Lauren Currie; named a top 30 women under 30 changing the world by ELLE, on challenging the norm and the power of confidence

August 10, 2016

Episode #30 is now live on the air! I interviewed a Scottish designer, innovator, entrepreneur and TEDx speaker who describes herself as “an ambassador of people”. Her popular service design blog; has attracted over 350,000 readers and she is now the Head of Service Design at The Good Lab in the UK

Management Today named her as one of the UK’s top 35 business women under 35, and ELLE also featured her as one of 30 women under 30 changing the world.

Some of the topics we spoke about include:

  • Why fulfilment and finding meaning look different for every person
  • How the design industry and education providers can better work together
  • Encouraging diversity onstage through her social intiative #upfront
  • And why she believes that confidence is the key to unlocking most problems we face

I present to you, the super intelligent and wildly thought-provoking… Lauren Currie!
