“A Smith and Wesson beats Four Aces” - Velocity

A session at Like Minds Business Breakfast

Tuesday 26th March, 2013

8:00am to 9:30am (GMT)

Ajaz was 21 when he founded AKQA in 1995. Today his global agency counts Nike, Volkswagen, Google, and Heineken as clients. His proudest moments are “When the people you hire achieve success for your clients,” he says. “The other ecstatic part of my career is when the ideas that we produce are of real interest and use to audiences.”

Come and hear how he grew AKQA from zero to a billion dollar turnover before he was 40, selling an 80% stake to WPP that values the business at £350M along the way. We’ll also be listening to insights from his book “Velocity”, co-authored with the head of Nike Sport, Stefan Olander. A copy of the book is in this months goody bag.

Please note you must book for the breakfast – at £25.00 (priority places for Like Minds Club Members) - as places are limited.

Please bring your tablets, smartphones and your laptops. We actively encourage Tweeting – please use the #LikeMinds hashtag and follow @wearelikeminds
