Shed is an expert in ideas and often shares his three techniques which he uses to unlock his own creativity, as well as help anyone make their ideas happen. Shed believes that “when an idea pops into your head, it can send you on amazing adventures – if you follow the idea through.” He fervently believes in ‘failing upwards’ by trying to launch numerous ideas and learning from the amazing experiences they bring which has formed the basis of his books, unique humorous shows and corporate speeches on creativity and innovation.
As well as a successful past career in television production, Shed has forged a highly innovative merchandising empire – creating conceptual gifts, executive toys, best-selling adult sweets, books, greetings cards, and even his own currency. To date, Shed has sold over one million novelty gifts worldwide and has won ‘Gift Of The Year’ twice. Shed’s ability to create new ideas, coupled with his skill to make them happen, mean that his range and rate of success is vast – and thus his performances are wonderfully motivational and brilliantly entertaining. Shed has performed his visual and inspirational motivational speeches for both entrepreneurs and non-business people alike.
Shed’s degree in Experimental Psychology at Balliol College, Oxford, plus his two years working in Disney World allowed Shed to launch TV production and programs including ‘The Big Breakfast’ and ‘Big Brother.’ From this experience, Shed forged a highly innovative merchandising empire that allows him to demonstrate the fact that ideas are cheap, but execution can be profitably rewarding exercises that launch a brand new business or career.
