He's seen it, done it and now passing on the lessons he's learned to strip out years of cost and effort usually needed to achieve significant growth. The peer learning and networking opportunity linked to the Summer School brings with it the opportunity to spend three days with exceptional and ambitious entrepreneurs across almost every sector.
