Finding Your Brave

Tuesday @ 10:00am


Reflecting Andrew’s incredible career journey, his presentation will cover how he ‘found’ his brave to start up his own company with just £1000 in the bank and a 2-week old baby. Since then, Andrew has worked with many of the world’s leading brands to help them do the same; find their brave. Andrew will share what it takes to create award winning work; why bravery always pays off; the unforeseen challenges faced; and importantly, how you can find your brave.
