Ian Brown: On Meditation, career change and overcoming the challenges of working with Multiple Sclerosis

My first office job was fantastic. It gave me my first taste of travelling and the opportunity to experience different work cultures. But at some point something changed. I learnt meditation from a Buddhist monk as a way to deal with Multiple Sclerosis, a condition that I been living with for the last 23 years.

From corporate to teaching: How a successful career, two redundancies & burn out took me back to my old passion

Over the years, I have fostered a deep appreciation of the world and how geography influences differing cultures, physical processes and ultimately, the future of our planet. Geography is a subject that is crucial for students to understand; to learn how our world has developed, and ultimately to appreciate that they are the custodians of their own fragile inheritance.

The digital marketing career change that shaped my life. From Banking to Online Advertising at Google, Yahoo and Verizon

My first job was as a Bank Clerk in Lisbon. I still remember the branch manager being very surprised and wanting to talk to my mom once I told her that I wanted to quit. It was very kind of her to do that because she also had kids my age and didn’t want me to make a wrong decision that I would later regret. But it was nevertheless funny that she wanted to talk to the mom of a grown-up man.

For me, what is also incredibly important, and it is also one of my biggest motivations is to set a good example for my children. I don’t want them to stay in a career that doesn’t suit them, just because it is well paid. I wanted to teach them to follow their dreams and to live a good life, full of meaning and accomplishment. The only way to teach them that is to do it myself.
