Welcome! The School of Design launched officially on 1 January, 2021 (after a year-long beta throughout 2020). My mission is to put world-class design × business × life education into the hands of as many people as possible, enabling members to accelerate their lives.

The School of Design is a community for design-focused entrepreneurs who are designing and building the businesses of tomorrow.

I picked the words ‘design-focused entrepreneurs’ carefully, because the community isn’t just for designers. It’s for anyone who:

Our first course for 2023 – Design Your Future – will kick off in the second half of the year.

If you’d like to have a one-to-one discussion to explore how The School of Design can help you, email me – [email protected] – and we can fix a time.

We'll kick off our July topic: Reading and Writing. Join us in the community as a member and accelerate your learning in 2023.

A day with Chris is like a semester in university, he provides an abundance of knowledge and inspiration. I wouldn’t have achieved what I have without his support and the accountability he provides. —Stephen, Belfast

Chris’s ’secret sauce’ is that he’s been through everything he teaches. Add in his strong focus on holding individuals accountable, and he’ll help accelerate you in ways you won't believe. —Al, Brighton

What I teach…

I’m teaching the next generation of design × business disruptors, giving them the design, business and thinking skills they need to create the businesses of the future. We’re a small, but highly motivated community.
