Allan Panthera Selected to Speak At Fireside Summit 2019

Allan Panthera is delighted to have been invited to speak at the inaugural Fireside Summit 2019 in Bath, UK. As a completely ‘off-grid’ event about start-ups and innovation, the tech-focused conference is like no other because there is no mobile reception and no wifi at the location! This, say the organisers, is critical to the atmosphere of being “switched-off” and, therefore, truly reconnecting with each other; aside from a powerpoint-free conference under 5 different tracks, conversations and new ideas are also fuelled around camp fires with fellow entrepreneurs. Jamie Allan, CEO, said, “It is a real pleasure to join other esteemed colleagues within the tech space as a speaker at Fireside Summit 2019. Having previously experienced some serious and negative effects of being constantly connected for business, it will be great to continue my own efforts on work-life balance and completely disconnect over the course of the summit (as hard as it will be without the use of my phone!). I’m also looking forward to being immersed in such an innovative environment with fellow entrepreneurs, discussing emerging tech, sharing my experiences and also learning from the richness of theirs.”

The Fireside Summit 2019 takes place on 3-4th September, more details can be found at
