I was both delighted (and a little terrified to be honest) to be asked to take the lead at the FEO September supper club, hosted by Shoot the Bull @ The Old House, Hull. Having chosen my subject (“the meaning of an entrepreneur”) all I had to do now was make it entertaining, informative, or ideally, both!
I threw in a little audience participation, a few anecdotes about my entrepreneurial journey and those who have inspired me, and an interactive quiz.
The whole idea was to get FEO members to evaluate whether they thought that they were true entrepreneurs- a quick poll at the beginning found that only 4 out of 18 of us believed we were! I’d like to think that by the end of my session this number had increased significantly.
For those of you who are wondering, the definition of an Entrepreneur is ‘a person who sets up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit.’
Thanks to Shoot the Bull for a delicious supper and to all FEO members who attended.
