across Bournemouth and Poole and will feature a fantastic line-up of inspirational and motivational events, from keynote speakers and networking breakfasts to charity dinners and development days.
