John Key success at entre FastTrack 1

John Key success at entre FastTrack 1

The first of four FastTrack sessions from entré was a real success, with John Key speaking on Wednesday 19th March. Over 400 students and interested industry representatives bustled into C1 from 5.30pm and within 15 minutes the theatre was packed. The excitement and anticipation of the audience was rewarded with an inspirational and informative evening. John Key spoke of his business experiences and, whilst outlining some of his thoughts for the future of New Zealand, gave advice for budding entrepreneurs. The evening was a fantastic success and FastTrack Manager, Ben Drake, felt that “John Key inspired everyday young people to give it a go in business and proved that anyone from any background is capable of successful entrepreneurship.”

entré’s FastTrack sessions have begun with widespread support and interest, which will only grow from here. They are thoroughly informative sessions which, as they progress, will become more interactive so attendees can make the most of the resources available and really get down to the fundamentals of developing their business ideas. These events are the perfect opportunity to ask questions and find out everything you want to know. They are also suitable for those who are just interested. See you at FastTrack #2, Wednesday 26th March where entré’s past winners are speaking, including Blikky and you can learn to “think like Richard Branson in less than 90 minutes.”
