(1888PressRelease) August 07, 2012 - James Caan may be best known to the general public for his appearances in the hit BBC show, Dragons Den, but James has been a successful entrepreneur for many years before that and currently, at the age of fifty-one, is worth an estimated £70million. Having founded three successful businesses', two of which he sold around 1999. Frontline Events Ltd follow the entrepreneur's successes.
James Caan's family immigrated to the UK from Pakistan when he was two and-a-half years old. His father started a clothing company which he was hoping James would run once he had finished his education but James had other ideas and left school when he was 16, just before he was due to take his exams leaving with no qualifications. James managed to secure a position in a recruitment role in which he excelled, explains Frontline Events Ltd researchers. A few years later in 1985 he founded Alexander Mann.
While Alexander Mann was growing, Caan decided to try his hand at international marketing and founded Humana International, a franchising model to which he grew to 147 offices across 30 countries. These are both companies he sold in 1999. Frontline Events Ltd reveal James Caan is also CEO at Hamilton Bradshaw, which specialises in buyouts, turnarounds, real estate investment and venture capital in the UK. Frontline Events Ltd Managing Director, Gillian O'Brien said "It's amazing how someone who left school with no qualifications has three 'Honorary Doctorate of Business Administration' awards. The recognition he has earned himself is brilliant and goes to show everyday people that anything can be achieved when you put your mind to it and perhaps education isn't essential to be successful"
Frontline Events Ltd are inspired by Caan's achievements and support his commitment to charity. James Caan set up The JCF which aims to help underprivileged children get access to education. Through this foundation, he has opened a 16 classroom school in his native, Lahore. When the floods hit Pakistan in 2010, James united with UNICEF and helped to raise over £100,000 to deliver aid for people affected by the crisis. Gillian O'Brien, Frontline Events Ltd MD said "I also find it very humble that James never forgot his roots. Like with many entrepreneurs, he wants to do his utmost to help people and most entrepreneurs say that they love to give back and make people happy. After all, this is a man that came to the UK and then changed his name so he would be more accepted in the business world."
Frontline Events Ltd Ltd asks 'how did a boy of 16 with no qualifications end up being one of Britain's most successful entrepreneurs?' Caan always said his dad was the most inspirational person with an amazing work ethic having started up his own business from scratch. He also said he learnt a great amount of knowledge in a business respect has come from his role in recruitment. He loves negotiating and closing deals. He networks with the right people and he isn't afraid of hard work. He wants to be able to have as many holidays as he chooses to, not as he can afford. Caan wanted the lifestyle he has and did everything in his power to make sure his dreams became a reality.
James Caan had a vision and never let anything get in the way of that, more recently he shares his knowledge with other budding entrepreneurs on how to be so successful.
