Livelihood Forum

Thusday 22nd November, we were fortunate enough to have three speakers for the evening, Tim Loe, Andrew Rattray and Cllr Phil Parsons.
These three wise men gave an insight in to their careers, from where they had started to what they were doing now and how they got there.
From both ends of the book dealing spectrum, mass sales with a small margin per book to very few but much prized exchanges of rare and antique editions. Tim and Andrew both showed that it is very possible to make a living 'using your wits' and finding that little niche that others may have overlooked.
Cllr Phil Parsons enlightened us on his role as Cornwall councillor, and how the wheels of politics turn from a single voice in the community to large organisations dealing directly with the county council.
These three speakers generated a good question and answer session to conclude the evening.
