Announcing the second in our new winter series of Esc Wednesdays. Click here to read our “What is an Esc Wednesday” page so you know what to expect and to see whether you would like to attend. Wednesday 1st December, from 6.00 pm, 7.30 pm start. Private bar above The Yorkshire Grey pub – London, WC1X 8PN.
Our special guests for the next Esc Wednesday are Josh Pull (ex-Investment Banker) and Will Orr-Ewing (never went anywhere near the city).
Josh and Will are the entrepreneurial duo behind a series of exciting education-focused business ventures.
Their first business is the extremely successful Keystone Tutors. They are also the team behind Chalkboard Learning and Dystalk. Josh escaped his job in the city a couple of years ago and hasn’t looked back. Will took a more direct line straight into building Keystone from uni.
Feel free to ask them about how they started their businesses, how they run their businesses, why they are excited to be working in the education sector, why they enjoy working on start-ups, what they think about the internet, what they think about gaming and learning, and anything else that springs to mind.
QUESTION & ANSWER:
After a short introduction from Josh and Will we will run a fast-paced and informal Q&A session. The challenge for our special guests is to answer 10 questions in 10 minutes before we open it up to the room to continue the discussion / questions.
Really looking forward to seeing you there.
Rob & Dom
