” You don´t have enough experience. ”
The amount of times that has been used as genuine reason not to award someone a job, an opportunity, must be in the millions.

Whilst we all can speak to the many positives that age gives us, there is undoubted proof that age plays against.

The naivety of someone younger, less experienced, is more often than not seen in a negative way but i´m convinced companies of the future have to see positivity in naivety & fast track a higher % of young talent into the nucleus of their business if they want to move forward. Nearly all of the worlds largest newest companies were founded by under-30´s. If you want to innovate in your product, you´ve surely got to innovate in your people.
I have always felt this way about an organisations culture, but i was prompted to post today when i saw a piece of content from Intel which captures the above.

That argument of what it actually is, is for another day.
I will leave you to enjoy the inspiring Intel story / content / ad
