The Final Word

What advice would you give to an entrepreneur entering your industry?

Adam Pickford 
Sales Director, Ontic
“Safety is critical – whether that is the safety of your people or the safety of the equipment you are working on, there is no room for error in the aerospace industry. Customer relationships are also vital. The global industry is worth billions, but you need to nurture relationships and collaborate to be a true success.”   

Edward Verbakel   
CEO, VB   
“Collaborate and be of added value. In order to be considered relevant, scale is required. Today’s demand for growing solutions is substantial, and to meet that demand we must collaborate. We founded Atrium Agri to share knowledge and benefit from economies of scale. At VB we like to work together! Alone you may go faster, but together you will reach further!”

Jamal Sultan Al Mohammadi  
Director of Sales and Marketing, Qatar Post
“I would advise an entrepreneur to give traditional post companies like us the opportunity to help them through our dedication, service ethic, and experience.” 

Nikhil Patil  
CEO, GO Plc 
“You are only as strong and capable as the team you surround yourself with. Build a team with the same ideals, an aligned purpose, same drive and stamina – a team you enjoy hanging out with as much as you enjoy working with. Relationships are key. This should be the first priority. From a business perspective, don’t be afraid to be bold, to fail fast, learn and move on.”
