I am very lucky. To be doing these things:
Saturday 18th August 2018
I have been asked to create and present a half day event on how guys can dress with confidence. That’s at BALTIC39 in Newcastle City.
Thursday 6th September 2018
I have been invited to be a judge at The North East Marketing Awards 2018 at The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle. The Biscuit Factory is Europe’s largest commercial art space. We should be proud of that.
Friday 14th September 2018
I am one of seven people invited to present at the Rise and Shine 100th Anniversary event at The Northern Design Centre, Gateshead. They want to know about my journey with Always Wear Red.
Wednesday 17th October 2018
I am presenting at The Colour Collective UK event at University of Northumbria, about the role and influence of colour.
There is something that ties all of these things together.
It is, when I was asked, I said yes straight away.
This is quite something for me because all of the opportunities frighten me for one reason or another.
But none of them frighten me as much as what would happen if I said no.
I never want to miss an opportunity. Ever.
Richard Branson famously says:
If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later.
With some of these things above I don’t know what I am going to do yet. But that’s OK. I will.
Anyhow, here’s Richard himself chatting about saying yes, for 50 seconds.
And should a man worth 5 billion dollars wear a better shirt than this?
