I had a very interesting and enjoyable morning at Birmingham Business School, judging proposals from PhD students to deal with real life projects for a local social enterprise. The students came from a variety of subject areas, with little business background. After their week’s entrepreneurship school, they were able to research and present their proposals, and did so very well.
Apparently, from feedback over lunch, I was the “nasty” one of the judges. And there was me, thinking I was being restrained!
