Levi Roots, Reggae Reggae Sauce entrepreneur, confirmed as headline speaker at East Cambs Business Boost 2019

Reggae Reggae Sauce entrepreneur and Dragons' Den winner, Levi Roots, is confirmed as headline speaker at East Cambs Business Boost 2019 alongside Google and ex- Special Forces’ Jem Hills for the event, this year themed "RISE".

East Cambs Business Boost 2019, organised by Enterprise East Cambridgeshire (the economic development arm of East Cambs District Council) and the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce is now in its third year and will take place at the new Littleport Leisure Centre on November 14th.

Following on from 2018’s highly successful ACTIVATE theme, over 400 businesses from across the region are expected to attend the event’s uniquely blended networking, business showcasing and keynote speakers.

Levi Roots shot to fame after his memorable appearance on BBC's Dragons' Den in 2007, receiving investment for his jerk barbecue sauce from Dragons Peter Jones and Richard Farleigh. Shortly afterwards, Sainsbury's announced that they would stock Reggae Reggae Sauce in 600 of their stores across the UK. Since then the brand has grown from strength to strength with Levi becoming a popular figure on TV with his cookery shows and books. A movie about his life story starts production next year. Levi will speak to businesses in East Cambridgeshire about his phenomenal rise from street vendor to multi-million pound brand success.  Levi said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to speak at East Cambs Business Boost and looking forward to sharing my experiences.  The event theme of “Rise” is one that resonates with businesses and entrepreneurs. I’ll be emphasising the importance of putting the best version of yourself into your brand in order to take on challenges and rise to success.”

Global giants, Google, will also return to East Cambs Business Boost 2019 as speaker to show businesses how to rise up the Google Rankings using digital marketing techniques. Google was a hugely popular speaker for the first Business Boost event in 2017, delivering highly beneficial advice for businesses of all sizes.

We are also proud to announce ex-Special Forces and Counter Terrorism expert, Jem Hills, will complete the speaker line-up for 2019. Jem is a highly acclaimed inspirational speaker with a fascinating story regarding his own rise against adversity. Jem will explain how business owners can overcome the challenges they face on their path to achieving success.

East Cambs Business Boost 2019 is a not for profit event, and serves to benefit the local business community. This year we are proud to have Signpost2Grow and Price Bailey as our headline sponsors. Also supporting the event through sponsorship are The Printing Barn, Grovemere Property Services, PEM, Busy Bee Recruitment and more.

Exhibition stands are now available by visiting, attendee tickets will be released in the Autumn.
