"Best panel of speakers I've heard in 2 years of conferences" - Audience member
Yesterday FirstCOUNSEL COO Linda Schindler moderated a panel of outstanding speakers at the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) Global Entrepreneurship Week event held at the British High Commission.
What made the day stand out were all the personal stories shared. They highlighted how "successful entrepreneurs, they're just like us!" while at the same time showing how different their mindset is and has been since many were just children.
Some bits of advice:
Be a troublemaker
Be a little crazy
Be your parent's worst nightmare... which could turn into a pretty sweet dream
Be welcoming to lawyers at the early stages
Focus on building the right "it", rather than building "it" right
Create impact and value
Be able to learn and re-learn
And finally, be unafraid to start a business in the UK!
Thank you to DIT and Warren Pain, Michael Png and Lisa QIU for putting together a fantastic event.
