Entrepreneur, Investor, Founder
7 schools, 1 GCSE, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD.
Oliver Bruce, founder, podcaster, investor and CEO of tech-driven content marketing agency PinPoint Media believes that his entrepreneurial flair was due to having to go against the grain at school through necessity.
Oliver believes the education system needs to be more accessible and adapted to individuals of all backgrounds and neurological abilities. With ADHD, Dyslexic and Dyspraxia, Oliver often speaks publicly about how he believes it was at College that ‘education’ for him really took place. School he says was just too "formulaic"...
Having started 2 multimillion pound businesses before the age of 30, one of which secured and then swiftly lost a £12million order with Amazon just weeks after launch, Oliver, claims that he’s been on the most expensive, yet valuable, MBA's anyone can do thanks to the mistakes he's made.
Success in life is subjective, but what isn’t subjective is the determination and want Oliver has to make something bigger and more impactful than the sum of its own parts.
Growing up as a military child means regularly moving all over the world. That constant change, teamed with being neurodiverse, meant that education and learning in the normal way was never Oliver’s forte…
Coping mechanisms and an outlook on life that differed from the norm meant that businesses and entrepreneurship seemed a natural fit for Oliver, albeit unplanned.
