|ICSB Bulletin: August 2012
Welcome to the August 2012 edition of the ICSB Bulletin. The ICSB Bulletin has been established to capture the major news stories of the past month.
For those of you about to begin a new academic year, may I wish you every success with your work. Entrepreneurship Education is going through a time of significant growth and change, and the work of ICSB is to support you in developing your resources and capabilities to meet any new challenges that you might be facing. To ensure that we can tailor our activities highly effectively, may I ask you to take just 2 minutes to complete the short online survey which is shown in this Newsletter. Answering the questions posed will enable ICSB to mould its activities and resources to ensure that your immediate needs are addressed quickly. The results will also help us to develop our 5 Year Strategy which is a major piece of work that we are currently undertaking. Finally, may I wish everyone in the conference in Brazil on September 26-28 every success as this event may lead to a wonderful new opportunity for ICSB to expand its activities in South America.
