On Wednesday, 15 November, four panellists took to the stage at UniSC Moreton Bay campus to delve deep into the core of entrepreneurship and navigating the entrepreneurial voyage.
Joined by 55 guests, the esteemed panel shared their varied experiences, insights and tales from their founder’s journey, and engaged in an interactive dialogue providing their diverse perspectives on pivotal aspects of founding and scaling a business.
Topics explored included:
Led by the Master of Ceremony, Aaron Birkby, Co-Founder and CEO of Tribe Global Ventures, his key takeaways from the 90-minute panel were:
Observing the answers from all the panel members, there is a clear intentionality to their decision-making and actions, including the work they put in to improve themselves.
Read books, listen to podcasts, and most importantly, take notes and store them in a way that you can convert them into action
Focus on what you can control
Successful entrepreneurs have a high inner locus of control, but it needs to be directed at what we can influence, not on fighting externalities
To reframe anxiety and imposter syndrome into a reason to take massive action
During the panel discussion, and as Aaron identified above, a key takeaway echoed across most members of the panel was to consume as much information as possible, whether this be by books (including audiobooks) or podcasts.
Vu also added his words of advice which is to not just "consume" the content, but also talk about it, whether that be with a colleague, partner or friend.
Ash also shared this sentiment and discussed that she's in a "Book Club" at her work where they talk about and share resources that they find helpful.
The below resources are highly recommended by the Panel:
