Brighton Strategy and Planning Meetup
On Wednesday, I spoke at the Brighton Strategy and Planning Meetup, alongside Matthew Bagwell from AKQA, and Krystle Lampshire from Comic Relief.
The theme for the night was Attention. I’ve been looking at the way attention works within the culture industries, and shared some approaches that I’ve found promising, borrowed from wherever I could find them. It was something of an open-ended presentation, with more questions raised than answers offered, but it was a useful exercise in marshalling my thoughts, and fun to get up and speak to this crowd.
Slides linked below, together with the key sources I made reference to:
- John Berger, Ways of Seeing, Episode 4
- Clayton Christensen, “job to be done”
- Amazon and Hachette, dealing with abundance
- Art Happens, crowdfunding platform set up by National Art Collections Fund
- Adolph Alfred Taubman, threshold resistance and the design of shopping malls
- Joseph Beuys, “everyone is an artist”
- D.School Design Thinking Process

Thanks to everyone at Brilliant Noise for letting me speak, and putting on a great event.
