AFR’s first bespoke summit was a tale of two halves. Both hit and miss, but our 4 highlights were:
1. Ramdane Touhami
Do one thing f*&king brilliantly and “boom”. Had the place in the palm of his hand with his unique style of storytelling and his utter belief in his journey to achieve perfection.
2. Karen Walker
It must start with a good idea. if the product isn’t right, the dark arts (marketing) won’t help. Talked beautifully about how to create. Its better to create one thing well than lots of average things.
3. Simone Cipriani
Making a difference is about collaboration, not charity. Spoke with such passion and charisma the whole opera house was silenced to hear his every word. A genius speaker.
4. Saturdays NYC
Presentation is everything. If you bomb, it’s very handy to surround yourself with people that can cover you. An inspirational story of how having a passion that links with a business idea can be a success.
