I think it’s fair to say that Mike Press is a big personality and a well known figure in the Dundee Creative community. He runs service design consultancy Open Change with Hazel White. He decided to make the jump back into consultancy after a 25 year stint in education.
This episode is a whistle stop tour of Mike’s amazing varied career from selling insurance to computer programming to being a service designer before it even existed.
I think that one of the core themes of Mike’s career is social activism and empowering others to make a difference. He is a brilliant story teller and motivator and I took a lot from this chat. We touch on so many different issues including his fresh perspective on the future of education and what he wants to see in the future of Dundee.
