What does it take to become a successful female entrepreneur – and book publisher?
Join one of the UK’s most successful female entrepreneurs and thinkers to explore her thoughts on entrepreneurship, publishing, working parents and the personal growth movement.
The name of publishing company Piatkus Books is synonymous with new thinking about alternative ideas. In this unique event, self-made entrepreneur, Judy Piatkus will share insights and reflect upon how she founded her company in the spare bedroom of her home at a time when there were very few women in business, how she grew it to be a global success, how and why Piatkus came to be known as pioneers in the personal growth movement and how she sold the company successfully to Little Brown before the great crash of 2007/8 which Piatkus had shrewdly foreseen.
There will be a Q&A afterwards.
