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.
Sahar Hashemi was the founder of Coffee Republic, the UK’s first US-style coffee bar chain, and popular choice of speaker on themes such as entrepreneurship and business start-ups. With her brother Bobby, she gave up her career as a lawyer in London and staked everything on a dream and made Coffee Republic one of the leading players in the coffee revolution that transformed the UK high street.
It grew into one of the UK’s most recognised high street brands with 110 bars and a turnover of £30m.
