JACKET FOR MEN COMPULSORY + NO JEANS OR TRAINERS ALLOWED
This event’s purpose is to present a different approach to the entrepreneurial life and show that not all entrepreneurs start their companies right out of university. We will therefore focus on four entrepreneurs who started their career with a regular full-time job and then decided to create their own company. They will explain how they made the change from corporate life to entrepreneurship and their learnings in the transition. The idea is to inspire people who are following a traditional career path and to show that it is possible to go a different way.
Sebastian Steinhauser – Parcelly (http://www.parcelly.com/)
Parcelly’s aim is to make it easier for people to receive their online purchases by allowing them to send their parcels to shops of their choice, where they can pick the items up when it is best for them. Who has not encountered this problem?
John Maxted - Digby Morgan (http://www.digby-morgan.com/)
After a career in human resources in large groups such as British Airways and Arthur Andersen, Mr. Maxted founded Digby Morgan in 1988 where he served as CEO for 23 years. Digby Morgan is providing HR recruitment services with 6 offices across three continents employing 100 consultants. Following the acquisition of Digby Morgan by Randstad in 2008, he remained Managing Director for the UK until 2011. He is a well-known figure in the HR profession and a chartered fellow of the CIPD.
Geeta Sidhu-Robb - Nosh Detox (http://www.noshdetox.com/)
Nosh was founded in 2008 as a result of Geeta spending years fighting her son’s multiple food allergies. She eventually left her job to focus on caring for him and ended up developing her own solutions using nutritious, balanced meals, alternative therapies and natural supplements. She is now selling her Raw juices and smoothies to the likes of Whole Foods, Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado.
Stephen Lilley – Greencoat (http://www.greencoat-capital.com/)
After a successful career in the investment management sector where he invested £800m on behalf of clients into the utilities and renewable sectors, Stephen is now running Greencoat UK Wind which is the first and leading UK-listed renewable infrastructure fund with investments in 16 wind farms and a market capitalization of c.£500m. It is also possible to innovate in the financial sector!
