Peter Sheahan is known internationally for inspiring innovative business thinking and creating lasting behavior change. In doing so universities can enhance their role as hubs for entrepreneurship and innovation support in their communities.

Iain Martin's account and analysis of the rise and fall of The Royal Bank of Scotland, and included in the hubris, Fred (The Shred) Goodwin, "Making It Happen", leaves no doubt that the underlying all-pervasive problem was allowing and encouraging an accountant, the said Fred Goodwin to be in executive control of a trade viz banking that as a professional accountant he had little or no grounding, experience or aptitude in. Martin ably decodes financial jargon while sympathising with the public's head shaking incredulity at the size and fragility of the financial system. The Making it Happen team can offer advice about how to form a group, connect and signpost you to local groups, advice, and networks and we can spark your idea into action with small pots of funding.The marketing team promoted Agata’s win at the Scottish Baftas, which brought our business to the attention of Alzheimer Scotland. But it seems that regardless of the discipline—be it weightlifting, running, learning, teaching, coaching, romance, parenting, or business—the closer you get to crossing an important threshold the less making it happen works. Making It Happen focuses on working with residents to build on the good things in a community by supporting your ideas to become new projects or events that benefit your area.

Making it Happen also introduces you to some of the entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial students and staff in our universities who have embarked upon new enterprises; taking their ideas and making them work. Our Community Development Workers listen to and work together with people on their ideas, connect them with others who have similar aspirations, signpost them to training or put them in touch with people with the right expertise, and resources.I've carried that advice right the way through my life, and reading this book brought all that back to me: the mistakes I made in my career that led me to be sent to a backwater branch of NatWest I loathed with a passion. Presumably because of legal restrictions, scant mention is made of Mr Goodwin's affair with a high ranking RBS female executive, which occurred over the period when RBS was coming under severe pressure and needed firm, constant and concentrated management from it's CEO, and may well have been an unwarranted and catastrophic diversion at that time. I am very grateful to Edinburgh Napier University for providing and preparing me with the entrepreneur mind-set.

The author does, however, have a degree of sympathy for Fred Goodwin and asks 'why should he have all the blames, as a lightening rod for everybody else?
