GORDON REID: Weird World Cup


Creative Director Gordon Reid's brutally honest talks have been described as half comedy and half inspiration. His anecdotes include how he talked his way into becoming lead designer and art director for all of the Visa’s Rio Olympics advertising, how he managed to get into the national press and connect people all over the world through beer mats (seriously) and many more.

At The Good Life Experience Gordon will present 'It's Coming Home', the story of how a man far too lazy to run a marathon managed to raise thousands of pounds for charity over the World Cup 

Gordon talks you through the many highs and indeed lows of how his side hustle 'Weird World Cup' beermat project went from an idea in a pub to selling thousands of packs all around the world, international press and making thousands of pounds for charity... And none for himself. There will be a lot of tips on how to really persevere and make your ideas a success and a lot of learnings from his mistakes. There may (almost definitely will) be swearing, pictures of cats and a lot of advice on running a business.

Heckling is encouraged.
