“Be More Pirate is a genuinely refreshing, entertaining and inspiring perspective on work, leadership and why we do what we do. But amongst the well researched well handled metaphor of pirate innovation, there's also a clear call for a more radical rethink of where we're going.”

Bruce Daisley, VP Twitter, EMEA

“I watched Sam present Be More Pirate and immediately saw he’s created something that is timely and important. I got him into give the same talk to inspire my entire team. This is an idea that’s going to explode”

Will Hudson, Founder and CEO of It’s Nice That and Anyways.

“Be More Pirate is a brave, original and inspiring concept. We have a shared ethos of challenging the establishment, giving platforms to new voices and ultimately doing things our own way. I am very much looking forward to Sam and Be More Pirate being a part of Bradford Literature Festival in 2018.”

Syima Aslam, Director and Founder of Bradford Literature Festival.
