Decoded, founded in 2011, promises to teach people to code in a day (even tutoring MT editor Matthew Gwyther) and has just sold a 15% stake to the Guardian Media Group to help fund expansion to New York. Co-founder Kathryn Parsons began her career at Ogilvy and founded her first business in 2006. The entrepreneur also appeared on MT’s coveted 35 Women Under 35 list last year.

Want to know her tips for success? A panel of entrepreneurs including Parsons and MT columnist Luke Johnson will be discussing their businesses at our first-ever MT Live event, an interactive day where you'll have the chance to learn from and quiz Britain's biggest business leaders; and where you can make great contacts in an informal and welcoming environment.

Business leaders – including Sainsbury's chief executive Justin King and Facebook’s Europe, Middle East and Africa boss Nicola Mendelsohn - will share their experiences on a range of subjects including communication, leadership, reputation, social media and digital marketing, ethics, the next big innovation and, of course, money, cost and efficiency.

The programme also includes a speed mentoring session and representatives from John Lewis, Berkeley Homes and Abcam have already signed up.

The day, which will take place on 25 June 2014, will end with a live interview with Lord Heseltine on 60 years in politics and business.

The good news is that if you book your ticket to MT Live before April 1, you'll receive a 40% discount, paying just £249 plus VAT. Want to know more? Click here...
