Paul Gillett of sales and marketing firm AJG Direct attended an exciting speaking event where he took inspiration from international speaker and former Olympian Mark Colbourne.
As a collective, AJG Direct actively seeks out new learning opportunities on a regular basis. This week, CEO Paul Gillett attended a networking event in Regents Park. The event was a particularly exciting business opportunity for Mr Gillett as it was a chance to network with professionals from a range of business sectors.
Not only was this a wonderful networking opportunity for the business owner, but the event also hosted an important keynote speaker in the shape of former Olympian Mark Colbourne. After experiencing a near fatal crash in May 2009, Mr Colbourne decided to work towards a life that was successful and fulfilled. Having won Paralympic Gold, Mark Colbourne now takes his epic story, about never giving up, around the globe sharing his message with people hoping to change their lives for the better.
AJG Direct is confident that in order to be a success it is important to learn from those who are outside of their industry but still experts in their own fields. Paul Gillett states how this is incredibly inspiring and helps business professionals to perhaps take a new perspective on similar problems in their own industry or think outside the box when it comes to approaching certain situations.
Paul Gillett of AJG Direct shares how this kind of thinking is helpful to progress in any industry and to outperform competitors. “Learning from people outside of your everyday environment is so helpful to generate new ideas and solutions,” revealed Mr Gillett. “We encourage creative thinking and never limit our people to only learning from one environment,” added the business owner.
