LONDON, ENGLAND, October 21, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Officially announced at Los Angeles today, Wempy Dyocta Koto, the CEO of Wardour And Oxford will host the new show, which will chronicle his journey across Europe, the Americas, Middle East, Asia Pacific and Africa, in search of inspiring stories of talent, hope and commitment.
As a senior executive of leading communications companies such as Ogilvy, Y&R and Wunderman, Koto rose to become global business director based at San Francisco. Today, he serves as chairman and executive director of many global companies, whilst functioning as CEO of Wardour And Oxford.
Koto said: "When I was young, my mother always encouraged me to search for knowledge. Knowledge does not come to you. You must pursue it, earn it, commit to it, experience it and travel for it - even to the far ends of the world. In all ways, 'The Inspiration Sessions' is a tribute to my mother's words and I am honoured to share the inspiring lives and lessons of great entrepreneurs with our global audience."
In his youth, Koto was featured in television commercials across Asia and even appeared as the character '"Marcus" on the Australian drama "Home & Away," which launched the careers of Heath Ledger, Chris Hemsworth, Dannii Minogue, Isla Fisher, Ryan Kwanten, Melissa George, Julian McMahon, Simon Baker and Naomi Watts.
Koto added: "My goal is to share uplifting stories that raises hopes, renews purpose and encourages people to pursue and fulfil their dreams. The global production also means that 'The Inspiration Sessions' will celebrate stories of entrepreneurship that are lesser known. There is a lot we can gain and learn; from Tokyo to Taipei, Rome to Rio de Janeiro, Sydney to Santiago, Miami to Marrakech and Paris to Panama City, inspiration is in places we may have never searched for."
The debut "Inspiration Sessions" in London features social entrepreneur John Bird, MBE, co-founder of "The Big Issue" magazine fighting global homelessness. Koto also interviews Michelle Mone, OBE, co-founder of the multi-million dollar Ultimo Bra empire made popular by Julia Roberts in "Erin Brockovich", as well as Britain's most famous media and public relations specialist, Max Clifford, whose career includes representation of The Beatles, Simon Cowell, Mariah Carey and a constellation of superstars.
Koto also speaks with Martha Lane Fox about her famous travel booking site lastminute.com and venture capitalist Julie Meyer, MBE, who was named by The Wall Street Journal as one of Europe's 30 most influential women.
Famous model and GQ Woman of the Year turned entrepreneur, Caprice, talks to Koto and a spotlight is shone on rising stars including Aruna Seth, the loved shoe designer of Kate Middleton and Pippa Middleton. Robert Welch of Time Out London's number one tourist attraction, smallcarBIGCITY, talks about his startup journey and Lucian Tarnowski, Europe's youngest World Economic Forum "Young Global Leader" shares his ambition of transforming education and employment. Koto also interviews billionaire Lord Alan Sugar's protege and winner of "The Apprentice", Tom Pellereau.
"The Inspiration Sessions" is creatively led by award-winning director Archie Brooksbank, who has worked on film projects for Britney Spears, The Amazing Spider-Man and British royalty.
CEO of Lime&Tonic Stefan Cordiner said: "Lime&Tonic is proud to sponsor "The Inspiration Sessions". We currently operate in Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Prague and Dubai, and so the recent establishment of our Trafalgar Square office and sponsorship of "The Inspiration Sessions" mirrors our commitment to deliver insider insights and unforgettable social experiences in vibrant London."
Global COO and director of Lime&Tonic London, Blake Wittman, said: "London is a metropolis of ideas, innovation and social transformation. 'The Inspiration Sessions' celebrates the lives, times and experiences of famous London entrepreneurs who are shaping the city's future. We're pleased to advise that international audiences can watch 'The Inspiration Sessions' on global media or stream it through limeandtonic.com/theinspirationsessions."
Sigitas Galdikas, the European-based personal assistant to Wempy Dyocta Koto announced that "The Inspiration Sessions" will next be filmed at Indonesia's capital city, Jakarta, with pre-production currently taking place on the island of Bali.
Galdikas adds: "The world's best business schools such as Stanford, Harvard and INSEAD cannot teach in text books and lecture theatres what an episode of "The Inspiration Sessions" can teach. Wempy is one of the most super-connected men in the world, and watching him interview his friends and global business leaders provides valuable human lessons that cannot be calculated, but can only be lived."
"The Inspiration Sessions" launches with a world media premiere at The Empire State Building in New York City on 1 November, 2012.
