In this weeks podcast I playback a keynote talk I gave in London at an event called the 'Commercial Property Summit'. It took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Canary Wharf, London on the 7th March 2020 just 10 days before Ireland went into the full COVID-19 lockdown. I chose this for the second episode because it covers a number of topics that will provide a little background and context to my journey. This was my very first keynote talk to a live audience so I was a little nervous and forgot some of my lines but in general I think it turned out ok. Big thanks to Brendan Quinn for inviting me to speak - I have since participated in a number of online events with Brendan and his BQ Events.
