and I love it!
A new job can always be daunting, especially when you’re dropped in the deep end, but having new challenges and a new outlook is amazing and so refreshing.
I went to an event on Thursday run by the IDM as part of their Annual Lecture and the speaker was so inspirational – Ajaz Ahmed started his business when he was 21 years old and now AKQA employs 2000 people across 17 offices worldwide! He was talking about the background of his new book called Limitless that delves into the enduring philosophy that many people should adopt to become great leaders. Through the case studies that asre presented (including Ford, Lego and Netflix to name a few) Ajaz outlines how their Leadership styles have stood the test of time. Definitely one to read.
That was only the first week!
I am not going to lie I am completely exhausted but have gone to some great events and met some amazing people.
I have realised that for the life of me I can’t write minutes for meetings but I’ve been told I will definitely get better with time. Also that my face says a thousand words when I don’t understand something and that I really must get that under wraps haha! Despite it only being my 3rd week (just!) I have learnt such a ridiculous amount.
On another note, I got my first pair of Virtual Reality glasses! They’re the cardboard ones that you put your phone in but they are pretty interesting the way it works. I would definitely tell you to get some and try them out, you just build them (which is surprising as I can’t build anything) and then stick your smartphone in the front once you’ve downloaded the app – there’s loads of different maps that you can download.
So I started my new and exciting journey and I’ll keep you updated on what I get up to there is a European CamperVanning Trip coming up – try not to get too excited 🙂
