Make my unicorn fly...
Tim Leigh was a key note speaker at this year’s Venturefest Yorkshire 2016 in York. The festival attracts over 1,000 delegates and aims to nurture business growth in Yorkshire, providing a platform for innovators and entrepreneurs to develop and exchange ideas.
Tim’s presentation drew on his experiences as our Sales and Marketing Director, in particular his role at the vanguard of the Stage One costing and sales team, where unusual phone calls give rise to some of the most creative, challenging yet rewarding projects:
“Rarely, if ever, will you ever have 100% of the information required to start a project. Incredibly, even when you’re delivering a project, there will still be ambiguity and a huge amount unknown. This is natural and whilst it feels weird, it’s often better to get started than to wait for all the information to arrive. Because it won’t ever all arrive. And if it has all arrived, some of it will change anyway.
I was reminded of this as my client announced not only were we to fly a unicorn to the roof of the largest domed structure in the world, but that they had now decided to strap a seven year old boy atop the mythical creature for the ride. Information is fluid. Acknowledging that and being brave pays dividends.”
