It's a testament to Sainsbury's boss Justin King that when he announced his departure in January, the supermarket's share price instantly dropped by 2%. King has been credited with transforming the company's fortunes, putting it firmly in the number two spot of UK supermarkets, hot on the heels of rival Tesco. Oh, and this year he was voted Britain's Most Admired Leader...

So who better to be the keynote speaker 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 King – 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. A panel of entrepreneurs including Decoded’s Kathryn Parsons and MT columnist Luke Johnson will also share their tips to success.

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...
