Four weeks ago I gave in to the idea of doing a talk. In English.
Sold out venue.
75 People in the audience.

And you know what: I survived!

And like always when I succumb to doing things that scare the scheisse out of me…
I loved it.

So. If you know of any event-needs-speaker adverts: count me in!

 

A lovely article was written by journalist Phillip Gangan.
(gosh, I keep reading that title: “Changing course: In pursuit of our true calling”)
And, in the next few weeks the video will go online.

 

For now you’ll have to do with my slides.
I must say that I have no idea why the first slide is looking this strange.
I blame Bowie.

 

 

Wow, you scrolled all the way down!
You are rewarded with a little post-creative-mornings-reflection

 

Massive Milestone Moment: Interview in 101 Woonideeen magazine!

Today this hit the shelves…!

I always looked up to the people being interviewed for this section in the back of my favourite magazine: interviews with inspiring creative entrepreneurs. Wow. If I ever…

Imagine my heart attack surprise when I received THE e-mail asking if they could interview ME!

Superscary, but above all a huge honour!

Thank you so much, 101 Woonideeen!!!
