How to... make good mistakes

Venue: WeWork, Aldgate Tower, 35 Whitechapel High St, London E1 8EP

For our second How To… event, we asked five ambitious, entrepreneurial alumni to help us answer a simple question: how can you turn mistakes to your advantage? At WeWork Aldgate Tower, a vibrant space for innovators and businesspeople to work towards their greatest goals, we heard a range of stories from our speakers about how their mistakes taught them essential lessons.

How to... be creative

Venue: October Gallery, 24 Old Gloucester St, London, WC1N 3AL

If you think some people are just born and destined to be creative (and you’re not one of them), think again. Experts say we all have a wellspring of creative energy. The secret is how to tap into it.

At our How to... be creative event, our alumni speakers provided alumni with simple guides of how to get their creative juices flowing. Not only do they work in the creative industries but they also started their own creative processes – whether it be a ground-breaking app that works as your personal digital curator to starting a network which seeks to redefine the notion of arts patronage in Asia.

Watch these tips from Jennifer Caroline Ellis (Head of Projects and Development at Edouard Maling Gallery), Anna Lowe (creator of the mobile gallery curation app SMARTIFY), and Guy Armitage (Co-founder and CEO of Zealous.) 

How to... be innovative

Venue:  Health Foundry, Canterbury House, 1 Royal Street. London, SE1 7LL

With innovation becoming the buzzword of the decade, we asked our alumni speakers for ideas to spark innovative thinking. Our speakers came from all walks of life, ranging from surgeons using innovative techniques to transplant organs, entrepreneurs matching ground-breaking early-stage ideas and technologies with relevant industry contacts, and democratising the way science is funded and backed by the public.

How do we choose the right food to ensure we truly nourish our body? How is food a signifier of culture and how does it affect what we choose to eat?

At our next How to…event held at the Pinterest London HQ, our alumni speakers provided us with answers to these questions. Well-versed in the world of nutrition, cooking and healthy eating, they had a variey of insights into on how to eat healthily and have a balanced diet
