NOMINATE A PIRATE
Who are the finest 21st Century Pirates? Who are those breaking and re-making the rules at the edges of the map and fighting for a fair share, an equal voice and more rum? Who are the rebels we can look up to? Who are the rule-breakers we can learn from? Who is using the power of pirates to innovate the future?
To help us celebrate the pirate-like leaders of today, putting their neck on the line to stick two fingers up to the Powers That Be, in their fight for a fairer future, please nominate the people you think are living the Be More Pirate manifesto and making waves we should all follow?
Pirates are everywhere. Throughout history, every time there's abject market failure, new territories are discovered or the odds favour the view, pirates emerge on the horizon to challenge, innovate and contest the status quo, whilst getting rich quick, or Dyin' Tryin'.
Now is no different. Our governments favour the few. Our institutions can't deliver on our dreams. Our leaders lack imagination. Our favourite brands and businesses fall short on our expectations and no one, but no one, is coming to save us.
So, waste your breath complaining, or create a rebellion? Hope it's going to get better or get professional about rule breaking? Check instagram again, or step up, cause some good trouble, turn pirate and bring about a modern mutiny?
As we re-imagine pirates from the rogues we were mis sold, to the role models we need, we're asking for your nominations, so we can share their stories, celebrate their success, showcase their strategies and inspire more pirates, grow the crew and build the rebellion.
