6. Speeches & Workshops


Let’s be blunt about it – the world of workshops has got itself a bad name, and everyone has a suitably dreadful anecdote about at least one dire ‘ideation session’. So…with that very much in mind, our sessions on cultural / social / NPD / branding trends are aimed to be as genuinely actionable as possible. (We often utilize our links with a wide range of ‘interesting contacts’ who act as additional catalysts for concept generation via their disruptive thinking).

On the speeches side, as mentioned in the ‘About’ section, Sean has given speeches for well over a decade; in Asia, America and across the EU. Recent talks have been on Disruption, Innovation, Youth Culture, Trend Forecasting, and ‘Good Business’. (Please see www.brandpositive.org for specific info).

He’s been a University Lecturer for many years (at Central St Martins and the London College of Fashion) and has also lectured at places inc the Royal College of Art, Chelsea College of Art, and the Miami Ad School. In the UK, he has chaired & spoken at many events for magazines inc Admap, Contagious, Marketing, Fashion Week, Marketing Week; and for numerous comms/media agencies.
