From a top-notch corporate lawyer who knew nothing about retail to an entrepreneur who turned the Brits from tea lovers into coffee drinkers, Sahar Hashemi has a great story to share as a keynote speaker.
As founder of the UK’s first coffee bar chain, Coffee Republic, which she started with her brother Bobby in 1995 Sahar built it into one of the UK’s most recognised high street brands with 110 bars and a turnover of £30m. Sahar understands entrepreneurial behaviour to the core. Her deep experience in the corporate world starting her career in a city law firm and then seeing her first start-up grow into a big business and since speaking to over 400 big companies about what gets in the way of entrepreneurial behaviour in corporate culture.
She believes what makes start up culture different from corporate culture isn’t the stereotypical football tables and company hoodies. It’s the special connection start up employees have with the business they work in and the customers they serve. This isn't restricted to start-ups.
