  • How Dyslexia Can Be Your Superpower
    How Dyslexia Can Be Your SuperpowerUntil 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

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.
    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.
