Finally I’m back here in Edgar’s Creative. It has been almost 1 year or so without a single post. But I’ve been busy elsewhere, and meanwhile attending here and there some other venues not that much worth the time spent…

Anyway it is always good and proper to post on Cultural issues. And specially when that is in connection with business acumen as in the following video that I recently watched at the Financial Times website. It is about precisely a connection between business and the Film and performing Arts industries in the United Kingdom. This economic sector with all of the creative industries sectors represents 8% of all business revenues from the services sector in the UK; it is significant because we’re talking about one of the countries (perhaps the most important European Country in this area) with the most important and competitive services sector.

It features Lord Puttnam, a Film producer, and in the talk with FT’s Business School reporter Jonathan Moules he tells us about the broad opportunities for enterpreneurship in these sectors, how students fresh from Business Schools should consider seriously work and venture in there, and the main topics of his work in the EMBA at Ashridge Business School.
