Why is this Seminar Relevant?

Luck is often seen as a commodity in large demand and short supply. Often deemed as a brilliant strategist in military history, Napoleon was once asked whether he preferred courageous generals or brilliant generals. His reply was that he preferred lucky generals. Labeling something as being lucky takes a successful outcome and attributes it to divine intervention of the heavenly realms. While this tends to trivialize the unique role of the individual, our experience tells us that luck and lucky break are often more credible claims for success.


The question for this seminar is: “What has luck got to do with entrepreneurship?” Being an entrepreneurship means confronting a world of uncertainties and more often than not, trying to make sense of uncontrollable outcomes.


If we succeed, is it because of luck? If we fail, is it because we are unlucky?

Can we ignore luck? Should we be superstitiously subscribing to luck on all accounts?  

If luck is key, can we understand how luck operates so that we may be lucky?

Is lucky just having the presence of mind to see an opportunity and acting on it? 


Join us to hear from a man who believes in opportunities as he shares his perspectives on the above ”lucky” questions and what lessons life taught him. You will discover for yourself if luck indeed play a pivotal role in this young entrepreneur’s journey.
