36Webinar with Penny Power OBE: ‘Business is Personal’
Awarded an OBE for ‘contribution to entrepreneurship in the Social Digital Economy’, Penny will be discussing her book ‘Business is Personal’ and how being the leader of your own life is the greatest lesson in business!
We live in a fast paced, over-connected world, and Penny will be sharing the areas of business that are rarely discussed, but have been learned the hard way by Penny and others. The emotions we need to understand, the mind we can be in control of, and tools learned, following years of hard work and many challenging moments.
Penny is best known for building Ecademy, the first social network for business people, created in 1998, it became a global, beautiful online and offline home for over 650,000 business owners. However after 14 years of extreme work it could no longer compete with the giants of LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter and lost the business in 2012.
Penny uses this experience and motivation to teach and empower other business leaders, particularly those in the world of angel investing and entrepreneurship.
