Peter Sims is coming to Campus London to chat to us about his book “Little Bets”; a set of simple yet often counterintuitive experimental methods to explore and develop new ideas, in work and life.
Peter Sims is an entrepreneur, social entrepreneur, and award-winning author. He is founder & a ‘sir’ of The BLKSHP Enterprises (pronounced “black sheep,” not to be confused with “black shop,” “black ship,” or like phrase), and his latest book is Little Bets: How Breakthrough Ideas Emerge from Small Discoveries, which grew out of a five-year collaboration with faculty at Stanford’s Institute of Design (the d.school), as well as his previous work in venture capital with Summit Partners, including as part of the team that established Summit’s European Office in London. He was also the coauthor with Bill George of the best-seller True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership, a member ofGeneral Electric’s Innovation Advisory Panel, anInnosight Fellow, one of the “core influencers” advising and supporting #GivingTuesday, and cofounder ofFuse Corps, a social venture that places entrepreneurial leaders on year-long grassroots projects with mayors and governors to tackle some of America’s most pressing problems.
