Serving a Community, Public Speaking and Creating Events Podcast ft Damien Clarkson Co-Founder of Vevolution
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
I first met Damien and Judy at their plant-based business boot camp at the Lush Studios in Soho, London. It was an amazing event full of Plant Powered entrepreneurs, great food inspiring talks and some wonderful workshops.
The level of detail that must have gone into it was another level as well as the vibe, in business its widely known that you need to be customer-centric, often at entrepreneurial; events there is a big overtone of sales, there’s none of that here, you can feel the purpose over profit vibe and its most refreshing.
I wanted more after leaving and in a few weeks time (November the 10th 2018) they will be holding their flagship event, the Vevolution festival, which is a mix of talks, workshops and community networking with some vegan food thrown in for good measure.
In just under 3 years Damien and Judy have taken their idea for Velolution and made it become reality with their events getting bigger and bigger each year, this year they will be at the Iconic British Film Institute Southbank, something Damien never thought could happen so quickly!
The crowd that comes is a wonderfully diverse mix but with one thing in common; they want to make a positive change in the world!
Check out the Podcast below where I talk to Damien about business, public speaking, working with your partner and creating events.
