Ideal for students at any level, the chapters of this book invite you to ponder upon your reading through a series of ‘reflective practice’ activities. These, along with case studies, clearly defined chapter objectives, reflections, role-play activities and experiential exercises, allow you to both think actively about themes, concepts and issues and then apply them to a number of suggested scenarios. Perfect preparation for the up-and-coming entrepreneur!
