Learn more about Gavin Strange

In 2016, after speaking at the prestigious Do Lectures, he wrote the book ‘Do Fly’, a motivational mantra published by The Do Book Co & Chronicle Books. He co-founded the contemporary design store ‘STRANGE’ with his wife Jane and even appears in CBBC’s art-themed TV show ‘Art Ninja’. Gavin is a keynote speaker and has been fortunate enough to speak around the world, from Mexico to Manchester, the Middle East to Munich.

Talk: Making the work is the easy part …
Making the work is the easy part, finding the time, however, is the difficult bit. In his talks and his book, Gavin shares his stories and methods behind getting the most out of those 24 pesky hours, conveyed via the medium of bright colours and animated GIFs. He prides himself on being a ‘realistic idealist’ or ‘idealistic realist’ – striking the balance between uncurbed enthusiasm and pragmatic process. Floaty sentiments aside, his talks are about finding the energy and making the time to create things that matter. That’s something Gav believes applies to everyone - from a GSCE to CEO!
