Fast Track 100

This family-owned business was founded in 2008 by three siblings: Sarah McCaldin, 43, Joanna Beattie, 41, and Miles Harley, 37. Combining their events and sales experience, the three set up a company specialising in conferences for the life sciences, security, oil and gas and finance sectors. The London firm researches themes that it believes will be attractive to potential sponsors and delegates, then stages the event, charging for attendance. Sales reached £6.3m in 2012, with about 80% of revenue generated overseas.
