Webinar for Diverse Entrepreneurs

Why join the Webinar?

Integration and conformity to the norm are no longer the best way forward in business. In these unprecedented times of remote working, and the “new normal”, diverse entrepreneurs are demonstrating the adaptability and innovation necessary to prosper under conditions that drive traditional businesses to the wall.

In this webinar, we uncover the secrets of the “immigrant mindset”, as championed by renowned business author Glenn Llopis in his article for globally respected Harvard Business Review.

In his article Llopis, himself a Cuban American, describes the typical attributes of entrepreneurs starting a life and a business beyond their native shores: pioneers who stay on their toes and see opportunities everywhere, while building a lasting legacy. This killer combination of agility and responsiveness, fused with the determination to fulfil a long-term plan, is just what drove Pierre Morad Omidyar, an immigrant from France, to revolutionise e-commerce by founding eBay, and Greek American Peter M. Nicholas to build Boston Scientific, which now employs over 25,000 people. In fact, Forbes Magazine reveals that 40% of Fortune 500 companies are founded by immigrants or their children, including Google, McDonalds, Pfizer and eBay.

We need new skills and a fresh mindset for a changing business arena.

We will focus on the 3 strong legs every business needs to succeed:


Leaders realise the truth in the idea that staff is a company’s biggest asset. Loyal, happy employees infuse a business with strength from within.

Company culture is shaped by how you hire and retain talent, training, policies on mental health, etc.


Customer service is no longer enough, we should be completely customer-centred.

To build loyalty and drive sales, it’s all about creating amazing customer experiences.



You’re doing it for yourself and doing it your way, but collaborations need not mean compromising your individuality or your innovation.

Wisely chosen mentors, partners, supply chain, networking groups and more can all add up to the help you need to thrive.
