In 2006 I was sitting in Sir John Hegarty’s office at BBH on Kingly Street in London. I had come up with the idea and business plan for TIE. But it still needed a name. I had a number of different names to choose from, but I felt stumped.

But, as usual he got me back on track.

Sir John Hegarty is the Creative Founder of the global Ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (known as BBH) and is the world-renowned creator of legendary ad campaigns for Levi’s, Lego, and Audi, Johnny Walker’s Keep Walking, the Links Effect amongst many others. John is also one of TIE’s incredible mentors.

His Mantra Do Interesting Things and Interesting Things will happen to you is something I personally find so inspiring.

Today, John will inspire you with wonderful nuggets on how to live your best life.

He talks to us about how to find real inspiration in your day-to-day.

We talk about riding the bus.

Sayings that don’t make any sense.

And about his mantra “Do Interesting Things and Interesting Things will Happen to You”.

You don’t want to miss this episode. If you want to get inspired, definitely have a listen.


You’ll be happy to hear that our TIE Accelerator programme is gaining momentum.

We have 5 projects to support NGOs in Brazil, India, Syria/Iraq, Zambia and East Africa that we are determined to fill before the end of the year. And each project needs 6 people.

We have a handful of people who have applied, but we need to get the word out.

Please do help us spread the word by posting and sharing via social media.

Here’s your chance to be part of the solution to making the world a better place.

There’s a lot going on at the moment that rightfully demands our collective energies. My hope is that this program can make a positive, even if small contribution by helping change the corporate landscape for the better. And I can’t emphasise enough how much this means to the initiatives around the world that are in need of smart people right now.

I’m so excited to make this happen. And so appreciate your help getting us there.

Let’s change the world!
