✓ Finding the perfect pain point for mass industry disruption.

✓ Building the right management team and why this matters.

✓ Gaining investment to scale - how finding the right investment was key to growth.

✓ The story of Pure Gym - from 1 to 190 gyms.

Take this opportunity to hear from Peter, to leave with ideas and inspiration for your own business as well as the opportunity to speak to others facing similar industry challenges and opportunities as you informally over dinner.
