At the morning event, SME owners heard from Philip on his personal business success, focusing on how to lead a business to successful growth.
Philip, who is the co-founder of award winning company ShredBank, also launched his latest book ‘Start to Lead’, which is the follow up to his Top 10 Amazon Best Selling book ‘Start to Grow’.
Speaking at the event, Chairman of the council’s Development Committee, Cllr Uel Mackin, said: “Philip has worked with the council’s Business Solutions Team on many occasions and it is great that he can join us to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016. His story and his success is truly commendable and many businesses can learn from his experience. His latest book offers great advice to businesses and essentially it is an entrepreneurs guide on how to grow a business.”
