BOSSES of small firms across the East of England will have a chance to learn how to 'survive and thrive' through the recession at the region's biggest business conference.

A total of 1,000 delegates from across the six counties of the eastern region are expected to attend the Destination Growth conference at Duxford in November.

The conference, organised by the East of England Development Agency (EEDA), will include keynote speeches from former BBC director general Greg Dyke, the founder of Ultimo bras, Michelle Mone, Angus Thirwell, the founder of Hotel Chocolat, and Scott Garrett, former Williams F1 commercial director.

Delegates will also take part in troubleshooting workshops, ranging from maximising the web and leadership master-classes, to how to find finance to the 'six habits of winners in a downturn'.

Destination Growth 09 takes place on November 3 and is open to leaders from small and medium-sized companies - businesses turning over more than �250,000 a year and employing fewer than 250 people.
