When I lived in Venice many years ago, although my days were filled with working on Venetian boats, I never really spent much time rowing them. A recent invitation to a dear friend’s wedding meant a return to the lagoon with my wife, and a chance to indulge in an early morning rowing lesson and […]

I can’t believe that my journey into my first ‘proper adult’ job began a year ago. Bright eyed, bushy tailed and full of gin, I’d recently completed my Communications and Media degree at Bournemouth University and was ready to take on the world. Having done some work experience at Spring the year before, I knew […]

For my latest cultural expansion trip, I followed my stomach and attended Wing Fest 2018 – a celebration of the humble chicken wing in grand fashion. This event brought together 35 of the UK’s best chicken wing street food stalls, each serving up two different wings: their version of the Buffalo wing and a ‘wild […]

Hired Education

I recently had the privilege of taking part in a lecture series entitled “Life after Lectures” at University of Suffolk. I thought it fitting to call my presentation ‘Hired Education’, as I would cover what I have learned and experienced during my first year in the creative industry. This series of talks from creative directors, freelancers, […]

For the last few months, we have been reshaping Spring to field, in the words of Ken Segal, “small groups of smart people”. It’s allowing me to realise my vision of Spring as a true industry disruptor: a thing of extraordinary and unexpected brilliance, often popping up in equally extraordinary and unexpected places. Lead by […]

This summer I took a trip out there on Southwold’s Coastal Voyager. It’s exciting to see the land from the sea – Southwold, of course, looks enormously pretty and self-contained, […]
