Month of October
Igniting Enterprise had a great start to the year. Our first event was an introductory event about what we had to offer with a little pizza break in the middle. This event gave an overview of the society, what entrepreneurs are all about and allowed the society to understand and taylor the events to you.
Throughout the month we had two talks presented by Bob D' Silva, a now retired no-executive CEO, expert in Marketing and Sales. Do not fear, he will be back to do some more of these invaluable talks in the second semester.
This week just gone we were in the SU taking part in our annual Halloween sale. The objective of this was for members to experience face to face selling and allowed skills to be gained.
We have had a constructive amount of interest from student members who are in the process of setting up their own business and seek support.
As a society we can help your taking those first steps in becoming a true entrepreneur, All you need to do is come along to our events, seek help and join us here: http://www.upsu.com/societies/IgnitingEnterprise/
