Smart Upstart - A Workshop for Entrepreneurial Millennials
Interested? Get in touch!
John Smythe's 22 year old daughter, Rosie Smythe, is typical of Y gen - not sure if they want to work for big corporation. Although Rosie now has a cracking position as blogger for the MailOnline's You Magazine, she had experienced a number of unpaid internships none of which inspired any inspiration.
It did get me thinking about Y genners who want to run their own thing, and I’ve approached a bunch of amazing entrepreneurs asking them to participate in a workshop to encourage Y genners and any genners to start up!
We have a fabulous line up, so far comprising:
Dave Wallace – Heath Wallace – accessible digital access for customers to banks and broader
Marc Wright – Simply Communicate – the learning network on Social Media
Phoebe Lebrecht – Glass Digital Media (does our SM) – SM consultancy
Vicky Lebrecht –Bright Group International – Leading Global Illustration Agency
Ben Hart – Atmosphere – SM consultancy
Jacqueline Biggs –Brand Camp – Cut through brand strategy
Betty Adamou – Research Through Gaming – As on the tin
Laurence Barrett – Heresy – a Jungian coach/advisory firm where Fiona Smythe is also involved
Simon Robinson – Accountancy and corporate advisory
Linda Pilkington – Ormonde Jayne – Founder of this leading perfume house that has just launched across Russia
Oh and John Smythe as choreographer with three consultancy start-ups and one time non exec advisor to Heath Wallace.
The group will give TED style advice for would be entrepreneurs which we will video and YouTube after editing and when everyone is cool with content, of course.
We are just waiting to hear confirmation about a central venue for the event, following which we will start the invitation process – if you or anyone you know might be interested in attending as a would be entrepreneur just mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Equally if you know an entrepreneur that will add to the workshop experience, do get in touch – it might be you! It’s great that it’s presently a gender balanced group ranging from 24 years (Phoebe) to boomer John!
