On Monday evening I attended a fascinating event put on by the British Library. Attendees were given the chance to quiz a panel of internet icons who have created huge, very different, global brands.
The panel included:
- Justine Roberts, founder and CEO of Mumsnet
- Ning Li, Co-founder and CEO MADE.com
- Renaud Visage, Co-founder of Eventbrite
- Moderated by Nadine Dereza, Journalist and TV Broadcaster
The video is now available and well worth watching, to gain an insight in to how different background and approaches have led to success.
In the meantime, here were a few of the best quotes from the night:
One final note. I've always been a huge advocate of the British Library. It is a fantastic resource for start-ups and small business, and anyone who just wants to gain a better understanding of their subject matter. Be sure to check out their events page here: http://www.bl.uk/events
