The Reggae Reggae sauce entrepreneur was the headline speaker as he spoke to local firms about his rise from street vendor to a multi-million pound brand at Littleport Leisure Centre on Thursday.
Levi used his speech at this year's event, assigned to the theme of 'Rise' to reflect growth and success, to help inspire businesses looking to expand and develop.
The event brought together East Cambridgeshire businesses through networking, an exhibition and engaging seminars.
