Our business seminar yesterday (12/03) at the Winchester School of Art Re:Work fair was well received! Clinic Consultant and Southampton alumnus Renold Tang delivered two seminars on “Running Your Own Business (Part 1)” and “Starting Your Own Business: The Mechanics (Part 2)” to 15 entreprenueric art students. Drawing from his knowledge as a Fellow Chartered Accountant and experience as an entrepreneur, Renold’s lecture covered topics ranging from ‘different types of business vehicles’ and ‘important clauses to include in a shareholders agreement’ to the sacrifice and self-discipline required to start a business.
Feedback from the audience were largely positive, with audience praising the interactiveness of the seminar.
Overall, the seminars were given a rating of 88% by the attendees, with good marks for all criteria including “Info about seminar”, “Quality of service”, “Quality of advice”, and “Treatment by staff”. and “Sufficient amount of time”.
