Pioneer of the Week: Josh Taylor
A relatively new member of the Pioneers community, Josh Taylor caught our attention this week as he has really been embodying the proactive approach to getting ahead that all Pioneers pride themselves on. As our chosen ‘Pioneer of the Week’, Josh doesn’t just get to enjoy the well-earnt title, he’ll also be in the running to be named ‘Pioneer of the Month’.
Why we’ve chosen Josh
We’ve chosen Josh Taylor as our ‘Pioneer of the Week’, because he’s put together this fantastic video proposal for Sir Richard Branson.
As Josh explains:
“Sir Richard Branson challenged me to see how far under the ocean I can explore. A few months into the challenge, I have put together this proposal video for the JoshingTalk Submersible Project.”
In Josh’s excellent video, he clearly explains his idea and positions two brilliant questions in a simple and effective way to Sir Richard Branson:
1. Which ocean trench would like me to explore?
a. Tonga Trench b. Puerto Rico Trench c. Mariana Trench
2. Can you provide the transport for me, and a few others to visit the trench of your choice?
Josh’s clear and engaging pitching style really makes him stand out and we absolutely loved watching the video and reading about the Submersible Project. Josh’s energy and enthusiasm for exploring new frontiers shows just how much fun you can have in following your dreams.
