I came across loads of inspiring corporate and one-of-a-kind speakers at the Business Show 2013 in Olympia this week. This post contains some key thoughts I took from the event.
I will post some corporate ideas later. Meanwhile here are views from three speakers I think of as ‘one-of-a-kinders’. They each made an impression on me in a different way. I hope you too will want to find out more about these folks:
Clippy McKenna – she’s responsible for Clippy’s jam products getting onto Tesco’s shelves. She demonstrated the importance of being resilient; challenging the status quo; and living in a way that is consistent with your values. She is on Twitter as @clippysworld
Brad Burton – head of 4Networking – spoke with passion about: knowing your own truth, and allowing that truth to motivate you professionally & personally. He is also an advocate of respecting your priorities and putting people first. Find him on Twitter @BradBurton
David Gold – entrepreneur and joint-chairman of West Ham United – emphasised the personal drive required to pursue an inspiring goal. As he put it, “If it is to be, it is up to me!” David’s Twitter handle is @davidgold
By the way, if you were to distil your core values into a sentence, what would they be?
