Can you control your own luck? | Richie Empowering Glocally | Kacie Hopkins 2 days ago   17:39

Richie Etwaru peels back the age old enigma of luck. What it really is, what it's not, and how it is within your own power to control. Richie uses his own story of rising from underprivileged roots in Guyana, to his multiple successes (and failures), and what he's learned along the way. Can we truly control our own luck?

An agent of value, Richie is an infector of thought for which there is no cure. His career has been defined by cognitive jujitsu that places people and companies in powerful positions that drive creativity and success.
Rising from simple roots in Guyana, he has become a Chief Digital Officer, COO for technology at a large financial services company, a divisional CIO & CTO at a large investment bank, a co-founder of startups, a head of innovation of a billion dollar software company, an author, and sits on multiple start-up advisory boards.
Richie's own life story and challenges provide him a unique "rags to riches" view of how "luck" works, what it is, what it's not, and how it can be harnessed to your own benefit.
