The Voom Tour 2017


We brought the #VOOM to Belfast!

Our game-changing, business-boosting, coffee-fuelled tour rolled into Northern Ireland in June, and what an occasion it was. 

The big red bus has a habit of bringing out the very best imagination and talent in business – and Belfast was no different. 

Between free advice sessions, presentations, and marketing masterclasses, there was plenty of action around the bus, but the real excitement was, as ever, reserved for our Voom Pitch competition.   

A typically competitive clash saw the crowd bowled over by Becca Hume of TapSOS. Her idea, a cleverly designed app that allows for non-verbal communication with emergency services, was a popular winner on Day 2. 

Thanks Belfast!
