At the Stanford Commencement Exercises (sounds more like a military manoeuvre than the graduation ceremony it is) Steve Jobs shared the meandering journey of his career at Apple with the fresh faced eager graduates as they looked ahead to the future. “You have to find what you love,” he told them. A simple statement which, on the face of it, may be derided by those more cynically inclined as thoughtless. On Wednesday evening, we hosted the first in a series of thoughtfully innovative careers evenings where professionals shared their experience of school and finding their career with students and parents. The keynote speaker, Paul Bolwell from Wiggle.com, covered much ground, both personal and professional and we are indebted to him for his immediacy, honesty and passion. Paul explained how he found himself and a friend at the head of a multi-million pound business; wondering how it happened and where the ‘men in suits’ fitted in. The key message though was uncompromising; the drive to be the best he could be. In the same manner as Steve Jobs, Paul may not have thought through in a calculated fashion all the steps to get from A to B, but perhaps without thinking about it he had the ingredients for success in his drive to never settle for less than his best doing something he loved.
