Five of The Best - 043

Jul 19, 2018

One thing I’ve learned in life and business, (and actually in theatre too – thanks Will Shakespeare), is that there are very few new ideas under the sun. It is inevitable in 99.9% of cases that someone else has already created something similar to what you want to do and often written a book or an article about it. But often we don’t check first. Even with the world at our fingertips, I know people who sit forever trying to invent the perfect wheel, when they could have looked at the wheel someone else created, learnt from it, built on it and adapted it for their needs in a fraction of the time.

I’m always devouring content, I’m an avid learner and I love to find shortcuts, hacks and ways to do things better. In this show, I’m sharing some of my best literary discoveries in the hope they’re useful to you too. They just might give you some food for thought, and maybe help you move forward faster.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s important that you are comfortable with yourself and play to your strengths
  • What you can learn from after dinner stories
  • Different opportunities to use humour in business
  • The power of little decisions
  • Ways in which we are easily influenced

Thanks for listening!
