Rob Hersov - serial entrepreneur

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 23 November 2009.

Rob Hersov liked one of his latest investments so much he married the brains behind it.

Hersov, a prolific entrepreneur, saw Medikidz go live at the tail end of the summer. He backed the business and married its co-founder, Dr Kate Hersov.

A website offering both children and their parents advice on spotting health symptoms and how to live a healthy lifestyle, Medikidz has taken the health education world by storm.

Contribution Currency - Penny Power

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Tuesday, 17 November 2009.

I am now going to take you deep inside the world of social networks. As I have said throughout, the technology is just the enabler. Once you understand the context of what is happening and the opportunities for you to create a source of income through your activities, the technology will purely be a medium through which you achieve your desired result. Do not get hung up on the technology, although you must become its master.

A Case for Renewal of Employee Engagement

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 11 November 2009.

With 2009 coming to a close (thank goodness!) and talk of the Great Recession crawling to its inevitable end, it is finally time to get out of our War Rooms and get on with the job of preparing for potential prosperity again.

The view from the Board Room is a precarious one, fraught lately with too many discussions about cutting costs, removing overhead, making jobs redundant, whilst at the same time scurrying to find new revenue streams and reinvigorating sales opportunities in a market landscape changed forever by credit crunches, price wars and the corpses of companies gone into administration. 

Jonathan Kendrick - ROK Group

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 09 November 2009.

Jonathan Kendrick was a bit of a rebel in his youth. Expelled from his Wolverhampton school for wrecking the set of the school play at the age of just 15, this entrepreneur has certainly not let the lack of a formal education get in the way of making tens of millions.

Currently the Chairman and founder of ROK Group, the mobile entertainment giant, Kendrick now spends his spare time pondering which super car from his garage to drive to work. Will it be one of his Aston Martins, the Range Rover or one of his two  superlimo Maybachs? He’s come some way since trashing the school play...

A Changing World - The Individual Capitalist - Penny Power

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Wednesday, 04 November 2009.

In December 2008, while I was preparing my mind to start writing this book, I was gathering thoughts, contacts, ideas and inspiration. I heard Julie Meyer of Ariadne Capital, and founder of First Tuesday, talk about ‘individual capitalism’. It was the first time I had heard this phrase and I loved it; a spine-tingling moment that summed up exactly what the future is for us all. As I meet people socially and in business and when I speak to the self-employed or the corporate employee, one theme I consistently hear is ‘I want to be in control of my life and I want to be myself.’ It is tough to share your personality and be yourself when you represent a brand that is not yours, and worse still when you represent a company that does not treat people as you would like to treat them. This period of economic history will be marked by the rise of the individual.

50p tax will harm entrepreneurs, jobs and the economy

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 02 November 2009.

It feels like we’re in the 1970s again. Public sector strikes, warnings from the IMF that Britain must cut debt and pundits calling the end of Labour’s grip on power.

But, for many entrepreneurs there’s one issue that takes us back to an era of punk rock and avocado bathroom suites more than any. The prospect of a 50p tax hike for those earning more than £150,000 has raised that constant of the 1970s – an imminent exodus of leading talent to more favourable tax regimes abroad has been threatened ever since Chancellor Alistair Darling announced the policy in April.

Ideas for better lemon squeezing

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 19 October 2009.

In the last ten years of working with independent businesses I’ve learned the value of lemon-squeezing. Does that make this a cookery show or a business blog? Well, I guess a bit of both. I use “lemon-squeezing” to describe getting more value out of your existing business and existing customer base. And, yes, it’s based on a cooking observation. Most people, when they add lemon juice to a dish, will tend to do the following:

Take a lemon. Slice it. Squeeze one half – partially. Discard. Take second, unsqueezed half, wrap in clingfilm (this is optional), and place in back of fridge. Open fridge two weeks later to discover mouldering piece of lemon and discard, unsqueezed.

Believe

Written by EntrepreneurCountry Global on Monday, 19 October 2009.

Done and dusted with clinical efficiency, and only one minor, forgivable blip in Ukraine (it must be hard to focus whilst trying to dodge flares and missiles). England go to South Africa with their best ever qualifying performance. The England team is equipped with more strength, skill, and pace than ever before. Fabio Capello is proving his credentials and, as well as possessing the all important tactical skills, he looks to be a great man manager. I've got a good feeling about 2010, and come the summer next year I'm certain that the whole country (including those who wouldn't normally go anywhere near a football match) will be carried along with the excitement of the tournament.

Done Deal

Written by Thomas A. Stewart on Friday, 16 October 2009.

How sad that Bruce Wasserstein died just as it appears that the M&A market is heating up again. I got to know Bruce when I was editing Harvard Business Review; with one of my colleagues, Gardiner Morse, I produced one of HBR’s trademark in-depth interviews, published in January 2008.
