Find out how creativity is formed

Find out how creativity is formed, creates a purpose and sets the right vision for the future through creative work. Laura talks about attracting the best talent in the industry and it being a creative's responsibility to not be tempted with adding pointless work into the world.

Laura also covers how technology, digital and science sectors are lacking with only a small quantity of female CV’s and how women are being trained to become smarter by SheSays – a place that help women further their careers.

Take a leap and scare yourself

Laura gives her advice on how to succeed - take opportunities, take a leap and scare yourself. Connect the dots – explore, read, and be curious and have empathy for the person you are creating something for, this is what makes a good creative!   


Black Cab Interviews
The "Black Cab Interviews" are a series of interviews where we take celebrated individuals from the creative sector on a cab ride around London, some to work, some on their way to a pitch, some just on a little jaunt around this fabulous city. The interviews are intended to be indepth and candid, giving the interviewee a place to talk about the industry, themselves and the place they work. If you would like to be involved please get in touch with Christie
