May Book of the Month – Sahar Hashemi

Sahar Hashemi – “Start-Up Forever– How to Build a Start-Up Culture in a Big Company”

Our May Book of the Month is by serial entrepreneur, speaker and founder of Coffee Republic Sahar Hashemi. Sahar has been a popular and in demand speaker on the corporate circuit for over 10 years and in February 2019 she released her third book – Start Up Forever: How to Build a Start Up Culture in a Big Company

Chosen by the Financial Times as one of its Business Books of the Month in March, the book asks the questions – “how can we encourage innovative thinking” and “how can we be more agile?”. With so much disruptive change to keep up with businesses need to re-look at their cultures and how they can adapt.

Sahar Hashemi throws out the excuses that have previously stifled entrepreneurial behaviour in big companies. She believes big companies acting like start-ups is neither unattainable, nor complicated. Its simple, intuitive and in fact very human.

Copies of the book are available from Amazon.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
