SBTV Creator, Jamal Edwards, to host FREE talks to help inspire Brits to follow their passions
Fashion Designer Henry Holland will join the lineup hosted at WeWork locations across London.
Collaborative workspace WeWork is bringing together some of best six creative minds in a new season of free events designed to inspire the capital and its new wave of creative entrepreneurs.
Championing a differing theme each week, the month-long programme of ‘TED style’ talks will explore food, technology, fashion and media.
Iconic designer Henry Holland will be discussing the art of trend-spotting, alongside media mogul Jamal Edwards on forging a career in the digital media industry.
Pioneers of the London food scene are coming together to discuss how eating out has become the new rock’n’roll – with a line up including the craft beer success story Camden Town Brewery and street food sensation KERB.
Tickets are FREE!
Guests will be invited to join in the conversation over Mount Gay rum cocktails, snacks and music.
The series is in preparation for the Creator Awards in September – which will see WeWork give away $20 million in prize money to aspiring entrepreneurs around the world.

The way we consume music and entertainment is unrecognisable from 10 years ago. Appointment-to-view television has been replaced by the box set binge. The printed page is being overtaken by the dynamic tablet edition. The traditional music channel is now competing with self-uploads from handy cams. Some of the most influential and innovative members of London’s ever-evolving media scene will discuss what opportunities lie ahead for those who want to make a business out of entertainment.
WeWork Creator Awards
The Creator Awards is a new global, year-long initiative established by WeWork to recognise and reward the creators of the world- across all industries and all stages of growth. The awards will grant over $20 million to entrepreneurs, small businesses, growing companies, non-profits, artists and more. The financial grants are available to creators in three categories with the intention of offering an opportunity to as many different types of creators as possible.
- The Incubate Award: Individuals with an idea or a project that needs funding
- The Launch Award: Businesses or nonprofits that have launched but are still learning
- The Scale Award: Businesses or nonprofits with a record of success, ready for the next level
