Nesta's Creative Economy & Culture Committee
Proud and privileged to be a part of this. A major opportunity to influence the future for this country. As a part of the creative economy board we work together to help grow the creative economy and help arts and cultural organisations thrive in a time of austerity.
This means we have to showcase and put a spotlight on the value of the creative economy, influence policies to help it grow, and help arts and cultural organisations thrive by making the most of digital technologies and new funding sources.
The Enterprise 100
Nicole has been appointed part of London Business School's Enterprise 100 initiative and the Entrepreneurs Club for the next 12 months.
"A major focus for me is to identify and support fresh talent and new business. It's particularly important for me because it keeps me and my own clients alive to the incredible possibility of what's next." - Nicole Yershon
This appointment allows Nicole to challenge, inspire and bring in objective advice to those just starting out and as they evolve connect them to lessons learned as well greater opportunity beyond their own networks.
Two words that struck a chord with me - but for different reasons. I’ve always loved music and I’ve never been diplomatic. So it’s been a real honour that Shain & Jordi have invited me onto the board. They’ve built the business from a dream into a reality over the last 5 years.
Making music matter and turning it into significant value for cities and societies - creating a whole new currency. I can’t wait to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in.
“We believe your addition to the Board will bring many good things, particularly different analytical angles to develop our vision.”
Shain Shapiro CEO
BIBA VENTURE PARTNERS
The timing has never been more right.There’s huge pressure on every corporation to find the skills, the innovations, the cost savings, the differentiators and arrive at smarter ways to operate. These days it’s non-negotiable if they are to compete and gain competitive advantage.
BIBA VP helps corporate businesses identify and work with these scarce resources - the partners that can make that happen. That resource will come from the small, the niche, the expert, the agile and innovative start ups and smart businesses. They are typically insight driven, data/digitally savvy and highly innovative businesses. London is a real powerhouse for such resources. I’m genuinely thrilled to be leading the effort in bringing all of these things together and building mutual benefit for both parties.
BIBA Venture Partners is designed to spark that value between partners. They certainly inspired me. I’m so proud to be working as the London Associate Partner to develop collaboration between corporations and startups.
BCC INTERNATIONAL SPEAKERS
I love to make things happen. I find a way - especially when everyone says that something can’t be done. In a little over a year I’ve started 4 businesses, written a #1 bestselling book and launched a series of courses. Not surprisingly this story is what ignites my passion and I love to speak about what I’ve learned. It’s meant I get to turn my passions into inspiration for others and explain why and how I turn all the disruption around us into advantage.
And now a new chapter. This last 18 months has been a whirlwind of travelling, learning and even more speaking. So, to add yet more energy to the mix I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be represented exclusively (and globally) by BCC speakers;
