Last week I had the pleasure to return to my alma mater, Central Saint Martins College of Arts & Design, for a talk on my career since I graduated 10 years ago. The college has recently moved to a splendid new building in Kings’ Cross, London, and the joy was all mine to see friends, tutors and old faces again, while offering my thoughts to the students now studying product-, industrial design, and innovation management.
While I could bore everyone to tears about all the LEGO models and product lines I have worked on over my career at the LEGO Group, a far more interesting thing to share is the second half of my presentation, which is all about the things I wish I knew when I was a student and my attempt to capture all the things I have learned since. My presentation was mostly a series of stories and anecdotes, captured by the sentences on these slides.
In the meantime – I hope you enjoy them and again, comments are really what blogs are all about so if you feel inspired, drop me a note below.
