Impressions of Shoreditch

Design & Architecture, Strategy Talk

Shoreditch, this special corner of east London remains hugely popular. By and large Shoreditch remains young, cool, creative, upbeat and fun, as the digital scene thrives and with a viable art en fashion scene. It is a boost for small enterprises. The Trampery (Bevenden street) of tech entrepreneur Charles Armstrong is for instance located here. Feel the Shoreditch vibe underneath.

And I ended up at this great event “Worlds Collide” organised by APG London. Where speakers from the world of politics (Alistair Campbell), military (General Mike Jackson), advertising (David Droga) and activism (Jeremy Gilley) gave some inspirational thoughts and perspectives on strategy. Read here the blogpost “Believe you can, you’re halfway there” about the most inspirational thoughts of Droga and Campbell (in Dutch).
