Lecture by Brett Butler-Smythe from 'The Apprentice'
  • Lecture Theatre 1, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University

Save event

Plymouth resident Brett Butler-Smythe survived ten weeks in The Apprentice thanks to his tactical approach to tasks and his team-player ethic.

Described by Lord Sugar as 'an honourable man' Brett is 'determined to succeed' with his business continuing with the original business plan that he submitted to Lord Sugar.

In late 2015 he launched his new construction business, Pro Build Southwest; a newly formed property services company and we talk to him about progress and plans over one year on. 

Brett will discuss his entrepreneurial journey, his experiences on The Apprentice, business lessons and plans for the future.

Seating is limited for this talk and registration is essential.
