University of Chester Business School, Presentation 1st Oct

university of chester logo 3Neil Lewis presented the thoughts behind Rags to Wreckages to an audience of entrepreneurs and academics at the Univeristy of Chester Business School on 1st Oct 2009.

Asked the question, “what advice would you give a young graduate entrepreneur looking to start out in business“, he shared three key and controversial principles from Rags to Wreckages;

  • take no debt – find ways to build a business without debt (this is how the internet can help)
  • employ no one – use contractors, freelance etc but don’t write employment contracts that accrue liabilities
  • follow your passion – you will only be successful if you deliver excellence and for that you need to follow and stick to your passion

Testimonials from the evening which was sponsored by Best of Chester, include:

“This was certainly a thought-provoking event.  Mr Lewis was an excellent speaker, imparting valuable advice based on his first-hand experiences”

Chris Pyke, Head of Chester Business School

“very thought-provoking and useful for me as a business owner”

Simon Yates, Yates & Co Financial Planners

“It was fascintating to hear some of Neil’s Rags to Wreckages views, particularly regarding keeping debt low, contracting workforce and the evolution and learning process. All common sense things, but attributes that are rarely considered, probably because they are so obvious.”

Darren Mercer, Mercer & Associates Wealth Management Ltd
