I was delighted to be invited by Lincoln University's School of Computer Science to share my experiences in a talk about entrepreneurship this afternoon.
I got some great advice from a similar talk when I was a student at Salford University. So I was delighted when John Lewak invited me to get involved at Lincoln University. The students were very kind and listened attentively to my ramblings about what it takes to be a modern entrepreneur.
We kicked off proceedings with a discussion on the traditional view of entrepreneurs in the media. The discussion soon moved on to topics such as confidence, risk and recognising opportunities as they present themselves. We discussed the role that entrepreneurship can play as an employee, when working for yourself and finally as an employer of others.
Thanks should go to John Lewak and Mel Chapman for setting up the event. I hope that sharing some of my experiences in starting and running a digital business has been helpful to the next generation of digital entrepreneurs.
