Something Great wasn’t Easy

Earlier this week I gave a talk as part of the excellent Heroes of Mobile event in Leeds.

The talk was called ‘Nothing Great is Easy’ and provided lessons for business learnt from open water [particularly channel] swimming.

It seemed to be well received and to go well – it’s often hard to tell when you’re stood at the front of the room, but there were lots of interested questions from the group.

Thanks to Helen for inviting me, to Lloyd for facilitating the sessions and to aql for sponsoring it. The day finished with a Swedish Beers event, so some memories are a little hazy!

Now for more book writing!



Nothing Great is Easy

I’ve been quiet on here recently, but lots has been happening behind the scenes. Some of that is now bursting out and it’s going to start with me giving a talk in Leeds next week.

I’ll be talking about the lessons for running your own business that can be learned from open water swimming. If you’re in Leeds on Tuesday at 2pm, you can sign up here – Nothing Great is Easy.

It will be part of the excellent Heroes of Mobile as it ventures up north. There are lots of other great talks, app demos and of course, Swedish Beers drinks in the evening.

Hopefully I’ll see you in Leeds.
