We are all familiar to some extent with the story of Andrew Carnegie, as being a highly successful Scottish-born businessman and as a noted philanthropist. The presentation will focus on the “Laws of Success” which he devised and which set out the key principles behind his achievements. These provide crucial lessons which we can learn and then apply to achieve success both in our professional and business careers.
