The Effective Entrepreneur
This interactive talk is aimed at students and startups and is essentially a talk about  'How to not fail in business.' In a world where the definition of a job is constantly evolving and technology is disrupting the 'employed' status more rapidly than ever, this presentation and talk will give you greater insight into what is currently relevant and may assist you in future career choices. You will explore and understand the common ground of employment and entrepreneurship. Examine what it takes to be an entrepreneur and whether or not you have those qualities.

Wandsworth Young Chamber was launched at Roehampton University on the 27th September 2017 and is a part of Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce focusing on the business interests of Wandsworth's younger generation as they leave schools, colleges and Universities.

Young Chamber Aims:

The aim of the Young Chamber is to help younger members of society to become inspired, make their own local business connections and through this develop business mentoring and work placement opportunities with other Wandsworth Chamber Members' businesses.

How we will deliver:

Wandsworth Chamber will run a series of events for Young Chamber members, delivering useful business information and opportunities to network and develop business contacts throughout the borough. We will work with South Thames College's 'Take One' programme to encourage employers to work with young people.

How to join Wandsworth Young Chamber:

Simply visit the Wandsworth Chamber website and register brief details. The age range to be a Young Chamber Member is between 16 to 25(ish). Young Chamber members would typically be students, young start-up entrepreneurs and employed business people.

Business wanting to support the Young Chamber:

We encourage all local businesses to support the aims of our Young Chamber through sponsorship, hosting events and by attending Young Chamber events and meeting and encouraging our younger generation. They have so much to offer and perhaps a fresh outlook and approach may be mutually beneficial to your business.
