Steve Jobs famously said “I’d rather be pirate than join the navy”, on this show we will discuss what Steve Jobs meant by this.
From rogues to role models: Be More Pirate reveals the radical strategies of Golden Age pirates, and updates them into clear solutions for making your mark on the 21st Century.
Be More Pirate draws parallels between the strategy and innovation of legends like Henry Morgan with modern-day rebels, like Elon Musk, Malala and Blockchain, and reveals how to apply their tactics to life and work today.
Social entrepreneur and author Sam Conniff Allende shares the parallels and the principles we can draw to make a difference in our world today for the generations of tomorrow.
Sam shares the 5 key principles practised by pirates, which we can use today:
- Rebel – stand up to status quo
- Rewrite – bend and rewrite rules
- Reorganise – collaborate to achieve scale
- Redistribute – fairness, share power
- Retell – weaponise your story to establish and spread their legacy
Sam leaves us with the profound message of C.S. Lewis “Good and evil increase at compound interest. That’s why the little decisions we make every day are of infinite importance. the smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may go on to victories you never dreamed of”.
