Giving organisations the power to fight off unicorns and survive and thrive with Gareth Bullen & Jamil Ahmed – 8th April 2016

So what is intrapreneurship and how can it improve your business performance and stop talented people leaving your organisation? My guests are business transformation expert Gareth Bullen and the UK thought leader on Intrapreneurship, Jamil Ahmed who work together at the Centre for Enterprise, helping organisations increase engagement, performance, customer service and innovation through building energising, intrapreneurial cultures. During this show, they will help us understand it and explain how disruption is leading to a greater need for intrapreneurship and engagement. Also, the fascinating story of how they met and how their different strengths and backgrounds make their business more successful. In addition we will discuss why they are building an organisation in a once troubled part of the United Kingdom (Harehills, Leeds) and their vision of bringing wealth and opportunity to it. Join us to learn about intrapreneurship and how you can benefit.
