A book collection to encourage the Millennials to consider new ways to achieve self-fulfilment and approach mentors.

Those Who Inspire is a book collection first and foremost, which purpose is to encourage the Millennials to pursue their dreams and believe in themselves. We give them local role models and mentors from their own country.

Each book is a source of inspiration to the youth of a given region of the world, featuring several ways to achieve self-fulfilment, through a scope of inspiring, fascinating and accessible stories of men and women from all walks of life, the Inspiring People – IP.

OMAN

Oman is our first book of Those Who Inspire book collection. We launched it in English and Arabic back in 2012 in Muscat. Many thanks to our Omani friends for trusting us in this first and unique adventure and supporting the Omani youth.

UAE

60 Emiratis from all walks of life across the 7 Emirates tell their stories to inspire and motivate the Emirati youth. The launch took place in 2014 in Dubai.

NIGERIA

2 years to complete our first book on the African continent. Discover the surprising and amazing stories of 90 Nigerians from all around the country. After the launch in September 2015 in Abuja, we donated 15.000 to the Nigerian youth.

HONG KONG

Hong Kong, place of diversity and contrast, as you will discover reading the stories of 67 Inspiring Hong Kongers, all mentors to the Hong Kong youth. This first book in Asia was launched in 2016.

How do we produce our books?

We meet face to face with all the IP, discover their story, experiences, and advice to younger generations, and we turn their words into a beautifully written narrative, just long enough to capture their voice and to celebrate who they are and how they’ve made an impact. With about 60 to 90 people portrayed in each book, we include people from all backgrounds and walks of life, both famous and everyday heroes – anybody who is living their dreams and simultaneously adding real value to the people around them.

How do we get the books into the hands of as many Millennials as possible?

The books' distribution is done within the same spirit as its creation: Donate a maximum of books to youth. No young person should have to pay for it. We partner with companies who receive half of the books for their young employees and training center. The other half is donated to all public universities. A few months later you can also read it and share it online for free.

Inspiring story

Simon Murray, CBE, has lived a life of intrepid pursuits, always carving out his own path. He moved to Hong Kong fifty years ago and was one of the few expatriates who stayed. His contribution to the country is expansive and impossible to fully measure. For him, it has always been a matter of following his instincts and listening to others when it counted most. “When I look back, it’s impressive to think about all the people who have been there at every crossroads in my life, people who have guided or inspired me. But really my life has been like an unplanned scramble up the mountain.
