This programme is not academic in nature but as practical as it can get
It is facilitated by our MD Chris Goodwin (a serial entrepreneur) who will show them how to become streetwise when it comes to setting up their own business.
Entrepreneurship is just as critical a skill for people who work for existing businesses as well as new start-ups, developing the ability to be able to reinvent oneself has never been more crucial when it comes to dealing with this level of uncertainty.
Today, entrepreneurs have been described as facing a VUCA environment: one that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Previous notions of control and change management are being questioned, and new capabilities are now required of our future entrepreneurs.
Developing the ability to DISRUPT the norm is fundamental to our survival and future growth.
What is entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is about seeing things that other people don’t see which requires an element of risk taking which they do in a balanced way, i.e. short-term risk is balanced by the long-term view that eventually one of their ventures will pay off.
The need to be brave in your decision making and make a difference to society is fundamental.
Entrepreneurs have high levels of imagination and passion for what they believe in and have the ability to be a driving force for change through the taking or making of the opportunity whilst solving problems in the correct way.
They tend to fill the gaps in society that others can’t see, they develop the mindset and approach which enables them to look at all of the possibilities.
Yes, they will fail time and time again, but then that requires a different level of resilience!!
What do entrepreneurs do?
They break the rules and will make the world more productive through the driving, developing and implementation of new business ideas.
Why is entrepreneurship so important?
It’s all about creative enterprise which will solve todays and tomorrows problems through the development of new products and ideas for society through commercialisation and driving through innovation.
Society is always developing and changing, entrepreneurs need to be alert to new needs, which leads into routine job creation and then develops essential new businesses and industries.
Entrepreneurs spearhead change whilst developing the whole system around them; these new thinkers will lead the entrepreneurial way.
What does it mean to become an Entrepreneur?
To develop the art of becoming creative making things happen through problem solving and changing things; we become frustrated through things not working properly.
This is why we love bringing new ideas and projects to life; not waiting, but doing, making the world a better place can affect how we do things.
Developing the curiosity to be able to disrupt things which takes personal drive and the freedom of self-independence.
Entrepreneurship becomes a way of life; getting rid of the boredom of the everyday routine.

We will use the outdoors as a classroom for a couple of hours each day where we will go on our entrepreneurship coaching walks.
This course provides a practical toolkit for entrepreneurs, helping you to operate effectively as an entrepreneur in any environment across all sectors.
