This is the perfect opportunity to hear first-hand accounts from successful entrepreneurs. The Bettany Centre Entrepreneurship Speaker Series gives you the chance to hear from a variety of entrepreneurs from across a range of industries.

The speakers will give you an insight in to their journey, identifying their successes and any mistakes that they may have made along their way. You will also be given the opportunity to ask questions, allowing you to delve even further in to the backstory of these well-established entrepreneurs.

Attending these events will provide you with a great chance to network with like-minded individuals who share your passion for entrepreneurship.

The events are entirely free of charge and refreshments are supplied (face-to-face events only).

All of our Speaker Series events take place at 18:00 on Thursday evenings in November and February. Our current intention is that the November events will be ran online and the February events will be ran at Cranfield campus (subject to Government and University guidance).
