...Daring to dream big has become a raison d'etre instead of a damned inconvenient character trait.

Seth's been an inspiration that's taken me down a wild ride of a path and brought more out of me than I ever thought possible.

In two years I've started a business, published a Changethis.com manifesto, am speaking at TEDx, hosted the London Linchpin meetup and met hundreds if not thousands of amazing people primarily because of Seth's encouragement. And had a whole load of fun.

That life-sized cut-out is in my office now and is, quite literally, an honoured Board member of all of it.

One day I hope to write shorter sentences too.

Seth, thank you for everything, and have a fabulous fiftieth.

 

The linchpin is an individual who can walk into chaos and create order, someone who can invent, connect, create, and make things happen. Every worthwhile institution has indispensable people who make differences like these.
