When I first heard about beyond tellerrand a few years ago, it seemed like an event that was not only well-run, but well-loved by those who have attended. Every time I hear about it, I hear such great things that I knew that I wanted to be a part of it some day. I'm happy to report that it lived up to even my wildest expectations.
“Motivation” with Gavin Strange and James Victore
This time my guests are Gavin Strange and James Victore. Two of my biggest heroes when it comes to motivating people in many, many ways. So, look forward to the show, and read below, what you are able to enter and whom to meet.
Making the work is the easy part … (Gavin Strange)
Making the work is the easy part, finding the time, however, is the difficult bit. In his talks and his book, Gavin shares his stories and methods behind getting the most out of those 24 pesky hours, conveyed via the medium of bright colours and animated GIFs.
He prides himself on being a ‘realistic idealist’ or ‘idealistic realist’ – striking the balance between uncurbed enthusiasm and pragmatic process. Floaty sentiments aside, his talks are about finding the energy and making the time to create things that matter. That’s something Gav believes applies to everyone - from a GSCE to CEO!
