Stephen Fear, Managing Director of the Fear Group, will deliver a lecture entitled; 'Growing your Business and Exporting to Latin America and the USA' as part of the Distinguished Executive Address Series.
Stephen Fear, the self-made multimillionaire and Entrepreneur in Residence at the British Library discusses how to successfully grow your business and the best ways of exporting to Latin America and the USA, using real-life examples to advise, motivate and inspire.
He will start by giving a brief background on himself and how he achieved his monumental success. He will then focus on the values of exporting to Latin America and the USA, using real-life examples and first hand experiences. Stephen will also be providing insights on how to grow your business and will be answering questions from the audience.
Fear, 59, first went into business at the age 15 after reading an article in the Financial Times on his paper-round about a new legislation that would affect the way industrial ovens were cleaned. Stephen then used the phone-box on the council estate where he grew up in Bristol and persuaded an American firm to send over its oven products for him to sell in the UK. Before he knew it, Stephen was trading with some of the largest brands in catering.
Stephen, MD and founder of The Fear Group (http://www.feargroup.com/), is now a hugely successfully self-made multimillionaire and entrepreneur who runs over 70 companies with his son, Leon Fear. His investments cross multiple sectors, including property, green technology, IT, care homes, hotels and manufacturing.
Fear is also currently the Entrepreneur in Residence at the British Library, a highly respected position which was previously held by the late Dame Anita Roddick and more recently the former Dragon's Den panellist Rachel Elnaugh. Stephen Fear is also very active in charity work, including being a patron for the organisation Heropreneurs.
