BackStory

In a fluctuating economic climate, the need to inspire your workforce to be entrepreneurial rises to the top of the business agenda. There are a lot of entrepreneurs out there but few who are able to so openly and effectively communicate and get straight to the point about ‘how’ to overcome the pitfalls to build your business.

With her award winning track record Abbie Cooke was invited to host the ‘Mind of A Millionaire’ event at London’s City Hall.

Due to its success, Abbie was invited back to host the follow-on event alongside Simon Woodroffe OBE, former presenter on Dragon’s Den and founder of the YO! Sushi restaurant chain. This spawned demand for her to host entrepreneurship seminars at universities in London, Birmingham and Loughborough and made her a magnet for local government enterprise developers and forward- thinking businesses. Her combination of real-life entrepreneurial experience and academic research proved to be a very popular combination.

What We Did

Event Host at Mind of a Millionaire

Lectures at London, Birmingham & Loughborough Universities

Abbie is creative and inspiring and her Ideas Generation session and Gameshow, was a perfect way of breaking the ice and encouraging team-building with our wide range of international postgraduate students.”

Dr James Elliott, Entrepreneurship Development Officer, Birmingham University.

Our idea

Our goal was to deliver a highly interactive series of events that were academically underpinned with a focus on teamwork, collaboration, idea generating, goal setting and action planning.

And…

Abbie did an outstanding job of launching our event.”
John Kirk, West Midlands Enterprise Fest

“Abbie’s approach to involving a participative audience is quite unique – she is definitely an inspirational speaker. In the seven years I’ve been involved in organising and/or participating in branch events I have never had so much fun.”
Karen Bird, Chair, CIPD Black Country Branch.

”We’ve a long experience of enterprise events for our local business community, but taking on Abbie’s Creativity Gameshow was a ‘first’ – and a bit of a gamble. But now we’ve witnessed a company CEO ‘rapping’ his team’s marketing plan, nothing else will faze us! Enjoyable, innovative and motivating.
John Barker, Special Projects, Furness Enterprise Ltd.
