The '(2)3D' Breakfast
We’re back! We’re thrilled that our monthly breakfasts will be in person again from September. Our first 3D speaker of this new era is, ironically, the founder and MD of 23D.
Like many of our most interesting speakers, Marc Convey has taken a somewhat unconventional route to get to where he is today. He overcame trauma as a teenager before going on to get a degree in business. He played poker semi-professionally and then neatly combined his twin loves of poker and travel by crisscrossing the globe for a decade, blogging, producing and commentating on poker tournaments.
He then spotted a gap in the market for a certain kind of media production and founded 23 Digital, now renamed 23D. The company moved away from the world of gambling to create films for businesses that need to market the good that they are doing.
Marc says the pandemic taught him the importance of aligning your personal values with those of your business. But it took devastating revenue loss, a major pivot, two rebrands in six months and, marvellously, a eureka moment in the shower to set him on the path he’s on today.
So come join us in September when we’ll be delighted to see you once again. No poker faces though, please!
