Right now, I’m sat in Sri Lanka at the end of a wonderful family holiday, reflecting on 2017 both professionally and personally and full to the brim with excitement on what 2018 will bring.
I’ve run businesses for seven and a half years now and have seen some of them grow from my bedroom (literally) to decent sized SME’s, split between London, Dubai, Hong Kong and now Singapore.
I always had a burning desire (ask my Mum) to run a business and as it happens the advertising, communications and talent industries were what I fell in love with and have always remained involved in.
2017 was an interesting year, some of our businesses performed brilliantly and others had a tough time, but here’s a snippet of some of the things I’ve seen and learned as a leader over time.
These are just some of my tips, as a leader and as a businessman. I’m not afraid of failure and I’m lucky enough to have had plenty of success. I’m hugely excited about 2018.
I lead a group of companies with big ambitions and bags of potential, and better still I have an amazing family around me that give me that support that’s always required, just at the right times.
As ever, I’m always interested in people’s thoughts on this piece, and if you’re reading this and want to join us on our exciting journey, then do please get in touch.
Here’s to a tremendous 2018 everyone. Live your dreams and enjoy every moment, love what you do.
