The Global Entrepreneurship Congress

The Global Entrepreneur's Congress is a worldwide celebration of innovation, aspiration and above all thriving entrepreneurship, right here in the UK. So what better way to travel to the event in Liverpool than by bringing together an inspirational group of businesspersons on a special Virgin Train - the Entrepreneur Express!
Today, as well as meeting with Virgin Unite's international 24902 Community of forward-thinking entrepreneurs, I am keen to talk to our Virgin Media Pioneers young entrepreneur community, especially about the Youth Investment Fund, which aims to get the UK Government to provide start-up funds for aspiring entrepreneurs. Also looking forward to hearing from some Branson Centre entrepreneurs brimming with good ideas, plus some old and new faces along the carriages.
At the Congress we will meet a lot of entrepreneurs there and I will talk about what I wish I'd known earlier in my career, and the will to win in business.
Speaking of the will to win, I hear there's a big local derby football match in Liverpool tonight? Good luck to both teams, I'll be back down in London before kick-off!
