Creating the Career Hacker"

Copcutt is passionate about personal and association branding because he knows that the only barriers to doing what you love are those you put in place yourself. After two attempts at passing his basic Math qualification and his biology teacher labelling him an idiot, it was ironic that these subjects were the basis of a successful corporate career that started in banking and ended in biotech. After reading Tom Peters "Brand You 50" in the late 1990's and realising that he had taken many of the actions and suggestions that Peters wrote about, Copcutt knew that he had to help others do the same. This would later form the basis of his "Career Hacker" approach.
