2020 | End Scene…

Reflecting and future gazing.

As the world continues to hobble forward through it’s pandemic / environmental / corrupt leadership crisis, please do take the time to watch the incredible video essay above on what I’ve always held dear: humans are innately good.

LESSONS

Be fiercely kind because…

There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.” ― Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

2021

Will be focused on the following:

  • Online production: have 20+ events already booked to MC plus producing podcasts for a couple of clients as well so building out the home studio to up the production values in these areas
  • Masterclasses, coaching and speaking: continuing to deliver in-person internal sessions on ‘purposeful storytelling’ whilst taking on 1-2-1 speaker coaching clients and also be open to speak on stage a few times as well (truly miss this)
  • RemoteTogetherNZ: continue my curation role for this Queenstown-based endeavor happening March 2021 (buy your passes here)
  • Online course: putting together a virtual offering with the hope to launch mid 2021
  • TEDxWellington: my pro bono to bring the largest ever TEDx to the nations capital (going to be a 2,000 person live event) and shine a light on the incredible talent we have in the region then amplify them through the TED platform
  • Creative Welly: continue to hone my side passion project and curate amazing people doing wonderful things in capital (read the review here)
  • Production pitches: have a couple of proverbial ‘irons-in-the-fire’ regarding NZ based content for distribution for a global market
  • Creative Leadership NZ: aiming to produce the fourth iteration of my little conference for the end of 2021.

So here’s a 2021 which elates, brings joy and softer changes.
