The Social Sciences department’s new Entrepreneurship Society hosted their first event last week - an inspiring talk by Tim Roupell.
Tim started Daily Bread, a wholesale sandwich business, from scratch in 1986, making the sandwiches himself and selling them to offices from a basket. Twenty three years later Tim sold Daily Bread as a £14 million a year company employing 230 people. Since selling the business Tim has focused much of his time on helping other budding young entrepreneurs and has written a book entitled ‘Bread and Butter, lessons learnt building a successful business from scratch’.
Tim shared his experience of business including the highs and lows, and outlined how his values influenced his approach to running his business. This was an excellent talk to launch our new society and we were very grateful to Tim for giving up his time to speak to us.
