How to be enterprising and 'Make a Million Before Lunch'!

Rachel Bridge is the former Enterprise Editor of The Sunday Times and author of four best-selling books about entrepreneurs. Her latest book, ‘How to Make a Million Before Lunch’, was published by Virgin Books.

She is currently writing her fifth book, 'How to Start a Business Without Any Money', to be published in August 2012.
She took a one-woman show to the 2010 Edinburgh comedy festival, also called 'How to Make a Million before Lunch', which played to sell-out audiences at The Pleasance.

Having interviewed hundreds of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs for her popular Sunday Times column, 'How I Made It', Rachel has gained a real insight into what makes entrepreneurs tick. By drawing on real life examples, she is the ideal person to talk about the common traits they share and look at what we can learn from them.

Rachel will share with students the secrets of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and outline the essential steps young entrepreneurs need to take in order to create a thriving enterprising business.
