OSTC Visitors from Poland - February 24th 2014

OSTC have asked me to lead a guided visit to the Gherkin for a group of their brightest business students from Poland, something I did for them at this time last year. I rarely get to take large groups to the top of the Gherkin (as it's a working building of course) so everyone is very excited. The visit goes brilliantly and then becomes a conversation about their careers and about attitudes and I end up giving a stirring speech as we stand beside the lift about choices and the advantages of asking (people can always say no and they so often say yes!)  As I say goodbye at the bottom of the building I get a round of applause (lovely) and one of the group asks me if I've ever considered becoming a Motivational Speaker...

Later a member of the group, Mateusz Mucha, sends a LinkedIn request - of course I say yes.
