HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A MAVERICK?
“I’ve a very subjective take on that, because I don’t believe there are any such things as mavericks. I just believe there are people who see the future in ways that other people don’t. And ironically people who get called mavericks are often the most sensible, down to earth, straight-forward people going. In fact their perceived maverickness is simply the fact that other people haven’t caught up yet.”

WHY CINDY WAS INTERVIEWED
I read about Cindy and how she was the Michael Bay of Business after she was recommended by another maverick Nik Badminton, a world-respected futurist speaker that provides keynote speeches about the future of work, the sharing economy, and how the world is evolving. Once Cindy read details of the project she was very happy to be interviewed. Cindy is focused, direct, purpose-drive and blunt in a good way.
