About this Event

In collaboration with Penguin Books, we're delighted to welcome Be More Pirate author Sam Conniff to Edinburgh.

This event is co-hosted by The University of Edinburgh Business School and Edinburgh Young Professionals.

About Be More Pirate

Whatever your ambitions, ideas, and challenges, this book will revolutionise the way you live, think, and work today and tomorrow. Pirates didn't just break the rules, they rewrote them. They didn't just reject society, they reinvented it. Pirates didn't just challenge the status quo, they changed everyf******thing. Pirates faced a self-interested establishment, a broken system, industrial scale disruption and an uncertain future. Sound familiar?

Pirates stood for MISCHIEF, PURPOSE and POWER. And you can too.

In Be More Pirate, Sam Conniff Allende unveils the innovative strategies of Golden Age pirates, drawing parallels between the tactics and teachings of legends like Henry Morgan and Blackbeard with modern rebels, like Elon Musk, Malala, and Banksy. Featuring takeaway sections and a guide to build you own pirate code 2.0, Be More Pirate will show you how to leave your mark on the 21st century.

So what are you waiting for? Join the rebellion now.
