FROM HOBBY TO NATIONAL BRAND by Andrew Lindsay
Andy Lindsay, MODSHOES: www.modshoes.co.uk
Andy has been doing internet design more or less from the start of the explosion of the internet in the late 1990s. He says the best bit of advice he ever received was from his grandad who said “Fiind something that you like to do and get paid to do it – then it won’t feel like work”.
Whilst he enjoyed his work, he always had a desire to sell ‘a thing’ online, rather than being a service based organization and with a passion for music and an impressive knowledge of band history and dynamics, particularly from the mod era, Andy turned his hobby into his business. He now runs MODSHOES, a niche online shoe supplier.
In this inspiring talk, Andy shares the story of how his business ‘MODSHOES’ went from being just a fun idea, to get some free shoes, to now being one of the main players within a niche market.

ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY by Bridget Bath
Having graduated in Chiropractic in 2002, Bridget has a wealth of experience running her own practice and treating a wide range of patients from all professions and ages.
She has a wide experience of many trades and the stresses they put upon the skeletal system.
Her aim is to provide effective care in a professional yet friendly environment, helping patients, if not by curing their pain and disability, then by helping them to control it and make the most of what they can do with treatment and advice on daily activities, posture, exercise and nutrition.
In this talk, Bridget will explain why a healthy spine and posture is about so much more than a good ergonomic set up of your work station and how it can infiltrate into all aspects of life: from how you sit, stand, lift, and carry to your hydration, exercise, breathing, food and sleep.
