KashFlows Managing Director Duane Jackson has been hailed as one of the most successful entrepreneurs to benefit from The Princes Trust at their 25th Anniversary celebration in January, meeting arguably the most successful person on the planet Bill Gates, CEO of Microsoft in the process. Bill Gates showed his support for The Princes Trust the year of celebrations that mark the 25th anniversary of The Princes Trust Business Programme. He met a small selection of high achieving young business men and women in the UK today including KashFlow Software Managing Director, Duane Jackson. At a reception held at the House of Commons, The Princes Trust were congratulated for their 25 years of service, helping over 550000 young people in the process and continuing to support more than 100 more young people each day. Bill Gates was invited to spend time talking with the handful of business owners and entrepreneurs invited to the event and took the time to pass on some of the tips he learnt whilst building the worlds largest IT related company. Speaking about the event and meeting Bill Gates KashFlow Managing Director Duane Jackson said, It was great to meet Bill Gates. He is the biggest success story in business, and somebody I find very inspirational. I was honoured to be in his company, and was flattered at the recognition by The Princes Trust; without whom I would not have achieved the success I have so far. He continued, I did make a comment about software as a service products like KashFlow undermining the traditional model that Microsoft still use. He said that it is a space they are looking at entering. I wish Id kept quiet now!
