  1. Looking forward to the Rule Breaker Awards and seeing who the nominees are! – to reading more about them and the journeys that lead them to where they are and what they’ve achieved.

  2. Oooh I am excited to see the Rule Breaker awards. More than an event that rewards thought leaders, I think that this is also a very inspiring event that can encourage entrepreneurs to move over boundaries and create businesses that truly represents them.

    • I think it can also be useful for those who nominate. Sometimes, to recognise something good in someone else, you’re recognising something similar in yourself.

      I love the award name too!
