Enterprise Nation's podcast, the Small Business Sessions powered by Xero, is back for series three!

Each week Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones MBE speaks to entrepreneurs and experts about starting and growing a successful business.

To kick off the new series, we have a revealing interview with social entrepreneur Sam Conniff Allende who discusses his journey from a business during the nightclub boom at the start of the millennium, suffering death threats and massive debt to growing a digital agency with a conscience and writing his book, Be More Pirate, which reveals how the radical strategies of pirates provide solutions for making your mark on the 21st century.

Following a degree in Law and Japanese, Emma joined international accounting firm Arthur Andersen, where she worked in London, Leeds and Manchester offices and set up the firm's Inward Investment practice that attracted overseas companies to locate in the UK. In 2000, bitten by the dot.com bug, Emma left the firm to start her first business, Techlocate. After 15 months, the company was successfully sold to Tenon plc. The experience of starting, growing and selling a business from a home base gave Emma the idea for Enterprise Nation which was launched in 2006 as the home business website. The company has since expanded to become a small business membership community of over 75,000 people who benefit from events and support: online and in person. Enterprise Nation also presents a campaigning voice to government and the media on behalf of its members. In 2021, Emma was awarded a CBE for services to small businesses and entrepreneurs.
