Sahar Hashemi to co-chair Scale-Up Taskforce by UK Business Minister
Acclaimed Global Topspeaker and world-famous co-founder of UK’s Coffee Republic Sahar Hashemi is highly in favour of change management, entrepreneurial leadership and employee engagement and not only advocates these tools in her lively and entertaining keynotes but also in her bestselling books on entrepreneurship.
So it’s no wonder that the internationally recognised speaker seized the unique opportunity to co-chair the regular meetings of UK’s new Scale-up Taskforce alongside UK Minister for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Margot James, and other illustrious members such as the Managing Director of Google UK, Ronan Harris, or the Executive Director of Goldman Sachs, Charlotte Keenan, in order to help businesses all over the country compete and prosper in a global environment.
Bringing together investors, local bodies and entrepreneurs is only one of the many objectives, the Scale-up Taskforce has set for itself, however. According to Sahar Hashemi, for the UK to become a scale-up nation is the ultimate goal. Supporting entrepreneurs, who had the guts and perseverance to start a business in the first place, in their endeavour to grow therefore is a great concern of Sahar’s.
And being a very successful entrepreneur and original thinker herself, former lawyer Sahar Hashemi definitely has the kind of expertise required to assist UK’s small businesses on their road to success. Furthermore, the Global Topspeaker is exactly the right person to evoke the “can do” spirit necessary to remove barriers and to create the much needed ecosystem for entrepreneurs to capitalise on the opportunities provided by today’s networked world.
