  • How Dyslexia Can Be Your Superpower
    Until very recently, many sperm banks rejected donors that had dyslexia - it was perceived to be a disability. However, with 35% of entreprenuts being dyslexic and 40% of self-made millionaires - including Richard Branson, Anita Roddick, Steve Jobs, Jo Malone, Walt Disney, Holly Tucker, Albert Einstein, and countless more - this has made me reflect on my own dyslexia. I’ve found that the skills that dyslexia amplifies are in-fact superpowers, not only if you want to be an entrepreneur - but f
  • 10 tips to help build diverse teams - If we're all the same how can we think differently!
    There is now endless research showing that diversity is good for business, good for innovation and good for creativity. A Harvard Business School study found that teams with colleagues from different backgrounds and experiences come up with more creative ideas and methods of solving problems. Another study by the London Business School found that more gender-balanced teams better promote an environment where innovation can flourish. And the list goes on! In the end, if we’re all the same, how ca

  • Unconscious bias: why there is no quick fix and how we can work together to resolve it.
    We recently launched a ‘blind recruitment’ tool - where candidates are assessed solely on their skills & creative output - with the aim of giving recruiters the option to challenge their unconscious biases in the first stage of shortlisting candidates. Of course, in a bias-free world, we wouldn't need 'blind recruitment'. But until then, like ‘blind’ orchestra auditions where musicians are judged solely on their musical quality, it's one of the small drops that can create an ocean of change.
  • BBC Interview: Pip Jamieson - Creativity should not be reserved for those who can afford it
    Almost 10% of the UK’s workforce work in the creative industries, and 9% of the UK’s GDP derives from the Creative Economy (This is more than the UK’s car, life sciences, oil, gas and aerospace industries combined) - so the concept of scaling back investment in creative education is madness, right?. Even more so if we look to the future - we all know the robots are coming. There are three very human traits that machines struggle to automate 1) they don’t have common sense, 2) they don’t understa
