Simon Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organisations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.A trained ethnographer, he is the author of several best-selling books: the global best-seller, Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2011) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). His latest book, The Infinite Game (2018), explores the differences between finite games (football, chess, etc), where the players are known, the rules are fixed and the endpoint is clear and compares them with what he calls the infinite ones: business, politics or even life itself. In the infinite games, the players come and go, the rules can be changed, and there is no defined endpoint. Also, there are no winners and losers in an infinite game. Simon brilliantly argues that many leaders and organizations are struggling because they are applying finite mindsets to infinite games, and teaches how the infinite mindset can be applied to build stronger, more innovative and inspiring organizations.Fascinated by the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in their organisations and in the world – those with the capacity to inspire – he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organisations inspire action.He is best known for popularising the concept of Why, and for the talk he gave on the subject that became the second most watched talk of all time on TED.com.Sinek’s unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership have attracted international attention and have earned him invitations to meet with an array of leaders and organisations, including: 3M, Disney, Pfizer, NBC/Universal, jetBlue, the military, multiple government agencies and entrepreneurs. Sinek has also presented his ideas at the United Nations, the United States Congress and to the senior leadership of the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.

The name, inspired by the novel Moby Dick, evoked the romance of the high seas and the seafaring tradition of the early coffee traders.Their mission was simple: from their first storefront in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market, they were going to offer some of the world’s finest, fresh-roasted, whole bean coffees. It was going to celebrate the rich tradition of coffee and to create a feeling of connection in the coffee shop.Siegl, a former history teacher, was the only paid employee in the early days of Starbucks Coffee Company. In 1980, after ten years as Vice President, Siegl exited Starbucks, which by then had expended to six Seattle-area stores and a substantial wholesale business.Following his departure from Starbucks, Siegl became a serial entrepreneur, founding Quartermaine Coffee Roasters in Washington DC, Peerless Pie in Seattle, and more recently, BuckleUp.

He conducted research geared towards making cheaper solar cells and assesses the commercial viability of solar technologies.Siya says: “I was chasing the roar of a Cessna plane dropping election pamphlets over Mthatha, my South African township. It was 1994, the first year of a new democracy in my country and the sight of that technological marvel ignited in me a curiosity for science and a passion for using technology to engineer an African renaissance.”A born innovator, Siyabulela Xuza began experimenting with rocket fuels in his mother’s kitchen. This passion turned into a serious science project that culminated in him developing a cheaper and safer rocket fuel. Siya’s science project won gold at the National Science Expo and an award for the most prestigious project in South Africa. This led to an invitation to the International Youth Science Fair in Sweden in 2006, where he presented his project to the King and Queen of Sweden and attended the Nobel prize ceremony in Stockholm.His project was then entered into the world’s biggest student science event, attracting about 1 500 students from 52 countries – the Intel International Science & Engineering Fair in the US. He won the two grand awards. His credibility was further endorsed by the NASA-affiliated Lincoln Laboratory, which was so impressed by the young engineer’s achievement that it named a minor planet after him. Planet 23182, discovered in 2000, is now known as Siyaxuza and is found in the main asteroid belt near Jupiter.In 2010, he was awarded a 2010 Fellowship to the African Leadership Network, the premier, invitation-only community of the most dynamic and influential leaders in Africa. In 2011, he served as the youngest member of the African Union-affiliated Africa 2.0 Energy Advisory Panel and was recognized by the World Economic Forum as a Global Shaper.In 2011, he became a fellow of the Kairos Society, a global network of top student and global leaders using entrepreneurship and innovation to solve the world’s greatest challenges. He was invited to the United Nations and the New York Stock Exchange in recognition for being one of the world’s emerging business leaders and to offer strategies for solving the world’s energy crisis.Siya has also conducted research at the Harvard Center for Nanoscale Systems and the MIT Microsystems Technology Laboratories on micro fuel cells – distributed energy that could be used to power remote and rural areas. In 2013, his ground-breaking work on micro fuel cells was published in the Journal of Electroceramics.Xuza’s work has been also publicly recognized by the US First Lady Michelle Obama, who described Siya and President Barack Obama as “living proof of what the legendary President Nelson Mandela once said: Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.

His story is the ultimate tale of how the pursuit of wealth can often trump the importance of ethics in the business world. In the 1990s, Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales organizations in the nation’s financial circles before his well-publicized fall. During that time, he soared to the highest financial heights, earning over $50 million a year, a feat that earned him the name “The Wolf of Wall Street.”Belfort’s career was captured in the Oscar and Golden Globe nominated film, The Wolf of Wall Street, released on Christmas Day 2013. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort and was directed by Martin Scorsese. DiCaprio won the Golden Globe award for Best Comedy for his portrayal of Belfort.Now recovered from the traps of his former high-flying lifestyle, Belfort has re-emerged in the business world as a speaker, author and leading voice on the importance of business ethics.

Simon Sinek is an optimist. He believes in a bright future and our ability to build it together.Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organisations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.A trained ethnographer, he is the author of several best-selling books: the global best-seller, Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2011) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). His latest book, The Infinite Game (2018), explores the differences between finite games (football, chess, etc), where the players are known, the rules are fixed and the endpoint is clear and compares them with what he calls the infinite ones: business, politics or even life itself. In the infinite games, the players come and go, the rules can be changed, and there is no defined endpoint. Also, there are no winners and losers in an infinite game. Simon brilliantly argues that many leaders and organizations are struggling because they are applying finite mindsets to infinite games, and teaches how the infinite mindset can be applied to build stronger, more innovative and inspiring organizations.Fascinated by the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in their organisations and in the world – those with the capacity to inspire – he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organisations inspire action.He is best known for popularising the concept of Why, and for the talk he gave on the subject that became the second most watched talk of all time on TED.com.Sinek’s unconventional and innovative views on business and leadership have attracted international attention and have earned him invitations to meet with an array of leaders and organisations, including: 3M, Disney, Pfizer, NBC/Universal, jetBlue, the military, multiple government agencies and entrepreneurs. Sinek has also presented his ideas at the United Nations, the United States Congress and to the senior leadership of the United States Air Force at the Pentagon.
