Drew Smith

Drew's passion is for identifying the major shifts in technology, business and culture and sharing what he learns with the world at large.

Rising Minds, which he co-founded with Jean-Robert, is not his first rodeo: he established and ran the London chapter of Creative Mornings, too. 

Although he started out as a car designer, his love of ethnographic research and people-centred design has lead to a career helping companies develop empathy, services and products for their customers.

He’s helped create the bank of the future, a taxi service for kids, in-flight entertainment that starts before you even get on the plane and a radical new approach to selling mobile phones.
