The Value Exchange podcast – Episode 60 – Out now!

 

Delighted to be sharing with you this week, the story of Mike Bond, co-founder and Studio Director at Bond and Coyne, Lecturer and co-founder of WonderWhat, an educational tool to inspire young people into creative careers.  Mike shares with us how his creative journey began at the age of 5, with Saturday Pottery lessons, an activity he so enjoyed he kept up until his mid teens. He tells us about how being academically able at school led to most people steering him in the direction of  a “proper job” and a non creative career path. However,  London became his destiny and he ended up at Central St Martin’s College of Art. Here he met his co-creator and now business partner on day 1, he felt connected with the world like never before and felt that his ideas were being listened to. Mike tells a wonderful story of how, as a student, he took his ideas to the Design Council, and through that moment of bravado led to an amazing project, connections and validity. On being offered an opportunity to teach others, something he soon discovered gave him much meaning, he wanted others to feel that good ideas can come from anyone and when there is no obvious way to solve a problem then don’t hesitate to invent something to fix it! Plus much much more. Check it out!

Enjoy!
