I just spent the most amazing morning with 20 of Canada's leading youth, who have just been recognised as this years recipients of the award Canada's Top 20 Under 20.
There were a great group of enthusisatic and engaged individuals who are already making a significant impact in this country, their communities and in the lives of Canadians. Some are running businesses, some non for profit groups and others are involved in leading edge scientific research – and not one of them is even 19 yet and one of them is just 10!
I cannot even remember what I wanted to be when I grew up, let alone accomplish what many of them have done already – truly inspiring and humbling at the same time.
To have had the opportunity to hopefully influence a little of how they approach their brands will be reward enough and hopefully I might even get to mentor a few of them over the next year as they develop their brands.
