Sometimes I think there are too many TED talks out there nowadays - it becomes so hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. But I love this one. Of course, as a polymath myself I am biased, but I think Ella (who I know from the Do Lectures) makes a great case for why generalists are sorely needed (in a nutshell - cross fertilisation and holistic thinking). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
My new book 'Do Improvise' is out.
I am very honoured to have been asked to be one of the first 'Do' authors and Miranda, who runs Do Books, seduced me into it with the beguiling brief 'it will be rather like a Ladybird book' (for those of you old enough to remember such things).
I am very pleased to have been featured on The Introductor this week. There are some fascinating people on this, I am thrilled to be in their company. Sincere thanks to Ella Saltmarshe, who I met at the Do Lectures, for this.
