About the Author:

John Forbat was an immigrant to London from Hungary, at the age of seven. After qualifying as an aeronautical engineer, his professional life started with big companies in the aircraft and avionics industries and in the electronics industry. Those years involved highly capital and development oriented businesses, giving him the experience of how large companies are managed - and mismanaged. It also enabled him to experience the extent to which entrepreneurship can be stifled, by excessively corporatist attitudes in business. He then moved into a number of highly entrepreneurial businesses encompassing products, product innovation and services worldwide, where it became necessary to achieve the impossible - at least according to the textbooks. His successes - and few failures - taught him where the essentials of entrepreneurship lie and what the defining characteristics of entrepreneurs are. During World War, II he was probably London's youngest Fireguard. At sixteen he learned to fly gliders entirely solo and later gained a Private Pilot's Licence. He learned and practiced leadership skills as a Scout and as a Scout Leader and was also a keen sailor, skippering an open whaler from London to Calais and back with a crew of teenagers. He recently returned after living in the USA for over 20 years - and does not like taking ""It's impossible"" for an answer.
