Sir Paul Judge is a truly distinguished entrepreneur who gained deep industry experience after his time at Cambridge. He has mentored, chaired and invested in dozens of ventures and social enterprises as well as giving generously to many good causes – not least the funding and patronage of the Business School at Cambridge. His talk will draw on this wealth of experience to address how to attract the right calibre of people to a venture idea, raise money, and gain other resources and assets. He will encourage and enable you to ask what it is about you, your networks and business proposition that could persuade people to join you. Given the fast pace of business and venture growth, there is always the risk that you forget the real reason for your business. Sir Paul Judge has a particular view to answering this question for entrepreneurs.
