Brian Shkodrani is the Founder and CEO of SmartUP Digital. He graduated from AUBG in 2020 and is now working as a marketing strategist and business consultant, helping clients from all over the world transform their business ideas into successful startups. He delivered his TEDxAUBG talk in 2021, but, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this had to be done online from his home. His talk — “Accidents that can change your life”, was based on a personal story and serves as an inspiration to all of us.
It has now been almost a year since Brian’s talk. He remarks that even though he is passionate about inspiring people, doing so online, in front of a camera, was a challenge for him. After having overcome this difficulty so successfully, he says that “the means through which we reach our desired audience do not matter as much as the size of the reached audience and the level of positive impact created”. This is something that has had a positive impact on his life.
Brian also shares that if he were to give another TEDxAUBG talk, the title of it would be either “Why everyone should be an entrepreneur” or “Why life is like a startup.” With his extensive knowledge about effective time management, energy, focus, money, the purpose of contribution, and “the importance of knowing oneself”, in his new talk, he would like to talk about the things we can do to live a fulfilling life.
Brian’s “Ideas worth spreading”, experience and knowledge, earned him the place as one of the great outstanding TEDxAUBG speakers.
