As part of being shortlisted for the 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards, Q1 Scientifics, Louise Grubb, travelled to Boston to partake in the annual CEO’s Retreat.
Entrepreneur of the Year current and former finalists are brought on a CEO’s Retreat which is an opportunity to mix with your peers in an atmosphere of learning and cooperation. “As a finalist, you enter into a group – the alumni – with all the former finalists and what that has given me is access to a group of people where there’s absolutely no negativity, it’s just all ‘can do’. I was in Boston with the group and we got lectures from the CEO of Trip Advisor, the CEO of Hubspot. We went to Harvard, we went to MIT. And all the time, there was this really stimulating conversation. No matter what area of business you’re in, there was this total positivity of growing business, how do we make it bigger and better.”
