The School of Hard Knocks for Stressed Business People and Reluctant Entrepreneurs

This is a business club conducted by Sharrock Pitman Legal and The Reluctant Entrepreneur. It is open to all owners, managers, and board members of businesses and not for profit organisations, no matter their industry or the size or type of business.

Meetings are held quarterly, with keynote business speakers, discussion groups, business book reviews, handouts and legal spotlights. For a snippet of what takes place, view this short video clip.

The School of Hard Knocks is a hands on, very practical club. The aim is for local enterprises to improve and be successful. We want leaders of enterprises to learn from one another and to pick up on ideas from others who are outside their own industry and business experience and who might have quite different perspectives. As a leader of an enterprise, you are warmly invited to attend any of our business club meetings.
