Urban designer and heritage consultant, Katie Kershaw, director of Birmingham-based consultancy Node Urban Design, will share her experience of making the jump from relative security to a new, high risk venture at Aston Business Network on Wednesday 18 November.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business.
This year’s theme, “make it happen”, is intended to inspire people to do one thing to become more entrepreneurial. To underline this, Katie will be encouraging participants to move out of their comfort zone.
Katie explained: “My best days are days when I've tried something new. It doesn't matter if it didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted. You need to get more comfortable being uncomfortable, because that’s the only way you actually grow as a person.”
