Paul Hughes is an internationally renown speaker – with over 15 years experience to diverse audiences in 35 countries.
He is recognized for his unique performances where he draws as he speaks along ten meters of paper – a unique visual-verbal experience, where the audience is captivated by the revealing of stories. He calls this performance Ten Meters of Thinking.
Ten Meters of Thinking stimulates individual and organizational transformation – transformation that begins by realizing success is not a point, success is a path. Along that path, Ten Meters of Thinking offers timeless stories, to be applied to timely contexts – throwing new light on old concerns. In revealing these stories, new visions and new narratives are created for us to live by.
Individual and organizational transformation is an essential, necessary, and a continuous process. In our interconnected world we are facing global challenges, as we have never faced before. And Paul believes that these challenges are in essence design challenges and we can feel empowered to address them once we embrace transformation and realize that the past is there for us to analyze, however the future remains for us to design.
‘Design’, Paul says, ‘is now the difference that makes the difference’.
