Juan de Lascurain is Mexican entrepreneur who was born in Mexico City in 1971 and grew up in Monterrey, Mexico. A passionate human being with inclination towards tennis, he shifted to United States to play Tennis at the age of 17. Under guidance of his parents, he started learning tennis at a very young age. Following the philosophy of his mother, "things are possible and that he had a purpose for being in this world. He completed his graduation from Orals Roberts University. He continued playing tennis during his graduation and by the time, he got his degree in International Business, he already got the titles of triathlons and amateur world championships.
After his triathlon career Juan moved to Los Angeles and started coaching tennis to clients involved in the entertainment business in Beverly Hills. That's when he was offered a non-profit TV Network and Juan was offered Juan 30 minutes per week to start his own show. Juan started "Vida Youth", which later became "Dream Big".
He started doodling in 2009 by chance and realized that he has an artistic talent to take up his concept to the fullest. Juan's first doodle was on napkin and notebooks which got an humongous praise from his family and friends. He developed Dream Big to the fullest potential and started painting his little sketches.
This led to the result that merely in four years, he had a collection of over 5,000 graphic designs. This brand became very famous and whole idea of expanding the brand was on the inspiration of following the dreams. Juan launched his brand in over 30 countries with 10,000 different graphic designs. He started inspiring people with his messages which quickly became popular. Juan is now known as corporate speaker who talks about inspiration, motivation and how to achieve dreams in life.
When Speaking Minds was founded in 2007 in New Zealand, little did we envisage that this would grow into an international brand with offices in India and London in less than a decade. We set up the business to share what we had learnt, from the privileges we have had in our jobs – of access to knowledge.
Bringing India to the rest of the world was our driving force.
The dna of our business is genuinely about sharing knowledge with the
world, from thought leaders and experts who are notable achievers in
their field. Raga D'silva quit her highly successful corporate career in
New Zealand in 2007, to set up a dream business of connecting
knowledge, insights, motivation from exceptional talent with the
corporate world, globally.
