Gavin Henry, managing director of SureVoIP, will be speaking at the Granite Expo Seminar at 11:15 on Thursday 27th October (SureVoIP also have a stand at the Expo, so why not come along and say hi!). The talk details are below.
Realising and accepting that you may just be an entrepreneur:
Gavin will guide you through his 30-year journey spanning various events, decisions and “lucky chances” that have helped shape his path to running his own successful business. It’s easy to put achievements down to just luck, being in the right place at the right time or about who you know. Well, it's exactly all of the above.
This is an honest account of how little things can add up to something sustainable and highly enjoyable. Hopefully if you are thinking about starting a business, already own a start-up or an established company then you might gain some valuable insight – or at least identify with the feeling that the term “entrepreneur” does not apply to you, when in fact it really does.
When Gavin’s Dad died on Valentine’s Day this year, he thought back over his experiences to date and realised the importance of all the little things that had got him here today. Hopefully others will relate to this message and understand that they too can take that all-important step.
This talk originates from Gavin having been named as one of Scotland's top 40 entrepreneurs under the age of 40 and being invited to give a talk for 3rd Year pupils on Entrepreneurs Day at Ellon Academy in November 2016.
Gavin's company, SureVoIP, is regularly recognised as one of the best telecoms companies in Scotland and in the UK, most recently receiving nominations for two awards in the prestigious Comms National Awards 2016. The business also won the Best Business ITSP (Medium Enterprise) UK-wide honour in May 2016.
The Granite Expo audience will be the dry run so Gavin hopes it's of value to those listening, because in his words: “I'm not really an entrepreneur, I just have a passion for what I do.”
