About this event
Join our guest speaker - Simon Squibb - serial entrepreneur, mentor and podcast host, as part of our Regent's Global Leaders Speaker Series.
Entrepreneurs are a special group of people who have a passion for solving a certain problem and then create something that fixes it. You may have aspirations but what does it truly take to set up your own business? How do you take the leap from the 9 to 5 into entrepreneurship? What are the challenges in starting your own business? Join Simon - a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, mentor and podcast host - who will share his highs and lows of being an entrepreneur.
Simon has started 17 businesses, invested in 66 startups and has mentored hundreds of founders. Having sold his award-winning insight-driven branding and digital agency, Fluid, to PwC in 2016, Simon now focuses on inspiring, motivating and guiding the next generation of entrepreneurs.
