Armstrong, Hashemi and Leadbeater Amongst ‘10 Biggest Thinkers’ – Director Magazine

23rd February 2011

Director magazine has voted scientist Rachel Armstrong amongst Britain’s top ten original thinkers – an elite group of people who have produced big ideas which have helped shape the UK's economic recovery.

Armstrong has collaborated with both artists and architects to create a new experimental space to explore scientific concepts and re-engage with the fundamental creativity of science. As a keynote speaker she challenges well-established concepts and inspires with her lateral ideas – truly a ‘big thinker’!

Others on their list include Charles Leadbeater, a journalist turned innovation consultant and co-founder of Participle, a public service innovation agency, and Sahar Hashemi, Co-founder of Coffee Republic and founder of Skinny Candy. Both are enriching and instructive speakers who naturally motivate with their tales of pushing the boundaries of their capabilities and ideas to achieve success.

The rest of the list comprises Philip Graves, a former market research manager, who believes that an increased availability of data is a basic human right; Sir Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the world's first Web page and browser and John Kay, Author, economist, and founding director of the Said Business School.

Topping off the list are Sir Ken Robinson, an expert on creativity and education; Nic Marks, founder of the Centre for Well-being at the New Economics Foundation, and Jonathan Ive, Apple's senior vice-president of industrial design.
