My guest today is Roy Sharples, the Founder and CEO of Unknown Origins whose mission is to build a better future by “saving the world from unoriginality by unleashing the power of creativity”.
When you start a company with as bold and inspiring a mission as that you must have strong views and a real belief in them. Roy shares a lot of those views and thoughts during our conversation and whilst I don’t necessarily agree with everything, he says to his immense credit he’s never anything less than thought provoking.
I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and got real insight and inspiration from it. I hope the same will be true for you.
If you want to dig deeper into Roy’s thinking, then last year he published a book which is the title of the episode ‘Creativity Without Frontiers’. It’s available here:
but as we discuss in the episode, visiting your local independent bookshop might be preferable 😊

· 80’s What Difference Does It Make? The Smiths
· 90’s Fade Into You Mazzy Star
· 00’s Comptine d’un autre été, l’apres-midi Yann Tiersen
