      Understanding entrepreneurs using MBTI type John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership, OPP Recorded: Apr 19 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • Entrepreneurs contribute significantly to the world economy; the new businesses they create can drive innovation and will often result in the formation of new jobs. Yet almost 60% of UK businesses will fail within 5 years. New research from OPP shows the strengths, and possible blind spots, that people of each type will typically have when operating as entrepreneurs. If entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs are aware of these, it can give them a head start.

      John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, will present the results of the research, showing how MBTI type relates to your entrepreneurial orientation, and sharing tools for you to work out just how entrepreneurial your own (or your client’s) organisation is. He will also illustrate the likely strengths of each type as an entrepreneur – and things that they should watch out for.
