Event Details

Celebrated as one of Britain's most successful self-made entrepreneurs, Sir Charles Dunstone changed the way we communicate when he founded Carphone Warehouse.

Having kick-started a mobile revolution at the age of 25 with just £6,000 and responsible for changing the broadband market indefinitely with TalkTalk, one theme continues to define his career: disruption.

His success has led to IPOs, awards, rich lists, a knighthood and business interests ranging from fast food to electronic payment software. This telecoms giant and brave entrepreneur from Essex has overcome stereotypes and cyber attacks in his pursuit of creating challenger brands.

In a new event series celebrating courageous minds, the Chicago Booth London campus invites you to learn from remarkable and refreshingly inspiring professionals who are disrupting our thinking about business innovation and success.

Please join us for our inaugural event series with Sir Charles Dunstone in conversation with the BBC's Business Editor, Simon Jack.
