Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship inspiring directors of tomorrow

Join us for an interactive session to hear from seasoned directors about their own business journeys and the skills required to succeed.

As part of Global Entrepreneurs Week, the Surrey IoD branch, in collaboration with the University of Surrey, University of Creative Arts and Royal Holloway University are hosting an online event aimed at undergraduates with an interest in starting their own business or understanding how these skills can benefit any future employment.

Members of the IoD will share their experiences of setting up and running a business looking at areas including lessons learned (good and bad), top tips and recommended connections/foundational knowledge to make you stand out from the crowd.

They will also talk about Intrapreneurship – the value of harnessing an entrepreneurial spirit in established businesses, something employers are increasingly seeking in today’s fast changing business scene.

Whether you are interested in starting your own business now, think that it might be something for the future or want to increase your employability in an established business by improving your skillset, this is the event for you.

Attendees with have an opportunity to submit any questions on the day.

Hosted by Abigail Maino, Employment Partner at DMH Stallard LLP and Surrey IoD Ambassador for Education, HR and Employment with panellists from the Surrey IoD branch and IoD central.

IoD members and non-members from Surrey-wide and surrounding areas welcome! 

A joining link will be issued a few days prior to the event, so please save the time in your diaries once registered! 

Please do join us, we look forward to welcoming you.
