Successful entrepreneurs need to be leaders, not lone wolves.
Entrepreneurial leaders need first to understand themselves, build a strong culture, identify and engage the key people and partners needed to build a high performing team.
This session will cover:
•      ‘It all starts with you’ - understanding what you are good at and how to leverage and multiply your talents
•      How should you pick your team mates for an entrepreneurial venture
•      What people want – intrinsic motivation at work
•      Competing for talent - recruiting for success in start-ups and growth businesses
•      Understanding the big attractions of small businesses and start-ups
Colin Graham, the founding CEO of the Innovation Centre, presents this lunchtime workshop – the third in the Entrepreneurial Leadership series.
Colin has a strong marketing and HR background and was the co-founder and CEO of Yellowbrick Training & Development in the UK and USA and helped to recruit several hundred professional staff for both SME and multinational client companies. He also worked as a strategic advisor to many of the world’s leading companies – including Reuters, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Unilever - and published three commercial research reports including ‘ePeople, Engaging Talent in the Entrepreneurial Age’ for the Career Innovation Company in Oxford - the Times Newspaper review of this report said ‘All CEO’s should read it and heed it.’
Over the last decade, Colin has worked closely with over 100 start-up and early stage businesses in the UK and Australia, giving him practical insights into what works and makes a real difference in recruiting and building an entrepreneurial team.
