Being an entrepreneur is all about playing by your own rules and doing things differently. As a founder and business leader it’s exciting to think that you get a chance to model your business in a reflection of your own personal beliefs and do what you love. Good ideas, coupled with purpose that turn into businesses can actually change the world for the better.
In the words of our Community Manager: "Garage Society would be insane if we had 10 Skott Taylors." And we mean that in the best possible way.
Skott is the Founder and Director of NewSeed, a creative consulting agency that cultivates exceptional service cultures through the use of classic and contemporary theatre skills.These innovative front-line training programmes are developed from his extensive performing arts experience which began from a young age, and an acting career that spans from his hometown in Canada to London, Beijing, and now Hong Kong.But theatre only touches the surface of Skott's interests, as he's also had a successful music career and dabbles in Jingju (Peking Opera) as well.We believe training a professional customer service team that knows how to own their role in front of a global audience is not only a differentiator, but a determinant for a business's viability in today's world.
