Hiiiiiiiii,
Hope you have all had a productive week. I visited Buckingham Palace for the first time last week (Queen was up in Scotland or I would have said hi of course).
Delivered a live Webinar on Direct-To-Consumer value propositions & internationalisation to a Mastermind Group called #A Team. You can watch the recording HERE.
Really enjoyed the Breaking into the Elite documentary on the BBC about the barriers young people from lower income barriers face in breaking into the city (relates to my experience 12 years ago). Would have been great if it explored some solutions and spoke to more of the so called elite.
On the topic of breaking into the elite. I am currently finishing up an e-book I will be releasing called Breaking into New Careers: Non-Tech roles edition which will be a short guide on how to transition careers available for £9.99.
If you are interested in joining the waiting list, holla!

Remember, no newsletter for the next week as I will be in Central America. Hence the extra special long edition today. See ya! 👋
