A Calculated Leap of Faith
Have you ever had an idea for a side project, perhaps a potential business, but never quite managed to get it off the ground? Let’s turn that idea into a reality.
As a mentor to small businesses at Belfast School of Art and Tiny Books, Christopher has helped turn many an idea into a fully-fledged business. (In quite a few cases, quite big businesses.)
He’ll share some practical advice that will encourage you to stop procrastinating and make the calculated leap of faith you need to, to make your ideas real.
Chris has over two decades experience working as a designer, with clients including the Royal Mail, Absolut Vodka, Booking.com and Nesta; Chris is a co-founder of Get Invited, a social ticketing startup; he was formerly one half of The Standardistas, championing web standards; and – in a past life in the mid-nineties – founded an independent record label, Fällt Publishing, which Chris ran for over a decade, pioneering web audio distribution (many, many years before the iPod was even an idea).
He applies all of the above experience as a Senior Lecturer in Interaction Design at the Belfast School of Art, and working as a mentor to numerous startups. Chris is currently working on an education-focused publishing company called Tiny Books.
