What does it take to overcome probability and gain competitive advantage? How do you identify the pivot points and how necessary is it to be flexible? Where should the balance be between correcting the course and sticking to the plan and how does this help you to beat the odds? These are questions that many entrepreneurs and innovators have to answer as they develop their businesses. Certainly they are familiar issues for the guest speakers at our first Enterprise Tuesday session of the 2016/17 series on 8 November.

Monica Grady CBE , Professor of Planetary and Space Sciences at the Open University, was involved in the European Space Agency’s Rosetta space probe project. She’ll be talking about how the team overcame the odds to successfully land Philae (Rosetta’s lander module) on a comet in 2014. Monica will be joined by Tim Jones, CEO of the Allia Group and Chariman of the quoted flavour and fragrance supplier Treatt Plc.

The complete line-up of inspiring speakers for the Enterprise Tuesday series running in November 2016 and February 2017 is on the Cambridge Judge Business School website. It includes notable entrepreneurs such as Lloyd Dorfman, founder of Travelex; John Williams, founder of The Ideas Lab; and Sir Tim Smit KBE , co-founder of the Eden Project. Enterprise Tuesday is a great opportunity for those looking to explore entrepreneurial opportunities, to get informed on the ‘how to’ of being an entrepreneur; and to build quality networks with peers, practitioners and experts.
