WHY BRUCE WAS INTERVIEWED

Being an adventurer myself I was looking to book a G Adventure to Bhutan for our Adventure-moon.  G Adventures were hosting a meet up locally and we went along and won the 1st and 2nd prize gift vouchers to use towards our next trip.  One of the prizes was the book Looptail and when I said, ‘I’d have been happy with the book’ Cynthia Connell Concept Store Manager she handed me a book and when I explained what I was doing she said, ‘OMG you’ve got to interview Bruce, he’s a complete maverick,’ and connected with the Mayor [Bruce’s P.A].  Bruce is fun, direct, spiritual and caring.

HOW ARE CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION RELATED TO BEING A MAVERICK?

Being a maverick, it’s everything to do with creativity.  Innovation is going to creativity, and innovation to me is defined by what we’ve yet to do as opposed to what you’ve done.  I think most businesses and most educational institutions talk about innovation as what companies are doing.  I view innovation in the world of what you’ve yet to do.”

KEY LEARN FROM INTERVIEW

Focus on where I need to be rather than where I’m going.  Collectively I’m capable of changing the world.

WE’ve GOT more craziness for you!
