Google comes to the High Growth Foundation

Creating innovative high performance cultures is what Alexis Giles from Google’s Mountain View HQ (San Francisco) will talk about tomorrow evening. Alexis will share her insights and provide over 250 delegates with a preview of what made Google the global phenomenon it is today. We are also delighted to have Steve Oliver CEO from Music Magpie, one of the North’s potential global stars. Deepak Jayaraman, from Goldman Sachs will provide his highly valued opinion on what his organisation is doing to create more high growth businesses – the importance of leadership, differentiated value propositions, mindset and attitude.

Hopefully this event will stimulate big thinking in the Region and get entrepreneurs to remember “we have one life, give it a go, aim for the big time and avoid any regrets in years to come”. How many times have I heard people say “I wish I would have……….”

Implementing big thinking often means risk, however, if growth decisions are made within a framework of insight and peer-to-peer networks then it creates some degree of comfort to those who have a burning desire to make a difference.

Most successful entrepreneurs I have met have been inspired by someone, something or an event in their life – one that drives change and a new path. I certainly hope this showcase and the study tour we are taking to the West Coast of the States (Silicon Valley) in early 2012, will stimulate individuals to embrace a truly limitless view on where they can take their business. High growth takes courage, determination and balls – this event is for doers not dreamers……

    Great blog John, as you say it’s all about having that “fire in your belly”, the enthusiam and passion to succeed! My life changed over the summer which made me want to set up my own business, I’d probably not done that otherwise so you have to grab those opportunities when you can!
