An Invitation I Couldn't Refuse

Seven weeks ago I recieved an email from Robin Knowles,the CEO of Digital Leaders and Digital Agenda, asking if I would consider running a talk during Digital Leaders Week 2020.

I had two simultaneous reactions that were totally at odds with each other. The first ‘Heck Yes – I’d be honoured to’ and the second ‘He must have sent it to the wrong person! You can’t do that!’

Before I could let the neagtive self-talk take hold I replied with the ‘Yes I’d be honoured to.’ Robin came straight back to me and the following day the date and time for the talk were scheduled.

Over the next couple of weeks just over 400 people booked to attend.

I would love to say that it went without a hitch, however that wouldn’t be accurate. However the feedback was wonderful and the contacts since the event have been quite incredible.
A guide to the replay video timings are at the bottom of this post.

If you have any questions then please feel free to email me

One message that I got through LinkedIn after the event really made my day. It was wonderful to be able to share it with the team. It is comments like this that motivate us to keep going, along with knowing that aDoddle makes sense.

In Gratitude
