It was such a pleasure to meet Leela Bassi, founder of Arctic Survivor and founder of Above and Beyond Resilience. I did a personal branding photoshoot for her, as part as doing some photos for International Women’s Day. She embodies everything that IWD stands for – being utterly committed to breaking some of the inequality in the world. She is a highly experienced global speaker on Resilience, Growth Mindset, and Unconscious Bias, offering this in English, French and Italian, in person and remotely. I felt really privileged to have a few hours of her wisdom and insight on how she helps motivate others and realise that there are no limits to what you can achieve, big or small.
When she leaves the room she wants her audience to have gained the tools to smash their goals and believe that they can achieve what they thought they might never be able to. “Dig deep and Dig beyond” describes her brand perfectly!
We spent a whole morning together at the lovely Allbright Mayfair, then outside locations in town before getting the Elizabeth Line to my studio in Ealing where we did some great action shots of her giving talks and running training courses. Working with clients like Leela reminds me how much I love my job!
