Mark Shayler’s Do Disrupt Workshop: London, February 26th 2016:

This was my first Do Workshop.

As The Do’s oldest ever intern, I was attending Do Disrupt to watch, listen, learn and take a few shots.

A nice cushy, out-of-the-office, kick-back Friday.

Or so I thought.

Instead, I was hit by a truck: A truck driven by, or should that be; a truck called Mark Shayler:

A truck loaded with insights, innovative ideas, challenging questions, hands-on exercises and new possibilites. (Not to mention a manifest of good humour, immense patience and practical advice.)

Mark put a shift and a half into that day at Ubrew:

I hope, (actually I know, from talking to the attendees over a few choice beers afterwards) that everybody not only got their moneys-worth, but they also got the go-to-guy going forward with all their ambitions.

Before leaving you with a few shots below, from the family Album on the day; here are a few more places you can find Mark at his best:

A powerful talk at The Do Lectures Wales: ‘Why we need to design better things, not design better’

Plus a couple of blog posts: ‘When good gets in the way of great.’ And: ‘There’s nothing more expensive than cheap design.’ (Check out the number of views and likes that post got.)

Now, finally, in the cliched spirit of; a picture is worth a thousand #hashtags, here’s my photographic record of a quite amazing day, with a group of wonderfully inspirational, motivated people:

“Companies rarely change too early. They almost always change too late.”

“Ensure your company’s biggest successes are in the future, and not in the past.”

“It’s not sufficient to do things better, we need to do better things.”

“The best innovations solve problems that people didn’t know existed.”

“The secret is to predict what your customer wants before they know.”

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
