Favourite TED talk: No special favourite but anything and everything to do with people stretching beyond what they thought was possible. (I consult in innovation and creativity). One I like recently is Angela Dickworth on GRIT – “how success takes persistence”.
Where I went to school: My old school in Essex, UK is now a housing development. School wasn’t as big an influence on me as ongoing learning since I left.
Favourite school lesson: Design and Technology. Back then it was all about making stuff. I now occasionally make stuff as hobbies, but design – the intentional human process behind what everyone does – is now what I teach clients to innovate and improve everything they do.
