Meet Gary Turner and the Xero team @ Take Control: Live

Posted by Darren Wingfield 02 July 2015 02:30 PM

As you may have already noticed, we’ve been getting pretty excited about Xero recently, and that level of excitement is only due to increase as we prepare for our Summer Business Builder Workshop with Gary Turner, Managing Director of Xero.

Gary will be one of two guest speakers who will be performing for us at The Live Theatre in Newcastle on 22nd July.

As Xero has taken the top spot in the Forbes 100 Most Innovative Growth Companies for two years running, it will be interesting to hear more about how the company has grown from a man who has been involved from the beginning.

Gary has watched the UK business grow from a four person start up in 2009, to a company with more than 100 staff, and a global business with over 500,000 customers (more than 83,000 of these based in the UK) around the globe.

The part that we find really exciting is that Gary believes that Xero have barely scratched the surface of a huge, once-in-a-lifetime global opportunity to transform millions of small businesses with smart, connected business software.

With 20 years worth of experience in the UK’s accounting software industry, we know that Gary will be a great guest speaker at our Summer Business Builder Workshop.

Gary will sharing the stage with ‘Mentalist’ Gilan Gork who will be imparting some of the experience he has learned over the past two decades. Gilan is able to read and influence people in the contexts of leadership, sales, negotiations and other areas of business and our Summer Business Builder Workshop will be his first time speaking in the UK.
