What it takes to be a YouTuber

About the talk

Lucy Earl, Westminster alumna and founder of the YouTube channel English with Lucy, will be giving the lowdown on her journey to becoming a full-time YouTuber.

Lucy’s success is an inspirational example of what you can achieve by following your personal passions and taking some risks along the way. She explains: “It's a business that I started completely from scratch with a £500 business loan from my dad, paid back with interest, of course, and has now a pretty significant turnover. It was a huge step for me to say no to the grad schemes and yes to going at it alone, but it was the best thing I ever did.”

There will be time for the audience to ask questions of the speakers both during the Q&A and informally after the event with refreshments and networking.
