David gave a business development presentation at Young Africa Botswana to the ‘Futuremakers’ group of young creative entrepreneurs.
His presentation about creative business development was followed by a discussion about business techniques and models. This became an interactive workshop event and David also answered questions from the young creative entrepreneurs.
The discussion included marketing, the Freemium business model, market research, business strategy, innovation and other business issues.
“David’s ability to communicate complex business approaches in a diligent and engaging manner was much appreciated by all the youth entrepreneurs present at the workshop. His use of examples taken from existing youth businesses represented at the workshop, allowed for better contextualization of how things work on an international level yet from a micro business perspective. This in turn made the workshop participants feel included, inspired & motivated enough to take on new challenges with the newly found knowledge shared by Mr Parrish.”

“Thank you for sharing your incredible insights with the Future Makers team. I have since made effort to read you book ‘T-Shirts and Suits’. The book is an absolute amazing read and relevant to local entrepreneurs in every category. Thank you for sharing this entrepreneurial ‘Bible’ with us and people across the world.”
