Manager, leader, entrepreneur – all words used to describe Naomi Simson.  So with the obligatory red for power dress she was wearing , I expected a firm, controlled presentation from Naomi last night at Success Library.

But no, the red dress didn’t signify power but rather was symbolic of her passionate involvement in her innovative company RedBalloon, and she held the audience in the palms of her very expressive hands, with her sense of humour and friendliness.   Despite the laughter,  she managed to convey some of her beliefs, especially that the four P’s
Passion, persistence, powerfulness and purpose make life experiences more vivid
That happiness is a journey – not a destination
People need more shared good times
That saying thank you [a lot] spreads a sense of well being.

If you want to hear more about this Lady in Red have a look at her book Live what you love and her inspirational blog on happiness at work and home that reaches more than three-quarters of a million followers on LinkedIn. You can also see her on your TV screens in her role as one of the ‘sharks’ on Channel 10’s Shark Tank.
