My kindergarten teacher, Mrs Greenman, picked it when she wrote in my report when I was just 4 years old: ‘Stuart Loves Stories!’
Years later, I’m something of a hyper Renaissance Man … Storyteller/ Serial Disruptor/ TEDx MC / Author/ Broadcaster / Reformed Advertising ‘Mad Man’/ Songwriter/ Guitarist & Uke Player/ Passionate Motorcyclist, etc etc etc. Oh, and I write stuff too, such as …
War books (especially World War 2 books)
Ex pat lifestyle (especially Asia expats and Asia expat books)
New business ideas (I’d like to be known for writing the best business books on creative thinking, critical thinking skills and innovative business ideas)
Travel books (I was initially inspired to become a storyteller by the best travel books, especially adventure travel books)
I feel like a truly global citizen, because I’ve travelled to 63.5 countries (I’ll tell you about the little episode at machine gun point in Guatemala some other time), and lived in a further 8 from Australia to Zimbabwe (where I was born). That would explain my funny accent.
