Have you ever thought about running your own business? 13 – 19 November is Global Entrepreneurship Week so come and be inspired by two entrepreneurs who are doing just that. They’ll tell you about how they’ve got to where they are and you’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions about their journey. The entrepreneurs are Becky Stark and Rhys Mwyn:
With a graduate Diploma in Foreign Languages for Business and a Distinction from the Institute of Linguists for French, Becky began her career seeking to maximise use of her language skills. Her first job was as an export assistant in a busy sales office. She went on to work for an international plastics company, gaining sales, new product development and technical experience, whilst still using her language skills for translation work and liaison with overseas offices. After a number of years in industry Becky began working as Export Manager for a company manufacturing consumer products. In 2005 Becky relocated to North Wales and decided to set up her own business – Stark Export Focus. In 2007 Becky became a Liveryman and was awarded the Freedom of the City of London.
Rhys Mwyn is a music manager, publisher and record label based in North Wales. He started hus business almost by accident - he’d been inspired by other music managers like Malcolm McLaren (Sex Pistols) and Andrew Loog Oldham (Rolling Stones) to get involved in managing pop groups, but his particular interest was in working with Welsh language acts. He managed Catatonia for the first two years, and that really helped him to keep the business thriving for the next few years. Now he has a ‘portfolio’ of activities, because running a record label in the age of free downloads doesn’t pay the bills so Rhys has diversified into becoming an archaeologist, writer and author. He is a qualified blue badge guide for Wales and his speciality is Welsh History and Culture.
