Pat Falvey, who has just returned from his well publicized expedition to the Himalaya with a group of Irish Celebrities who were each given a task to push themselves Beyond their Endurance to achieve a task that most would have said would be impossible to achieve. Pat flew into Cork City to presented a lecture to an enthusiastic group of over a 100 entrepreneurial students at Cork University in Ireland who are members of E&S.
His lecture on succeeding in a recession was based on his acclaimed presentation on Leadership and the attributes of success. "The Phycology Of Success" which focus on the ability for those with aspirations to succeed as a entrepreneur in a challenging and changing world.
His presentation focused on self belief, having a vision the ability of positive attitude in a changing environment. He spoke about the creation of new opportunities for those that seek them in particular youn g blood with dreams. He spoke on the negativity besetting those that see no future and suggested we look at the good the recession will bring and that we should look at our present status in time as a period of pre-boom period we now find ourselves in that there at many opportunities for young enthusiastic entrepreneurs that believe also his message to the young audience was not to see failure as an end game but to see mistakes as a opportunity to learn.
His parting advice was to be confident no matter what life throws at you and don't give up on ones dreams and to have a go-for-it attitude.
