Football boss Karren Brady says plumbing course better than university


According to an article in a national newspaper, West Ham vice-chair (and former Birmingham City boss) Karren Brady believes a course in plumbing is better training for an entrepreneur than a university degree.

Who are we to disagree?

As a national franchise business, Drain Doctor uniquely combines plumbing and entrepreneurial skills. You don’t need to be a plumber to run a Drain Doctor franchise but several of our best franchise owners did start out as plumbers – and still turn out to tackle plumbing and drainage emergencies themselves when they need to.

    I think Karren Brady has made a very interesting point. If an individual has the right personal qualities, vocational training and development can be an important route to establishing and running your own successful business.

    Not sure I fully agree – it’s more down to the individual and the drive they have, etc, regardless of the path they wish to take.

    No doubt, though, a plumbing course teaches some vital life skills.
