10X Growth Con 3 FAQ
Last week I attended the Intelligent Millionaires Network In Cardiff, run by John Stokoe.
This was a well attended and professional business networking event in Cardiff that had a lot to offer.
In addition to the standard freestyle networking that many business networking events offer, the Intelligent Millionaires Network also offers added value to its members by providing a number of speakers to learn from at their events.
First we learnt about Time Management and completing task and goals…
Then we learnt about thinking big, trading internationally and taking advantage of opportunities!
We then learnt about work life balance, the unlimited powers of self belief and mindfulness from John Christian from http://www.lifebalanceportal.com who was exceptional.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Networking Event and the continuation of the networking in the bar after the event officially closed. So much so that I met with John the following day and joined. I joined not just for the monthly Cardiff event but to also go networking in London at their London Event from January. There are also 24 other similar events around the world if I fancy any of them.
If anyone wants to join me at the next event in Cardiff on January 8th 2019 or an event in London in January, please let me know?
The Introbiz Expo of 2018 was an immensely successful business event in Wales, with record crowds attending. Introbiz were ambitious enough to carry out four sold-out business events in one day, and it worked.
The Introbiz Team worked so hard to ensure success and learned a lot as a team. At Introbiz it is their upmost aim to connect business so that they can thrive, so it was a pleasure to see so many connections and even deals made on the day!
Introbiz are determined to up the ante next year – so stay tuned… watch this space. If you were not able to make the Expo (Wales’ Biggest Business Expo at the Motorpoint Arena), this year, here is what you missed.
With the sun peeping through the winter clouds on the morning of the Introbiz Expo, all was still at 7am outside the Motorpoint Arena. Inside, however, it was a different story.
Through the front doors, there were huge crowds queueing down the street to get inside. Entrepreneurs were in search of coffee and getting ready for the day ahead, beginning with Wales’ biggest Networking Breakfast event. Last minute touches were put to the record number of stands being exhibited, with the smell of full English breakfasts and fresh croissants wafting through the arena.
The Introbiz Expo 2018 had begun.
Wales largest Networking Breakfast event, sponsored by PIXAFUSION Digital
The day kicked off with WRU CEO Martyn Phillips and BBC’s Scrum V presenter Sean Holley hosting a live Q&A. This took place with over 300 guests enjoying a breakfast fit for royalty, provided by the award-winning Spiros Caterers.
But first, there was an important surprise. The Royal Welsh Third Battalion slowly marched into the breakfast room, dazzling the crowd with their percussion and musical talent. With their drums and uniforms catching everyone’s eye, they provided the perfect beginning to the day. They acted as a clue to the theme of the VIP Charity Gala Dinner later in the evening, accompanying ABF The Soldiers’ Charity on their stand throughout the day.

Lord Sugar Lunch, sponsored by Hunter Jones Investments
One of the main and highly anticipated keynote speakers took to the stage at midday. The business mandate and nation’s favourite hirer and firer, Lord Alan Sugar arrived in Cardiff to give the Welsh business community an insight into his business expertise.
With Spiros Caterers kindly providing the lunch too, the guests sat down to await Lord Sugar. Over 300 high-profile business celebs and entrepreneurs joined us in the curtained off room for the VIP experience, with Lord Sugar partaking in a live Q&A with Paul and Tracey Smolinski, Introbiz’ MDs. The Lord’s wit and humour did not go amiss, with many saying they were over the moon to have seen their business idol in person.

Grant Cardone 10X, sponsored by Paul McFadden Wealth and Thrive Assets
The global entrepreneur Grant Cardone was in the UK on his 10X Tour and he visited London, Glasgow and the #IntrobizExpo along with us in Cardiff. With people paying thousands to see him live in America, there was a huge hype generated in the UK’s business community. He certainly lived up to his reputation. The packed-out room was encapsulated by Grant Cardone as he delivered his 10X talk and Sales & Marketing advice.
This American sales guru brought along his gorgeous family, including the mesmerising Elena Cardone and hypnotised the crowd with his proven business philosophies. Guests were walking away from his talk feeling more than inspired and ready to 10X their business, which is what the Expo is all about!
Check out the keynote speakers gallery from the #IntrobizExpo event in Cardiff Online here.
VIP Charity Gala Dinner, sponsored by Godiva Insurance
Taking place at The Vale Resort, our VIP Charity and Awards Gala Dinner really was awe-inspiring. The room was dressed up beautifully (but not as beautifully as the guests!!), really showcasing a celebratory, Christmassy vibe – the ideal setting to relax and enjoy the aftermath and the success of the day. Sean Holley addressed the crowd as compère, hosting an auction and a raffle to raise money for the ABF Soldiers’ Charity. Prizes such as a black-tie dinner for two at Edinburgh Castle + VIP Royal Gallery for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Afternoon Tea at the Savoy Hotel in London were on offer and generated much interest and friendly competition. With great pride Introbiz are proud to say that they raised a large sum of money for the ABF Soldiers’ charity.
Introbiz also announced some fantastic award winners at this prestigious event.
This was the perfect end to a great business event packaged day in Wales, filled with success, emotion and pride. The Introbiz goal was met when they received such positive feedback from exhibitors, visitors, sponsors and keynote speakers alike!

The Introbiz Expo 2018 was our biggest yet. Wales’ largest business Expo took another leap and is now the largest business Expo by FAR. This could not have been done without everyone who took part, exhibitors, keynote speakers, visitors, sponsors and volunteers alike. We are over the moon to hear how beneficial everyone found the day, with businesses already following up contacts made and making deals left right and centre! We felt it necessary to recognise those that particularly excelled. So, here’s a massive congratulations to all of our Introbiz Expo Award Winners!
After an incredibly difficult choice, we decided that Zenith Print and Packaging would be the winner of the Best Large Stand. With their all singing, all dancing funfair style stand, they attracted such a large amount of footfall and clearly made the most out of their Expo experience. Giving away free teddies just before Christmas was a stroke of genius, in our opinion.
Here is the link to their website to find out more http://zenithprintgroup.com/
The winner of Best Medium Stand was 123 Divorce. Their stand stood out because of their insistent use of anything pink, if it wasn’t pink, it wasn’t allowed on the stand! Their theory is, in a time of grey, they will be the colour in your life, helping you through the difficult times brought on by a divorce. This branding really makes them stand out and we believe this deserved an award. (WelshBiz owners MA Consultancy are very happy that our Clients won )!

As a much-loved science discovery centre in Cardiff, it’s a task to demonstrate what Techniquest is all about at a business exhibition in the Motorpoint Arena. Yet they pulled it off with flying colours, by transporting an actual exhibit from their museum. Techniquest wooed visitors with something different, they were able to measure their reaction times by placing their hands onto the exhibit. Nothing like a bit of healthy competition! Therefore, they won Best Small Stand.
Check out what they’ve got going on here https://www.techniquest.org/
We chose Dreams & Wishes charity as our winners of Best Marketing. It was hard to miss them all over social media! This charity is such a worthy cause, granting ill children their dreams and wishes. Their marketing is ‘on point’ and deserves recognition, keep it up Dreams & Wishes!
Have a look at their brilliant work here https://www.dreamsandwishescharity.org/
123 Divorce didn’t just win Best Medium Stand, they also won 2nd Best Marketing! As aforementioned, their pink campaign is hard to miss. They stand out from the crowd and that is what good marketing is all about. Congratulations 123 Divorce!
Check above for their website details! (WelshBiz’s owners MA Consultancy are proud of this award as we have been doing all of their marketing for their launch at the expo ).
In 3rd place for Best Marketing was PIXAFUSION Digital. They are a full-service digital marketing agency, and this really shows in their own marketing. Their advertising before and during the Expo was excellent and we loved it!
See why they deserved this award here https://pixafusion.digital/
After much thought, we decided that Giovanni Malacrino was the worthy winner of Entrepreneur of the Year. He is the Welsh Italian that everyone wants to know and get involved with. His brain for business is impressive and this is evident in the work he has completed this year with Introbiz. We adore his restaurants Giovanni’s Park Place and Giovanni’s The Hayes, and our MDs Paul and Tracey Smolinski really enjoyed trying his Cookery School! His restaurants are very popular with celebrities and he often welcomes the likes of Cliff Richard, Katherine Jenkins, Shirley Bassey and Tom Jones. On top of this, Gio always wants to help people, he has no hidden agenda. He stands out with his charitable work. Keep it up Gio!
Have a look at what he has been up to here https://www.giovanniscardiff.co.uk/
Prodec earned this award well and truly. They closed the biggest deal in the network this year. This took place at the end of a journey, which began with Rebecca knocking on our office door, trying to sell her services to us. We returned the favour by telling her what we do, resulting in her signing up to the Introbiz network. Through the network we connected her with the right people, and hence, the 1.5 million-pound deal was done. Congrats Prodec!

Cobalt HR earned the title of the Best Start-Up! We think their efforts deserved recognition as they have really grown throughout the year. Kerry has been so active this year, regularly hosting successful events in the city. Keep up the good work, we love watching your journey!
See how successful they are here https://www.cobalt-hr.co.uk/
Mike Armstrong from MA Consultancy won Networker of the Year for good reason. Although every member of Introbiz deserves an award for networking, Mike raised the bar indeed! And now after listening to Grant Cardone’s speech at the Expo, Mike is truly 10X-ing his business and his life. What an inspiration! (WelshBiz’ Owners MA Consultancy run by Mike Armstrong) are very proud of this achievement and would like to publicly thank Introbiz for being awesome, having an awesome network and changing the shape of networking and business expo’s in Wales and around the UK. Keep up the great work )!
