Idle dreams of a great business

After March’s really successful Idler’s business course, there’s another chance to become the successful entrepreneur you always thought you could be. The stress of the whole thing, where you learn about spread sheets and the art of negotiation, will be softened and soothed by lashings of free gin. Yes, this is Business for Bohemians. Learn the easy way with the Idler Academy. A host of brilliant business people have been gathered, lets not call them a swarm, and after eight evening workshops you will learn enough to spread your wings and surge forth in the land of Great Ideas. Someone called Angela who did the last course says: “The speakers were phenomenal. Having access to them and the wealth of information, experience, and resources which they offered was incredibly enlightening, encouraging, empowering, energising, and yes, entertaining.” Brilliant guest speakers include James Reed, chairman of Reed, Britain’s biggest recruitment agency; Tony Elliot, founder of Time Out and the Time Out group, which from small beginnings in the sixties counter-culture has grown to a worldwide brand; Richard Wharton, who is the co-founder of Office shoes, which he built up from nothing, and Nigel House, co-founder of Rough Trade Shops, which now has branches in London, Nottingham and Brooklyn, NY. Business for Bohemians kicks off on 24th September at The Idler Academy. idler
