Experiencing other cultures increases our overall openness to new perspectives and brings a new dynamic and outlook to business.

If I should have a daughter…

tedThere is nothing more sacred than the relationship between a mother and daughter, and spoken word poet Sarah Kay who raised two standing ovations when she performed this piece at TED in 2011, is still one of our favourite talks ever.

We challenge you not to be moved!

 

Mother,

mummy cufddle

Of all the words I could choose, there aren’t quite enough to say,

how much you are appreciated, how you inspire me in many ways.

To a wonderful woman enjoy your special day,

you deserve so many blessings much love to you happy birthday.
