Executive Touch point out that schools should get pupils excited about entrepreneurship and focus on graduating doers, makers and ‘out of the box’ thinkers. Instead, school is very theoretical and lacks practical experience that prepares for a successful future. “It would be great to see more projects happening to encourage entrepreneurship and then based on that practical experience, kids can learn about the relevant administration, finance, risk evaluation and the positive impact of entrepreneurship on Britain’s economy,” say Executive Touch. Pulitzer Prize winner and author Thomas Friedman shares this opinion and says, having students graduate ‘innovation ready’ means they have the skills and mind-set to critical-thinking, communication and collaboration skills that help them invent their own careers.
Customer service allows a business to stay connected with its customers and to receive valuable feedback. Without this ongoing connection, most businesses fail to remain viable.

The job marketing is shifting, with more young professionals looking to become successful entrepreneurs. Therefore, Executive Touch believes it’s important to understand what makes an entrepreneur successful. Yes a product is important, but it’s the execution of bringing that idea to the market and developing mannerisms that will be key in the success of the product and the entrepreneur. With extensive studies of successful entrepreneurs highlighting the same traits, Executive Touch feel that the characteristics are just as important in the success of the product as the product itself.
Executive Touch believe that when it comes to accomplishing something, nothing works better than remaining committed to a vision and developing a solid plan for the upcoming year. Planning is particularly important as running a business can be unpredictable, so it is important to develop a flexible plan that can be adapted if things change, but ultimately has one goal in mind. The firm believes that their ability to innovate and plan for the future is what has made them a success.
