I have been a big fan of AKQA and their work for a while now. I read about how CEO, Ajaz Ahmed, started the company several years ago and ever since I’ve seen him as a bit of a hero. You can therefore imagine how excited I was when I received an email from Ajaz – asking me to me come in and speak to the staff about My 40 Days.
The heartbeat of my project is risk and innovation. I am taking on challenges that look and sound impossible and that is what this company do on a daily basis. The fear of failure is crippling and so I aimed to inspire a boldness in the staff to keep stepping out of their comfort zone.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to speak. It shows me how far this project has come and also a sign of how big it can get. I was also delighted to receive a beautiful pair of NIKE ID’s and Ajaz’s book ‘Velocity’.
The speaking engagements are ramping up, if you would like me to come and speak at your company, feel free to get in touch here.
