For the past few months I and the SocialMedia.ie team have been part of the launchpad programme at the NDRC while we were working on the new BossMetrics application.

One of the extremely beneficial parts of the programmes were the excellent professional speakers brought in as part of the mentorship programme. Investor and entreprenuer Bill Lao was one of those professional speakers who empathized with Start-ups and the challenges therein. One of the stand out parts of his talk was a Ted Talk video which recognised that being a leader is important but also pointed out the importance of being the “first follower”. It’s humourous and educational and definitely worth 3 minutes of your time. Enjoy!
