Opportunity Knocks, Edinburgh 29 May 2014
I had expected to spend 29 May attending another “event”, hearing platitudes mouthed by some familiar faces and trying to extract some value from the networking scrum during the breaks. Instead, Opportunity Knocks turned out to be the most passionate, thought provoking and inspiring business conference in my memory.
I could write a long and not at all boring post expounding all the great ideas I heard and picking out the funny, frank and fantastic bits from the day’s presenters. But let me just concentrate on the handful of things that made this standout so much from the run of the mill.
Support and help was the ultimate message of the day. It is working together that allows us to rise above our individual limitations and achieve great things. I left with lots of ideas for mentoring and collaborating with startups running around my head. Please use the comment box below to share your own best ideas about how we can help each other and leverage the passion and commitment of the whole community.
