Speaker(s): James Caan
Chair: Saul Estrin

Recorded on 21 October 2010 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

A recession can uncover some great entrepreneurial talent and surprising opportunities. The speakers will explore how we can make the UK more entrepreneurial, what are the key components in creating a successful business, the major pitfalls and what are the emerging sectors for people to capitalise on. They will also debate whether an entrepreneurship can be taught or is a part of genetic make up. James Caan is one of the UK's most successful and dynamic entrepreneurs. He is now CEO of private equity company, Hamilton Bradshaw, and famous panellist on BBC's Dragons' Den. Saul Estrin is head of the Department of Management, LSE.
