The Talks on Entrepreneurial Leadership (TELL) were initiated by students of London Business School in 2009 to focus on European entrepreneurship. TELL offers inspiring talks for new and seasoned entrepreneurs and investors, and creates a forum for the exchange of ideas.
Creel Price (“The One Thing to Win at the Game of Business: Master the Art of Decisionship,” 2012) writes about London Business School’s ‘real-world’ approach to whetting the entrepreneurial drive may have led to the development of forums like TELL.
Entering its fifth season, TELL events are open to attendees at no cost. Contact the TELL administrative team 15 days before an event to obtain tickets. Each talk lasts about an hour, including the keynote speaker’s presentation (approximately 45 minutes) and a question and a question and answer period (about 15 minutes) thereafter. Attendees may get to know each other at the following network reception.
TELL events draw a wide a group of thinking individuals, including established entrepreneurs or those with an interest in entrepreneurship. Investors and students of the London Business School, its alumni and faculty, and other technology and enterprise leaders attend TELL events.
According to authors Rob Goffee and Gareth Jones (“Clever: Leading Your Smartest, Most Creative People,” 2009), TELL talks represent an essential forum in the fast-paced knowledge economy.
