Writers back UK Business Book Festival

2nd August 2010

A number of the UK's leading business authors have given their support to the first festival dedicated to the genre.

On September 10th, the UK Business Book Festival will be held at the Executive Business Centre in Bournemouth and feature a day of seminars and speeches to celebrate the importance of British works on entrepreneurship.

Among the writers set to appear at the event are Rachel Elnaugh, one of the original stars of Dragons' Den, Lend Me Your Ears author Max Atkinson and David Craig, who wrote Rip-off: The Scandalous Story of the Consulting Money Machine.

Robert Ashton, co-founder of the event, explained that the festival is intended to recognise the 'huge contribution' that business writing makes to the global economy.

He commented: 'Business books by British authors sell all over the world. Entrepreneurs on every continent find inspiration, ideas and practical tips from the books we write here in the UK.'

Ashton has written nine business books, including Instant Entrepreneur: The Faster Way to Start-Up Success and The Life Plan. His latest work - Brilliant Checklists for Entrepreneurs - is published on September 13th.
