Do you have an idea worth sharing?


The world is full of talented people who are innovative and creative… In a split second, you see the brilliant work of these characters as you look all around you. Every modern achievement was just a thought in someone’s head until they acted on it and it became a reality.

In other words, the very world around us is built from ideas in people’s heads.

Imagine someone from a 1,000 years ago was suddenly teleported to our present day… Imagine how absolutely astonished our new friend would be by every little detail around him? How did people build such big and tall structures? Why is everyone holding and tapping that little box in their hand and who are they talking to when that box touches their ear? How did they get all these lights on at night? What are those big birds flying in the air?


With so much going on around us, we have almost become totally oblivious to the wonders in our world. The very house you live in was first designed in someone’s mind and then with a team, that structure was built bit by bit until it became your home.

The car you drive has a bunch of interdependent systems working together which allows you to put a key into your car’s ignition and with a small turn, you’re off to your destination without much fuss!

If you start to break down every other instance around you like this, you start to appreciate how these things come together but this kind of understanding is also invaluable if you also want to do great things.

While I have you engaged in this thinking, I want you to consider if there’s an idea you might have that’s worth sharing with the world! Far too often, we leave the supposed “big thinking” to other people but that’s probably our first big mistake!

In a twist of fate, I got into public speaking almost by accident a few years ago and my life has never been the same since. These days, some really big companies pay me to talk at different events of theirs across a range of different topics that I’ve developed.


If I analyze how it all started, one day I made the “crazy” decision to share the ideas in my head with the world even though I had never done so before on such a grand scale. I kept doing it and got better at it until eventually the free market voted with its feet and now this is one of the things I do for a living. My journey has only just beginning but since I now consider myself a professional speaker, I’m working on every imaginable aspect of the craft to become better. The cycle ends and the nerves never dissipate.

There are definitely many factors that come together when you start. You have to be talented; you have to be articulate. Whenever you start, your ideas are raw and need plenty refining but if those things are in place, you need to stick with it until it becomes second nature.

But still, no one certifies anyone to share their ideas with the general public. Most people just start with a unique view point that they have to share with the world and if it’s good enough, they get asked to do it again.

The reason I’m sharing this with you is because I believe there are a lot of people who have amazing ideas to share with the world! The problem is, very few have a platform from which to launch and I’d like to try and solve that.

Last year I started Suits & Sneakers which is a conference/social event that is all about offering its audience ideas that are worth sharing. Topics will range in nature but the idea is to bring the masses together and add some kind of value to their lives with a level of thinking they don’t receive every day in their normal routine.

As I plot to host the first version of this event, I’d like to put it out there to every single one of you. If you think you have something to say that will add value to people’s lives then we’d like to hear from you. If you have an idea worth sharing with the world, we want to know about it and you could potentially be standing on that stage later on this year sharing it with the world!

There is quite a process between now and standing on that stage but we really want to unearth people who have really good ideas to share with the world! If that’s you, we wanna hear from you!

Lastly, if you know of a speaker that you’ve heard at an event before that fits the bill for what we’re talking about then we’d also really like to hear from you!
