Working with the team at Momentum, we developed ‘Guts & Glory’, a powerful inspirational speaker programme based on the idea of being fearless. Whether that’s in ambition, execution, attitude or thinking.

I am curating the programme and running artist liaison to ensure that every 2-3 months, a memorable and entertaining experience is shared at Momentum HQ that will inspire the agency and give them the balls to go out and make their dreams happen.

Our first speaker was Sam Bompas, one half of the famous jelly-monger duo Bompas and Parr, hailed by The Independent as ‘2 of 15 people who will define the future of arts in Britain’. They’re food architects that spend their lives trying things no one else has the guts to. They’ve worked with the likes of Lord Foster and Heston Blumenthal to create a roof top boating lake made from alcoholic punch, a breathable G&T cloud and a chocolate waterfall. For us they created a tailor-made exploding jelly. Nuts. Take a look at the photos and film.

Next up was digital provocateur Shane RJ Walter, a multi-disciplinary producer, curator, writer, speaker and co- founder and creative director of onedotzero, the global-reaching contemporary digital art, film and design organisation celebrating 15 years at the forefront of digital creativity. Take a look at the photos and film.

Third up was Mr Bingo - ‘the Justin Bieber of illustration’ – speaking about ‘People, information and things’. Suffice to say he had us all in stitches with his acerbic wit, tales of the inspired Hate Mail project, his toilet pose and cross-dressing as a teen.
