Details of this month’s speaker…
Eoin McQuone of Sustainable Business Design and Go Climate Positive
Don’t believe what they tell you, goals shouldn’t be SMART, they should be BIG, HAIRY and AUDACIOUS! My goal is to change the way that business works! I want to see better social and environmental outcomes knitted into the fabric of businesses, just like making a profit already is.
In this talk, I’ll share my business journey so far, including why I decided to leave the security of the corporate world to work for myself, why I’ve built my business on sustainability, how I’ve leveraged my previous knowledge and the knowledge of others and what I’ve learned in the first year of running my own business.
I’ve learned a lot about raising my profile through networking and social media, about staying true to my goals whilst being flexible about how to get there, about being open to ideas and not being afraid to try and fail, and about managing my time and money.
If there is one thing I know, it’s that I still have a lot to learn.
I look forward to meeting you at the Start and Grow Entrepreneurs’ Networking event. I’m sure we can learn a lot from each other.
