Disruptive innovation, is it for everyone?

‘Innovation’ – for many organisations the term is part of their company DNA, whilst others toy with the concept. Neither stance is right or wrong; some companies do well without constant innovation and others need to innovate just to survive the next quarter. Open or closed innovation? Again, it also doesn’t matter, some organisation will […]

Will there be an IoT revolution in the food and beverage industry?

I recently had an article published on BeverageDaily.com talking about IoT in the food and beverage industry. In that I suggested that we are not quite yet at the point that the value of the functionality that can be achieved by this enabler (or at least the functionality that has been thought of) is more […]

Strong and stable leadership in a changing world

Ok, ok, so maybe the title is deliberately chosen to attract your attention – and maybe your indignation – but a particular change in leadership at the Royal College of Art in London, UK is especially interesting to me. Sir Jony Ive has been appointed as Chancellor of the RCA, succeeding Sir James Dyson. Although Sir […]

Technology and Artisanship – strange bedfellows

My colleague Steve Thomas and I attended the “Caffé Culture” show at London’s Olympia Conference Centre on Tuesday 23rd May. The show was aimed at those in the Café and Coffee Shop industries. I was attending to see how the various products, services and technologies on show could change or enhance the customer and employee […]

The power of the vacuum – insight from the Japan Food Service Equipment Show 2017

Last week I visited the Japan Food Service Equipment Show in Tokyo which is Japan’s largest exhibition for the hospitality, food service and catering industries. Whilst there was a lot of globally familiar appliances and beverage dispensing systems there, much of what was on show had a very Japanese feel to it. And that was namely […]

Design Vision Guaranteed

20:20 design vision guaranteed!

It’s interesting to see how design as a discipline has been evolving over the last decade and a bit. 16 years ago, when I started my design engineering course at Delft University of Technology as a bespectacled youngster, there was a strong emphasis on designing physical products for mass manufacturing. During my time at the […]

The importance of an eye for detail in designing consumer experiences

I went to my local hairdresser lately – out of necessity; I rarely go out of my own ‘free will’. I generally do not find it relaxing having to sit in a chair for 30-45 min with someone very close that I’m sort of expected to have small talk with. When I was sitting down […]

A few months ago I attended the Boston Startup Expo & Tech Job Fair on behalf of CC aiming not only to become more involved in the community, but also to discover intriguing and talented individuals who would thrive at CC.  I had one conversation in particular with a woman two-years-removed from MIT, about what […]
