Since the beginning of January, Year 10 have been investigating how the business environment impacts the decision whether or not to start up your own business. As part of the LAT Working with Businesses Initiative, Year 10 Business were fortunate to hear how these different factors have impacted a local, existing business: Mobile Bar Hire Ltd. This topic forms a fundamental part of their first Business coursework unit, and being able to see and understand how these complex topics impact an existing business, will give their coursework an extra edge.
Our guest speaker, Rags Sandhu, Director of Mobile Bar Hire Ltd, spoke to students about what affected his decision to start up his own business, and the obstacles he had to overcome.
