(This talk was moved from February ask Mike was unable to deliver the talk then due to illness.)

Mike Gatward will be presenting Learning to Launch – Stop failing. Start launching. Based on the eBook of the same name by Fred Rivett and Mike Gatward (

Here's the introduction to the eBook upon which Mike's talk is based:

After years failing to launch a number of different side projects we finally decided something needed to change. We challenged ourselves to launch six projects in six months. It would be a way for us to rapidly learn what we were doing wrong, and what we needed to do to fix it. Twelve months on, we've now got a total of 7 launches under our belt and we've learnt a lot.

Our venue is
The United Brethren pub
1 New Writtle Street

Here is the exact location on Google Maps:

We'll meet in the main bar before 7:30 and move through to the meeting room about 7:50, with the talk starting shortly after.
