What I learned from learning to talk (again) at the age of 32


After failing as a software engineer, Ivan Heneghan forged a successful career in the early stages of 3 of the world's largest tech companies - Google, Facebook and Instagram - before a major illness made him rethink everything. These days he works, dog-sleds with huskies in the Arctic, and tells people about how short life is - come along and listen!

Ivan Heneghan is a failed software engineer who became an accidental intrapeneur for 3 of the world's largest tech companies, building an award-winning half-billion dollar business by the age of 27. He has also walked away from his tech career at the age of 37 (don't worry, he came back!), and is now focused on redefining "work".
