What is VarnFest all about?

Being a good leader requires dedication, hard work and self discovery. VarnFest was born out of a vision to share stories that will help others learn to be the best leader they can be and help their business grow.

At Varn our business focus is fantastic SEO and search marketing results for our clients and we know we can get websites to rank well. However, we also know there is much more to business than search engine marketing. That’s why we wanted to create VarnFest – a festival of business sharing the journey and path travelled to success – whatever success means to you.

At Varnfest business people and thinkers share their stories – honest talks about what they wish someone had told them when running their business, their biggest mistakes and challenges as leaders and what lessons they have learned over the years.

Who is VarnFest for?


VarnFest is for you if you’re a business owner, director, entrepreneur or founders and you’re keen to listen and learn what may have gone right and wrong for others in these leadership roles. Hear what other leaders would do differently and take away ideas to use in your own business to develop personally and professionally.
