Join Dr Nick Quinn, Entrepreneurship Academic at the University of Glasgow’s Adam Smith Business School, and R. Michael Anderson, software entrepreneur and leadership mentor to Microsoft, Salesforce, & PwC for insights based on extensive research.

Nick and Michael will share the essential “must-do” activities that the magical top 10% of winners post-downturn have done and reveal what is happening in the market that most business owners aren’t aware of (and need to be). Join this interactive session and find out which are the typical mistakes that most businesses are making, what are the biggest drivers of success in growth through a recession and what are the top three things to do next.
