Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Peter Roberts is founder and former CEO of Pure Gym, the UK’s largest private gym operator with over 190 gyms and more than 800,000 members across the UK. When Peter launched Pure Gym back in 2008 he wanted to start a business which removed the typical barriers to ‘gym entry’ and to heavily disrupt a market dominated by mid to high end operators. Peter will share all on this fabulous British success story, offering valuable advice to any founder looking to shake up and disrupt an industry sector and to develop a business model that can heavily scale.

This dinner is perfect for…
Business owners and CEO’s looking to launch and scale a disruptive business. This may specifically suit business owners and CEO’s working in the hospitality, leisure, fitness and wellness sectors.
If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at hello@tablecrowd.com to discuss whether this is the right dinner for you. Also feel free to check out our other dinners as another might match you perfectly!

The dinner conversation will be…
Peter has an impressive and long standing entrepreneurial career and he has a wealth of experience working in the leisure and hospitality sector. He is keen to support fellow entrepreneurs and pass on his knowledge on quickly scaling a business. He is therefore perfectly placed to speak about:
✓ Finding the perfect pain point for mass industry disruption.
✓ Building the right management team and why this matters.
✓ Gaining investment to scale - how finding the right investment was key to growth.
✓ The story of Pure Gym - from 1 to 190 gyms.
Take this opportunity to hear from Peter, to leave with ideas and inspiration for your own business as well as the opportunity to speak to others facing similar industry challenges and opportunities as you informally over dinner.

Who is Peter Roberts?
Peter Roberts is the founder and former CEO of Pure Gym, the UK’s largest private gym operator with over 190 gyms and more than 800,000 members across the UK.

What’s included?

Peter founded Pure Gym in September 2008 after conducting extensive research into the low cost gym market. Peter was responsible for establishing the management team and raising the initial investment to further develop Pure Gym through Private EIS Funds. Subsequent expansion through institutional equity and traditional banking, has led to the business increasing its revenue thirty times over the last three years!
