Your Keynote Speaker
Rachel Bedgood - CEO Complete Background Screening

"I look forward to sharing with you how I transformed my business idea into one of the fastest growing businesses in Wales by embracing emerging technologies and by tirelessly forming profitable strategic alliances that continue to catapult our growth.

One of the biggest lessons I learnt that I am going to enjoy sharing with you will enable you to grow your stakeholders, trading partners, customers and turnover."

Rachel launched Complete Background Screening (CBS) in 2005 as an employment-screening house specialising in bespoke software systems to conduct online criminal record and employment reference checks.  Based in the small ex-mining village of Ynysybwl, Pontypridd,

Now Wales’ largest and the UK’s third largest, provider of criminal checks and employment screening services.  The company’s success can be attributed to its development of pioneering new products in the industry and of course, its CEO, Rachel Bedgood.

Rachel has done everything in her power to develop an outstanding and socially responsible business that thrives through acknowledgement of its roots and actively contributes not only to the economy of Wales but in particular the South Wales Valleys, which are in dire need of regeneration.  Rachel genuinely cares about what she does, her customers, the applications CBS processes and the impact that the business has not only on its customers, but the careers of each individual going through those checks.

CBS’ ethos has always been driven by Rachel’s personal ambition to help regenerate the local area, which is badly affected by unemployment. It has always been vitally important to her that the area in which she grew up, and which initially supported her business, should continue to reap the rewards. With this in mind, the whole team hails from the local community, while all services and suppliers are also sourced locally wherever possible. Rachel also has ambitious growth plans to turnover £50 million in the next 5 years, continuing to invest in the local community and Welsh economy through further employment opportunities in the process.

Rachel will share with you how she scaled up the key processes in her business to allow her to grow, reach more people and become more profitable. She will share with you the marketing tactics she aims to employ to increase the volume of customers she can reach and serve. And she will also share with you how she leveraged investment into her business and energy into her people that's assisted her to catapult her growth and success.
