Last week I was working at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School, with ‘The A Team’ (as I like to call it now)… headed up by John V Willshire, with Fraser Hamilton and Chris Thorpe. We were invited to take over the SBS’s innovation space, creating exploratory workshops and experiments with the fantastic in-house team there, and also to run a subsequent event with some alumni of the prestigious Oxford Strategic Leadership Programme (OSLP). John has mentioned it in a previous post on his Smithery site.
Here’s just a quick video to give a taster of our week:
A fantastic, fast-paced, inspiring, team effort, and a pleasure to be involved.
We’ll be running a project at Oxford University later this month.

I was involved in an awesome project with an awesome bunch of artists end of last year in Frankfurt, Germany. I just realised, I never posted these videos on my blog and I really like them :) So…
There’s more info on my website here:
Our first Arts Hijack launched last week, taking over 354 Coldharbour Lane in Brixton. The event was a two day festival fundraiser, and a true celebration of the incredible diversity and richness of talent within performance, music and arts.

Working with an incredible team of freelancers for Secret Productions and Papa Projects, we managed to build and break a mammoth 8 room, Santa’s Grotto theme party, for Google UK’s Christmas bash, in under 24 hours! (That includes the actual party as well)
I was involved in making some hilarious creations, including a giant ‘Chesterfield style’ sofa, a karaoke area complete with a bespoke ‘fireplace karaoke-star entrance’, set into a ‘faux’ black brick wall, with red glitter mortar, and a christmas tree forest cinema.
Once again, a truely incredible team, making it happen in the face of late deliveries, an enormous workload and plenty of sleep-depravation. Against the odds… really good fun!
As usual, plenty more photos here:
