Rachel Bridge is the author of five best-selling books about entrepreneurs, including How to Make a Million before Lunch and How to Start a Business without any Money. She writes an opinion column for The Sunday Telegraph about small businesses and runs workshops, round table sessions and networking events for entrepreneurs.

Rachel is the former Enterprise Editor of The Sunday Times and took a one-woman show about entrepreneurs to the 2010 Edinburgh comedy festival, which played to sell-out audiences at The Pleasance.

Having met and interviewed hundreds of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, Rachel has gained a real insight into what makes them tick. By drawing on real life examples, she is the ideal person to talk about the common traits they share and look at what we can learn from them.

As well speaking regularly at conferences, Rachel has proven to be an extremely successful moderator and facilitator, using her knowledge of business to guide proceedings in an informed and effective way.

Rachel also hosts awards ceremonies and gives after-dinner speeches.

Rachel has an MA (Hons) degree in Economics from Cambridge University and prior to joining The Sunday Times in 2003 worked for The Investors Chronicle, The Evening Standard and The Times, including two overseas postings in Australia and France.
