Simon Tam
Director, ICO Limited
Simon Tam's association with Manchester dated back to 1979, when he went there to pursue a Master of Science Degree in Management Education and Organizational Change, housed within UMIST. He subsequently went on to join the Business School at the University of Hong Kong and began a life-long devotion to understanding entrepreneurship. For over twenty years, he was fascinated by the question of “what do entrepreneurs do?" and attempted to build a new framework to make sense of their work. In the course of seeking understanding, he made some interesting discoveries and used those discoveries to produce a new paradigm, an MBA course on entrepreneurship, to develop a unique consultation approach, to facilitate corporations to transform, and to help numerous aspiring entrepreneurs to build competencies. He has recently left the University of Hong Kong so that he could put his theory to test. He is now one of the founder entrepreneurs of two successful companies, and founder of one US-Hong Kong joint venture which is still at the stage of struggling. All these experiments will be used to inform his theory construction work.
