Graduate Focus - Entrepreneurship still vital to help established businesses grow
Entrepreneurship isn’t just for new businesses – it is essential to help established companies stay ahead of the competition.
That’s according to a global business expert who will speak at Queen’s University on Monday.
Ms Hanadi Jabado, Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Cambridge, believes all businesses, old and new, need to keep thinking like entrepreneurs.
She said: “Established businesses can fall in to a pattern of running ‘business as usual’, or even worse, focusing on fire fighting problems, but continuing to innovate is key to ensuring a company grows.”
Ms Jabado will share her insights into entrepreneurial success at next week’s InterTradeIreland Innovation Lecture at Queen’s.
The lecture is free to attend and will take place at 6.00pm in Riddel Hall, Stranmillis Road, on Monday 15 October.At the lecture, entitled Rejuvenate Your Business Through Entrepreneurship, Ms Jabado will address the benefits of nurturing entrepreneurial behaviour, and the associated challenges of managing entrepreneurial employees.
The lecture is part of the InterTradeIreland All-Island Innovation Programme, which aims to promote and encourage innovation across the island through a series of free innovation lectures, seminars and masterclasses held throughout the year to share international best practice in areas of innovation.
