Designer; technologist and trouble-making problem solver
Kevin Mitchell, with a background in in engineering, management, communications and technology design, member of the UCS Centre for Design Innovation (CDI). Since moving into IT 20 years ago, he has worked for a diverse range of organisations (government, media, financial, technology and telecommunications) across the globe roles.
Specialised in delivering infrastructure and communications design, he is a Chartered IT Professional, Fellow of the British Computer Society (FBCS CITP) and holds both Professional Certificate and Diploma in Management from the Open University Business School. He recently received a Postgraduate Certificate in Design Context and Practice from UCS.
Keenly interested in how we communicate, or more often fail to, Kevin hopes to explore how current perceptions of design and the use of new media affect the role of the designer especially in today’s distributed “always connected” environment which commonly crosses global cultural and generational boundaries. His research focus is within the areas of digital literacy, creativity, idea generation, distributed collaboration and engagement with stakeholders: of all ages.
Journalist and trend forecaster James Wallman explains why more and more of us are suffering from “stuffocation” – where instead of feeling enriched by the things we own, we are stifled and overwhelmed by them.
Professor Moshe Szyf’s trailblazing research in epigenetics highlights the impact that external factors and the social environment can have on gene expression. In this special RSA NSPCC event, he considers how we deploy the latest scientific thinking to some of today's toughest challenges.
Leading international development consultant and researcher Ben Ramalingam and NESTA chief executive Geoff Mulgan discuss how insights from the cutting edge of science can help make foreign aid more appropriate, innovative, and catalytic.
