Direct sales and marketing firm, Emora Limited is frequently looking to current events and popular culture for lessons to inspire their entrepreneurs. As such, the company has recently sought towards the Oscar’s for lessons to learn from the most high profile actors, directors and writers.
This year Emora have been genuinely inspired by the life of Get Out director and screenplay writer, Jordan Peele, the latter of which won him an Oscar at this year’s event. Peele is the first black person to win the award in Oscar history since the Academy Awards began in 1929. Peele’s record-breaking win has made headline news across the globe and sets inspiring precedence for other writers and those from varying industries.
In reference to his groundbreaking win, the director had to say “This means so much to me. I stopped writing this movie about 20 times because I thought it was impossible.” Emora has been inspired by Peele’s intense dedication and unwillingness to give up. The company explores this concept in their morning meetings frequently that a strong sense of drive and motivation will always prevail, encouraging their contractors not to give up when they face a challenge in their careers.
Emora recognises how an example such as Peele’s can directly correlate with the traditional and unique road to entrepreneurship. Many young aspiring entrepreneurs will face criticism from others, particularly from outside of the industry, and this is something Peele has dealt with, as of exceptionally recently states Emora. However, with a wealth of experience behind him, the actor-turned-director is set to continue creating incredible cinema that will stand the test of time.
Emora has an active business development programme in place in which they aim to inspire and educate their contractors. Individuals at Emora are exposed to industry experts, one-to-one mentoring and frequent workshops. Managing Director, Lauren Harrison is eager to continue the company’s trend of running company-wide meetings on famous entrepreneurs and success stories. In reference to Jordan Peele’s Academy Award accolade the business owner had to say “Jordan Peele’s story is a great inspiration to our contractors, he has proved that pure resilience and determination will create success, and that’s a lesson we live every day at Emora.”
