And the winner is…

On my social media feed, I have a ‘time hop’ feature which brings up past posts and photo’s, of what happened ‘on this day’.

It was around this time, last year, I won the award for Best in Science & Engineering incl. Innovation at the British Indian Awards, 2016.

A highlight of the year, no doubt.

Since then, a lot has happened – well, I started this blog page earlier on in the year. I used to post a lot on Linkedin, which was once a month (and try to still do that) but now focus on here, where I can share my thoughts on a more regular basis.

I’ve been doing more talks…

This one, was at the Sales Innovation Expo this year (nice photo they used!)

I’ve been sharing & talking more to small and intimate audiences…

I’ll admit, it’s been fun. Talking, collaborating and learning…

And there’s more to come. Tonight, for my friends at Tech Nottingham, I’ll be sharing my thoughts at their Nott Tuesday event. This is the first time i’m speaking in my home town of Nottingham! – Hoping to have it filmed, and I will be sharing it here on my blog later in the week and next week.

More importantly, it’s the great people i’ve met over the year, since winning my award. Some really interesting folk… who have some great ideas… and the one thing I always say is, give it a go! – Use the principles of Lean Startup… If you have an idea, go build it and test it… there’s no rocket science involved… (unless you’re a scientist and are building rockets, then it’s a different story).

I’ll be saving and tagging tonight’s event at Nott Tuesday… and review it in a years time (in 2018) and share, what’s happened in those 12 months.

The exciting thing about that is… it’s not happened, and I can plan, what i’d like to write… and make it happen.
