The University of Roehampton Business Society, run by students, hosted an evening with Julien Callede, COO and co-founder of Made.com and Baiju Solanki business speaker and founder of Be Entrepreneur Ltd.
Although very different in their backgrounds, both speakers identified key points that have led to success, and provided advice for students. Mr Baiju spoke about following your heart: he told the students if they believe in something, they should go for it. He said while some efforts do fail, that was okay, but people need to try it to find out. He also reiterated that if money was driving force, you will fail, a point that Mr Callede agreed with.

Having such well respected and experienced speakers is a real benefit to students as Maria Chiara Franco, Marketing Director of the society said: “The business society wants to bring in guest speakers to show that there is opportunity out there, if you are able to hear from someone who has followed a similar path as yourself, telling you this is what we’ve done, even if you fail that’s fine, go for it, is really inspiring.”
