About me

After 10 years of selling ‘stuff’ across the globe I wanted a business that reflected my need for a mindful life. In 2013 The Indytute was launched in the Christmas gift department of Selfridges. 90 workshops were held over the run up to the festive season as customer's hula hooped, shimmied and paper cut in the middle of the tinsel. It was to be the start of a new kind of gifting. I work with and curate experiences from London’s top talent. The experiences also reflect the changing focus of their customers. Time was when gin was ‘mother’s ruin’, and a paddle board was something you might find on a beach. Gin still might be the ruin of mother, but as least she can enjoy it in the back of mini cooper en route to the finest gin bars in the capital, and Stand Up Paddle Boarding around the waterways of the Regent’s Canal is so much better than being a spectator on the towpath. Indytute will inspire you to take on the capital. The Indytute has been up and running for 6 years and since COVID has put a temporary halt on real life experiences has recently launched WFH Wellness and Experiences. Order 1 - 100 creative kits delivered to your staff across the UK and enjoy time over Zoom together doing something mindful or just really, brilliant fun.
