Robert ElliceSuccess and how to achieve it are among the topics of the University of Greenwich's latest free public lecture on Thursday 5 November.

Robert Ellice, Chief Executive of easyProperty, will give the talk, which is open to all. "The speech will focus on whether there really can be a recipe for success," he says. "Along the way, it will debunk some well-known theories about what made successful people successful, before concluding on what factors really lie behind success – and what this means for you as an entrepreneur."

Robert's long and successful career in the property market began when he was just 16. He was awarded the Who's Who Young Business Leader in 2008, and has been ranked as among the top two per cent of company directors under 35, a position he held for three years running. easyProperty, an online nationwide estate agency for the commercial and residential markets, is his latest venture.

The talk, Bill Gates' genius - and other false stories of success, takes place at the Greenwich Campus from 5pm. Registration is essential, with details below.

It is latest in the Big Picture seminar series, run by the university's Business School, in which high-profile and leading figures from media, commerce and industry share their tips and expertise. The events have proved to be hugely popular among university staff, students and the general public.
