The summit is just the start. We choose to go to the Moon.

The Author

The book was great to sort out my ideas, now I can explain things in bite size chunks at live events. As people understand more, they see the value in what I do, and ask more questions. the answers I can share in my next book.

Community leader

having passion is great, but even charities have to be able to get an income. If you apply for funding, you have to present a business case. If people are willing to pay to hear you speak, it shows what you do has value to the community.

Small Business Owner

Startups are not my market, but I love talking to them. If I listened to what was meant to be "professional", I would not be getting paid to do what I love. Now as an international business award winner, how I do create great value for my clients.

Corporate manager

Leaders come up with why, but performance is about what you do. managers have to sell the leader's ideas to get things done. If you can do that, it's valuable IP. If your organisation doesn't pay you extra for that, others sure will.
