Naimuri founder Richard Fallon is the latest speaker confirmed for TechBlast’s inaugural FUEL Manchester event on September 20th.
Fallon, who is also Naimuri’s chief technology officer, will be taking part in the two-part event, which is aimed at startups and scaleups and begins with a business breakfast discussion.
He’ll join Paul Gouge, co-founder of Playdemic, Richard Potter, CEO of Manchester-based artificial intelligence scaleup Peak, and several other entrepreneurs at the breakfast discussion, which takes place at KPMG’s Manchester office in St Peter’s Square.
Part two of FUEL Manchester is an exclusive masterclass where a select group of businesses will gain direct access to panels of experts.
The session will be split into dedicated pods and involve a deep dive on the subjects raised in the morning session with respected names from the world of business.
Manchester-based data intelligence company Naimuri employs 180 people and has grown turnover to £20m.
Fallon, who recently joined the board of Manchester Angels after becoming an angel investor, said: “When you’re working as a founder you’ve probably seen most things in business but you’re still learning.
“I’ve founded two businesses and have experienced all sorts for challenges, the ups and the downs.
“A big thing of mine is ‘do it’. Don’t delay. It’s so important to share knowledge. You have to keep looking at how you manage and share information.”
Fallon will be talking about a range of issues including the importance of culture and recruitment in a business.
“We have a really good culture at Naimuri,” he said. “Recruitment matters. We’ve placed a lot of effort on how we recruit people so they have the right values and skillsets.”
