There's nothing like a New Year to kick-start you into action on making those big life changes. So we thought we'd help you get on your way with that.

For this inspiring event Wild Folk Coworking are partnering with The Happy Startup School, an amazing new movement designed to help budding entrepreneurs develop their ideas into purpose-driven, sustainable and happy businesses. Based down the road in Brighton, they've already helped thousands of entrepreneurs across the globe, as well as hosting a sell-out conference in London's Hyde Park, workshops and online classes. They've been featured in Wired, the Guardian and .net magazine.


Mark Sears - Founder of Them Big Oak Trees

Mark spent 13 years at Virgin group where he oversaw the strategic direction of the Virgin brand and provided brand support for the 200 established Virgin businesses globally by championing the special culture that makes Virgin unique. 

18 months ago Mark decided to fly solo. He now works with brands and entrepreneurs helping them focus on growing purposeful brands that change things, for good. His unique take on brand building uses the principle of fieldwork to explore how natural systems and processes can provide the inspiration for growing future-proofed meaningful brands. 

Mark will explain why he decided to leave a dream job to follow his passion and how you can grow your brand around the things that inspire you most.

Laurence McCahill & Carlos Saba - Founders of Spook Studio and The Happy Startup School

In this talk they will tell us all about the amazing companies that have inspired them and all the great things the Happy Startup School is doing for our future businesses.
