Event details:

Since selling the business in 2018 to Royal Bank of Scotland they have been on a mission to tell the real story of entrepreneuring, not the glamorised version so often played out in the media, the story they wished someone had told them. Now they have written a book and produced a series of podcasts called the Misadventures of Entrepreneuring. They focus on the most common misadventures entrepreneurs go on and how to navigate through them to achieve the life and business they would like to lead. 
Their book, ‘Misadventures in Entrepreneuring’ goes on sale on the 10th Sept 2020 and in this online masterclass, they are going to share stories and some of the best kept secrets from their own experience, as well as those they have worked with, to enable you to reset or reboot your thinking any time you find yourself facing an obstacle or an unknown. 
This event promises to bring you a refreshing take on what it feels like to walk in the shoes of an entrepreneur every day and bust some of commonly perpetuated myths about how you should be doing it.
