‘Don’t set tar­gets based on his­tory’

- Streatham, Clapham & West Norwood Post · Cazenove

Con­fer­ence speaker Mark Beau­mont drew par­al­lels be­tween his feat of cy­cling around the world in 80 days and en­trepreneur­s set­ting lofty tar­gets.

He said: “I’m a mas­sive fan of shoot­ing for the stars and putting all your cards on the ta­ble. Know what’s gone be­fore, re­spect and learn from peo­ple who have done it be­fore you, but don’t set your tar­gets based on his­tory.”

Other speak­ers in­cluded Paul Forkan, co-founder of fash­ion brand Gandys.

En­tre­pre­neur­ial Scot­land is a net­work and lead­er­ship devel­op­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion, with 700 mem­bers, pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to share ex­pe­ri­ences and de­velop skills. Its con­fer­ence was sup­ported by head­line partner Cazen­ove Capital, with The Press & Journal, The Courier and Energy Voice as me­dia part­ners.
