Interviews with Interesting People

Life is a massive adventure and we, the people, make up the epics in every story. In the modern age of digital iconography, it has become easy to forget about community and context. The globe is a place of giving and learning; I have been blessed to gain so much from the habitual human, the people on our planet. This podcast is a way to share those stories, explore those experiences and bring to life, through dialogue our world of wonder. Black Dragon podcasts explore a range of subjects with regular visits into the worlds of business, sport and geo-political projects. We love to look at our subject matter through the eyes of ordinary people, gain insights into their worlds & learn how to be better tomorrow at what we do today.

Theo Bennett is a first-time author, making his publishing debut with a trilogy, centered around the anti-hero, Virtutis, a Roman warrior.
Theo is the Principal of TechForce, a high-level placement agency specializing in human resource talent. In true artistic fashion, he has removed himself from the rat race to his own creative enclave, a remote location on the west coast of the U.S.
In this episode we explore the rationale for writing, the meaning of the "Warrior code" and how it applies to the 21st century. 
A native of New Zealand with life rooted in rugby, and jiu-jitsu, Theo is a breed of quiet professional who thinks deeply and moves silently through the world we live in.
