0063: Amir Bormand - Technology Recruitment

Amir Bormand - Share Your Story Podcast.jpeg

Amir Bormand is the Co-founder of Elevano, a California- based recruitment company, who helps hundreds of people find more fulfilling jobs every year.

Amir is unique to the recruiting industry because he is a former engineer himself— and could still jot out a few lines of code! He’s seen the technical recruiting game from both sides, and during his engineering career, he constantly saw agency recruiters take shortcuts and use deceptive practices all for their own benefit.

That’s why, in his current position as Co-founder of Elevano, he encourages a candidate-centric approach to every aspect of technical recruiting and sales. His overriding desire is to smash the negative stigma left by current recruitment strategies, and replace it with a more transparent, honest and empathetic service offering.

When he’s not working, Amir enjoys spending time with his families and traveling. He and his wife have a 5-year-old daughter, who keeps him busy with the latest trends in Disney cartoons, you might just catch him humming Disney movie theme songs!

0057: Nick Davies - Really Great Training

Podcast - Nick Davies - Really Great Training.jpeg

Hi, I’m Nick Davies. I’m a tall Mancunian, Blue Peter badge winner and the bloke who owns ‘The Really Great Training Company.’ My background’s in law and business. I’ve been a sales rep, a sandwich maker, and even sold shoes for Russell & Bromley for 6 years - where David Beckham and Vera Duckworth were customers. I’ve also been the director responsible for business development at two limited companies, and started 4 businesses of my own. 

I qualified as a barrister as a mature student and even practised … for 6 months (the wig just wasn’t me.) As a trainer and coach in a range of communication skills, I travel the country, teaching bankers, lawyers, actuaries, civil servants and business people how to pitch, present, network, sell and persuade. 

My clients range from global legal practices and financial institutions to small, owner-managed firms as well as The Royal Household (a kind of more grand owner-managed firm.) 

When I’m not training and coaching I perform stand-up, deliver after-dinner speeches and host award ceremonies. Over the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to have worked and shared stages with a buffet of reasonably well-known people; including: The Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo, Sir Digby Jones, Jenny Bond, Kate Adie, Roger Black MBE, Alan Hansen, Frankie Boyle and Alastair Campbell.

0056: Adrian Nantchev - Entrepreneur

Adrian Nantchev - share your story podcast.jpeg

Indecision! After graduating from university in 2014 I was unsure what to do. By chance I discovered Coursera and learnt about some subjects I had an interest about. 

Starting with USA's constitution and then branched into economics, finances, marketing and business management.

Coming from non business background all the topics were new to me and a lot of the things. I was beginning to learn learning about were in stark contrast to what I had been brought up on.

Soon after I discovered my love of reading. Reading books such as the '4 Hour Work Week', 'Rich Dad Poor Dad', 'Richest Man in Babylon', 'Think and Grow Rich'. After reading them, there was no turning back.

In late November 2014 I decided to start my first business; Game Overload. It was launched in late January 2015. In the end I bit off more than I could chew with this business. I tried pivoting the business, but the passion slowly burnt out.

Always learning, always reading, always expanding comfort zone, always creating win-win scenarios.

Always adding value into the world. Masters do whatever it takes.

Remember, you either win or you learn. And by learning you are developing deeper roots for success. You can do more good in the world when you are rich.

How you do anything, is how you do everything" - T. Harv Ecker.

Mastering the Magic of Gender Dynamics

It’s no longer a game of hard line selling your services and products, the name of the game is building relationships, growing your following, leading a tribe, the future legacy you want to attract is seeded in every conversation you engage in.

As an International Speaker, Changemaker and Gender Dynamics Expert, Pauline T. Crawford-Omps has 30 years of experience in corporate C-suites in the UK and Asia Pacific. She has led corporate and government projects in UK and Malaysia, bringing leaders and teams into a new paradigm for collaboration and conversation. Experienced PhD in Entreprenology, specialising in Business Behaviour, and acclaimed as #MissMagicalConversations, she has a passion to show men and women how to value their differences and work together to deliver that extra zest that beats the rest!

New to the US, I am fast making an impact spotlighting the fast-changing MIND-Field of business and life success for MEN as they discover that ‘working together’ with WOMEN truly requires a new mindset of trust and honesty. Not easy with the pressure of the #metoo movement and high-profile cases highlighted in the news.

As business and life merge, men and women need to create solutions together through magical conversations. The co-creation of new rules between gender dynamics is not merely a suggestion but an imperative for exponential growth. When an open mind perspective and a high level of heart-logic creates not only expansive results today but a legacy for tomorrow’s generation. Where a little magic in your communication goes a long way to ensuring not only your wealth in deal-making but good health in your whole life!

We are transitioning into an epoch marked by an aware and awakened human species. In order to succeed, we urgently need to make better decisions on an individual and collective basis. We do this by developing better leaders who also happen to be the curators of all our most precious resources.

  1. Making a significant impact in the lives of our clients, colleagues and collaborative partners.
  2. Being authentic by living and speaking our truth. We say what we do and do what we say in a timely, professional, appropriate and transparent manner.
  3. Enjoying the freedom to be our creative selves without limitations. Our freedom extends to our genius mind, health, career, money, relationships, spirituality and contribution to and influence in society.
  4. We treat all with compassion by seeking to understand and support our stakeholders to the best of our ability.
  5. By tapping into Universal Creativity, we develop the most powerful solutions for our clients.
