Coaching / Sparsession / Brainstorm for entrepreneurs / enterprising people
In my opinion entrepreneurship is the highest step of personal leadership! - Do you dare to fail? What have you learned from your failure, or rather: learning moment? - Do you dare to look positively and critically at your own actions? Where is the strength of you as a person / entrepreneur? What can you outsource better? - How do I turn my idea into a company? - Who is my client? Which customer needs does my proposition provide? - How do I get customers? Keywords: Personal leadership, Dare to fail, Lean start-up, Business plan, Keep it simple stupid !, Doing business, Just Doing! Who am I? My name is Ben, 33 years old, and because of my red hair I was already 'different' from my classmates in primary school. Over the years I have experienced that thinking differently and acting differently is not always easy, partly because society, including the people in my immediate environment, feel that they have everything. Many people are unconsciously driven by (failure) anxiety and they exhibit risk-averse behavior. For example, my parents said well meaning: You now have such a good (and nice and safe) job: Why would you risk that? Many talk a lot about it, but never take concrete steps towards starting their own business. In the meantime I have experienced that I dare to make different choices than most people. That was and is sometimes exciting, but it brings me success in private and business terms! Many consecutive 'failure' moments have brought me to where I am now: a nice father who fulfills assignments 3 days a week as a Freelance Business Developer and Data / Business Analyst and launches new start-ups in the rest of the time.

Learn How To Start Your Own Business And Use Social media To Your Advantage

Business and Social Studies (Primary, GCSE, A-Levels, IB, Adult Education)
Methodology Having studied and worked at multiple educational environments in Greece and UK, I have found that the combination of formal and non-formal education methods is the best teaching tool for international students of diverse education backgrounds. In my lectures I present the theory of GCSE subjects (Business Studies, Philosophy, Social Studies, Humanities), as well as A-Level and IB subjects (Economics, Business & Entrepreneurship, Psychology, Social Students and Theory of Knowledge, History & Politics, Media Studies, Essay Writing, Presentations & Interviews) not only through lecturing, giving examples, mini exercises, assessments, but also through ice breaking and team bonding games, role-playing games, debate and mini projects. This aims to provide students not only with theoretical knowledge, but also with practical expertise, and at the same time to give them the opportunity to develop a plethora of soft skills that are useful for their educational and further professional background.

Simple Knowledge with the Business life (Management, Start-Up, Accounting. etc)
What is Business Studies? Business Studies is one of the most international study subjects in the world, due to how broad the subject is. As a broad subject in the social sciences, business studies opens the study field to a focus of specialties such as accountancy, finance, organisation, human resources management and marketing. Three reasons to study Business Studies: - Communication skills: aside from excellent maths skills, studying business also entails communication skills. You will gain credit points by writing papers and giving presentations. - Marketing 101 (knowing your audience) is part of the core contents of business studies. This becomes important when students develop products - it is important to know your audience and define target groups. - Entrepreneurship: most bachelor and master programmes in business studies ask students to do an internship. This does not only provide you with a first impression of the labour market related to your studies, but also makes it possible to forge new relationships and widen your personal network of business contacts for the time after graduation.
