Allan Gibb was an inspiration to the field of Entrepreneurship and Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) Development for over fifty years. His concept of Entrepreneurship was not solely focused on new business ventures and business growth but also upon the skills, attributes and behaviours of enterprising people in all kinds of organisations. These included universities, and his writing and teaching on the topic of the Entrepreneurial University was pioneering.

Allan’s work and influence spanned every continent. As a result, we have brought together an exciting group of panellists from Ireland, Australia, Thailand and the UK. We plan to host a virtual discussion session immediately following the panel debate for participants to engage and interact via zoom on the issues raised during the webinar.

You can send us your questions ahead of the webinar (by 19th October) in order that the panellists can consider them in advance. Send to
