As part of the University of Greenwich Big Picture Seminars, Geoffrey Hoodless gave a talk about his 30 years’ experience in the City as an employee, analyst, fund manager, insurer, and entrepreneur.
Geoffrey Hoodless, CEO, The Share Republic.com Limited said: “Entrepreneurship is about creating as well as funding a company. I was delighted to have been given the opportunity to talk about both sides to students. They represent the future both as potential company creators as well as investors. It is critical to equip them with as much tools, knowledge and inspiration as possible, so they can participate and contribute fully to society. We can call it financial education, but for us it just makes plain business sense.”
Alex McGrath, BA (Hons) Accounting & Finance, University of Greenwich wrote: “I am very keen on the investment industry, primarily within the markets. I’m just writing to you firstly to say thank you for a very insightful talk, and also because I am curious as to what you were going to talk about if we had enough time at the end – about choosing which companies to invest in? I’d love to hear your tips or views on what you have experienced. I have been signed up to the ShareRepublic.com for almost a month now and am enjoying it immensely. It’s a really easy platform to use and nicely laid out – I may enjoy it more if I make some money!”
