It was good to share ‘my story’ and my thoughts on entrepreneurship and business leadership, particularly in Cheshire moving forward, post Bexit.

Great to meet so many inspirational leaders, including: Phil Hodari, Rob McKay, Robert Ellis, Lucy Liang Nick Hodson, Kathryn Eade, Dr WingLam, Colin Tan, Dr. Phil Smith and John Adlen.

Three key takeaways:
1) the importance of open and honest dialogue
2) think positive and surround yourself with positive people
3) to be relentless takes resilience

Look forward to being part of the discussions on the development on an Entrepreneur Framework and equipping our SME’s to survive and thrive.

The Chester Forum is organised by the University of Chester Business Research Institute, the International Centre for Corporate and Public Affairs Research and the Faculties of Business Enterprise and Lifelong Learning and Science and Engineering.  This annual event aims to stimulate thinking and debate about key issues and themes of relevance to the regional, national and international business environment.  It is designed to run as an intimate round-table forum for free exchange of ideas and thoughts amongst informed participants made up from senior management from across the public and private sectors and government bodies, as well as politicians, public affairs practitioners, academics and those with a strong interest in domestic and international trade.
