Corie Dawson & his wife with Roddy Chong
Our Director Corie Dawson’s (right) tour of US conferences continues, where he and his lovely wife Kirsten (left) met one of the world’s greatest violinists and motivational speakers, Roddy Chong (middle).
In an otherwise very traditional industry, Roddy made a name for himself by going against the grain and creating a product no one had ever seen before; a truly unique and captivating violin style (check the video in the comments to see what we mean!!).
It’s this level of innovation the entire Marketing Sweet team strives for every single day.
Musical talents aside, Roddy’s inspiring story of overcoming the odds is proof a vision, hard work and persistence pay off. While early in his career violinist jobs were scarce, Roddy’s unwavering persistence and self-belief have seen him personally performed for the President of the United States, Queen Elizabeth II, the Pope, Oprah, Celine Dion, and countless others!
If there’s anything we learned from Roddy, it’s this: there will always be new challenges just around the corner. It’s how you respond to those challenges that determine your long-term success. Thank you once again for sharing your time with Corie, Roddy!
