Entrepreneurism

“The Birth of an Orchestra”

(Please cut and paste to use as copy for advertising this talk)

In 1997, QJ founded and launched a professional symphony orchestra.

This is the fascinating story of how QJ turned his idea into reality: not the everyday story of entrepreneurism you’d have heard a million times before!

In his intense journey of passion, bloody-mindedness, financial foolhardiness, and grim determination to take on the Arts Sector in all its might, QJ engages us in a unique journey that would make many a hardened entrepreneur question why they do what they do!

Despite the orchestra’s undeniable success, we also learn why such a dinosaur of the cultural landscape of Britain is doomed, and why, despite the best of intentions, the reaching of wider and more culturally diverse audiences is the holy grail!
