We’re all different, that’s one of the joys of being us. Our society works because we all want different things – it’d be no good if we all wanted to go and be accountants, or teachers, or doctors or even prime ministers.
Just as we all want different jobs, we want different ways to do them. Some of us want to work for smaller employers, others want multinationals; some want private sector, others public. But what if you don’t actually want to work for anyone but yourself – is that too scary to even contemplate?

Unsure what to do after graduation? Fancy taking a risk on going alone?
If risk taking is your game, then why not attend “Are you crazy enough to run your own business?” and find out whether you have the nerve to go it alone.
Our panel of successful local business entrepreneurs will tell you how they’ve got where they are today and what they would do (or not do) again. Here’s your opportunity to quiz them about their journey and benefit from their ideas and suggestions. Plus we’ll provide a networking opportunity where you can get up close and personal with our panel guests.
If you want to find out if you are crazy enough to run your own business – join us on Tuesday 2nd March from 16.00pm – 18.00pm, MBS East. Book online if you want to go along
