Otherwise here are a few other things that I do...
I have been giving off-the-wall talks at design conferences for 13 years, I’ve helped run mobile UX and fintech events and have spoken about innovation at the World Food Programme 3 times in the last 2 years. I have also given rowdy talks on research to businesses like Iwoca and Attest.
About 10% of my working days are pro-bono. I used to run a magazine and edgy events to support graduate creatives, I've mentored inner city entrepreneurs and most recently co-founded an initiative to deliver 300,000 meals to the NHS during the pandemic. I'm always open to a chat about applying rapid innovation techniques to charitable causes.
I've been around the block, about 1.5-2 times. I've worked in two startups and personally mentored about 40-50 of them at accelerators including Google for Startups and LMarks. I ask them tough existential questions and show them ways to answer them. I am open to advisory positions and offer decent rates for founder mentoring work. And if you're looking to break into the industry from an underrepresented background, I'll happily meet to see if I can give you a leg-up.
