Entrepreneurs Inspired at Talbot Heath School

THE businessman who turned £90 into a £30m airline inspired business people at an event in Bournemouth. Jack Romero spoke to a business seminar and networking event at Talbot Heath School. 
He told how he fled Beirut in the Civil War in 1979 with £90 to his name. He went on to start his own airline, which he sold nearly 30 years after his arrival in Britain for £30m. He told his audience: “There is a solution to challenges in business. Determination is key. Always try and think outside the box and have a clear vision of where you want your business to be. ”

Samantha Acton, award-winning owner of Bournemouth based Domestic Angels, said: “Listening to Jack has totally reinforced my own personal beliefs on how one should conduct a business, staying true to one’s personal values which will allow you and your business to grow.”

Angharad Holloway, head at Talbot Heath School, said the event was a “huge success”. She said: “The school runs its own entrepreneurial programme and we are looking forward to welcoming many more Bournemouth businesses to our school in the future.”

Mr Romero said he was inspired by Richard Branson’s idea of introducing entrepreneurship into school curriculums.
