Inspirational Thinker

Icelandic artist Björk Guðmundsdóttir. I have loved her since the 90s – and I’m still bowled over by her tremendous talent. A visionary and a master of her many crafts, be it singing, song writing, producing, performing, fashion, digital media etc. She is absolutely, unapologetically her authentic self. She transcends boundaries and inspires me to take risks artistically: “If you want to make something happen that hasn’t happened before, you’ve got to allow yourself to make a lot of mistakes. Then the real magic will happen.”

Achille Gaggia (Italian coffee genius) – he took 2 traditional materials (hot water & coffee) and by doing something different (passing water through the grounds, not pouring it on) made the perfect drink.  Love the way he thought differently about basic materials.

Inspirational Thinker

Cicero – Famous for lots of things – and a flawed character in many ways, but what impresses me most is the fact he stuck to his principles under huge pressure to change and in the end paid the ultimate price for his beliefs. I like to think if he was alive today he’d be precisely the kind of inspirational politician we’re so sorely lacking.

Christopher Hitchens (author and journalist) – incredibly clever but also brave, honest, funny and prolific. Open minded and not afraid to change his mind. He educated me, challenged me (had to re-read lots of his sentences!), made me laugh, made me cross. Always made me think.

Inspirational Thinker

Ada Lovelace (1815 – 1852). A woman truly ahead of her time. Daughter of Lord Byron, she was introduced to Charles Babbage in 1833 and his (incomplete) Analytical Engine. The engine is the ancestor of modern computers. Uniquely, she understood the potential of this device as a general-purpose machine and by 1842 she had published a document that contained the first ever algorithm, and so she is credited as the first “computer programmer”. Her life was cut short by cancer, aged 36, but her work went on to inspire Alan Turing and his work on the first modern computers in the 1940s.

Herbert Spencer (Philosopher and Sociologist) – Spencer coined the popular phrase ‘survival of the fittest’ that was later popularised by Darwin. This all-encompassing expression applies more today than it ever has, whether it’s animals fighting back from the edge of extinction or businesses competing for customers.

I like the story of how Edwin Land invented the instant photograph – his young daughter got upset that she could not see instantly a photograph he had just taken which then led to him developing polaroid film and cameras. He was always inventing new things through the perfect use of lateral thinking and reframing. Steve Jobs was a huge fan so I guess that’s the best endorsement!

Michel de Montaigne (Renaissance philosopher). He wore his genius lightly. He used small observations from his everyday life (about wine, his pet cat, his declining sexual appetite) as a stepping stone to address the ‘what it is to be human’ stuff.

Terence Conran’s influence is to be found everywhere – in homes, shops, museums and restaurants. His belief in intelligent design showed us that everyday objects – everything from lights and kitchen equipment to furniture – could be efficient to use as well as pleasing to live with, and that these benefits could be accessible to all: when he first opened Habitat in the early 1960s, the range was deliberately conceived to be within the reach of anyone on a teacher’s salary.

Theodor Suess Geisel (Dr. Seuss) (children’s author and educationalist) for being ahead of his time in tackling contentious issues through his children’s stories such as environmentalism, consumerism and racial equality.  He also helped tackle illiteracy by challenging the status quo of children’s reading books using dull and formulaic stories

Chris Barton, who alongside Dhiraj Mukherjee, Philip Inghelbrecht and Avery Wang created Shazam; the music recognition software.

 Even before Smartphones I remember dialling 2580 on my phone and holding the phone to the music I wanted identified, and waiting for a text from Shazam to send me the title and artist of the song.  When the app came about it made it even easier to identify any song you hear on the radio/in a shop/TV, and when using in combination with Spotify, I can identify and download a song I hear that I like within minutes.  The Shazam app has been downloaded over 1 billion times in 190 countries and was bought by Apple Inc in Dec 2017 for a reported £300 million.

Inspirational Thinker

David Attenborough (naturalist and broadcaster) inspires because he’s a pioneer. He brought the splendour of the natural world into our homes over many years.  I doubt anyone on the planet has experienced so many unique events. Certainly no-one will ever be able to again.
