Most of us are conscious of the growing list of 21st century challenges we face as people. As a designer/filmmaker/entrepreneur, Guy Ryan is excited about our opportunity to tackle those challenges through creative thinking and social innovation. This keynote is a taste of what Guy’s been up too since jumping the graduate fence . . .

Under the newly established charity – the Inspiring Stories Trust, Guy is heading a nationwide youth-focused project that aims to spark a series of inspirational short film productions by connecting up young filmmakers with young people making a difference in their communities.
