Brian Rose of London Real – Escaping The Alcatraz Mind
A former banker and trader, Brian Rose started London Real TV from his flat in the Shoreditch district of London with just a couple of webcams four years ago. Millions of views and many incredible guests later, he has a TED talk under his belt – and he created a new learning academy for people who want to build their best self.
