The Business Skype Tours continued with a visit to Highbury College, in Portsmouth. Teacher Graham Carter arranged the session by contacting Neil Westwood on Twitter. Graham is the Programme Leader HE Business and Advanced Practitioner.
Neils insights into the challenges and rewards involved in building a successful business from scratch proved invaluable to the Foundation Degree business students at Highbury College. He shared how he has used social media to engage with existing and potential customers, developed an innovative range of products and survived the Dragons Den to become a British success story. An invaluable insight into a real business.
Some quotes from the students:
Such an inspiring talk using modern technology from a successful entrepreneur
Incredibly informative. A great idea led to amazing success.
Neil’s business model was interesting and unique.
Business needs courage and instinct, with a positive attitude to risk.
Never give up.
