Anita Roddick gave an enthralling presentation entitled Commerce with a conscience: can business deliver social change, as part of our ‘Inspiring Entrepreneurs’ series.
She had some really wacky slides and started off with HOMO-ECONOMICUS+HOMO CONSUMICUS = HOMO-SCREWEDUPICUS
Earlier on in the day I met John Bird the founder of the Big Issue who was using one of our rooms for a live online forum session on the Real Business website.
One of the great things about my job is meeting people who are making business successes in the most unlikely places. How abut Dee Wright whose business card describes her as ‘Lice Assassin’. She is the founder of The Hairforce, and has managed to make dealing with hair lice sexy.
