Dougal Shaw, BBC: CEO Stories

Join Dougal Shaw, who reports entrepreneurship stories for the BBC, for a couple of hours on Tuesday 13th February 2024 (4 – 6pm) to explore CEO stories from around the UK, at this Cambridge Network event.

In his regular BBC interviews Dougal Shaw uncovers the ways CEOs tick, shares their stories and their best lessons learned in bitesize chats. Since 2019, he has interviewed entrepreneurs from the worlds of marketing, drones, games companies, skincare, language tech and many others. He’s talked to big name brands such as Pearl + Dean, HomeServe, Saatchi and Saatchi to small businesses such as Child’s Farm and Humble Crumble extracting key points from their careers so far that they’d like to pass on.

His entrepreneurship series, CEO Secrets, has now become a book and we’re delighted to welcome Dougal to share some of the stories and his observations of some of the most entrepreneurial CEOs in the UK.

Want to know what CEO’s think? Come along and get some inspiration for your own journey!
