This week’s guest is none other than Steven Bartlett: a millionaire by age 23, a bestselling author, acclaimed host of The Diary Of A CEO podcast, and the youngest ever Dragon on Dragons’ Den at just 29. Steven Bartlett is undoubtedly one of the most recognised and successful personalities in the media and entrepreneurial space right now so it was an honour to speak with him. Steven and I sat down for an intimate fireside chat at the Dubai Opera House, where we spoke about his upbringing, his first entrepreneurial endeavours, launching Social Chain, the importance of living your truth – and so much more. This raw and honest conversation truly moved me, and I know it will impact you too.
Big thank you to Motivate Media Group and Aldar Properties for the opportunity to interview one of this generation’s greatest thinkers.
