Stories and insights from the world’s most inspiring and iconic people
BecomingX was set up with one purpose. To create a world where everyone can realise their potential.

Despite being eternal optimists, they are worried. They are worried that many people believe that ‘success’ is about how much money you make, the car you drive or how many likes you get on social media. They are worried that ‘talent’ is seen as some mythical genetic force possessed by the few, rather than the product of determination, hard work and experience. They are worried that our education systems are not adequately preparing young people for the future. Most of all, they are worried that most people do not realise what they are really capable of achieving.

So they’ve set out to change that. By combining their deep understanding of high performance with the stories and insights from the world’s most inspiring and iconic people, they aim to help people understand what it takes to succeed, to raise their aspirations and to build the skills and confidence to realise their potential.
