At 17 I found the world of business. I have always been creatively minded, but with this discovery, I finally found a medium most natural for me to express my ideas. While at college and university, I launched 4 businesses and numerous creative projects, allowing me to sharpen my entrepreneurial and leadership skills. Unknowingly, I was also looking for the idea and message I would later build my life philosophy around, shortly after graduating I found it. The concept of the Practical Dreamer. Now I am sharing this idea through my startup: Dream Nation, where my team and I are building a personal development brand fit for the 21st century. Additionally, I also offer marketing and branding consultations for businesses and nonprofits. Through speeches, workshops, blogging and other creative projects, I also share lessons I’ve learnt on my journey.Locked Pro Plan feature
I manage Loughborough University's business incubator programme called "The Studio". My role involves advising and training a group of handpicked graduates during the early stages of their entrepreneurial journeys, giving them and their businesses a greater chance of success.
Dream Nation is a personal development brand designed or the 21st century. We create events, training and technology helping people to improve their productivity, emotional intelligence, financial literacy and physical health.
I believe public speaking is without a doubt the most powerful and effective method of communicating an idea, and ideas are the only thing needed to change a life. I've told my story and shared the lessons I've learnt from life and business with audiences all across the UK and internationally. Some the organisations I've had the pleasure of speaking for include: TEDx, Loughborough University, Manchester Metropolitan University, The Creative Entrepreneur Conference and Teach First To see me in action, watch my TEDx Talk at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8lo9ZwsHaU
