I am chairman of the Arup Design Council and am passionate about reinforcing and promoting Arup’s world-class creative and design ability inside and outside the firm.

At the Sorrell Foundation, I work with young people to help them discover and use their creativity, and as the originator and chairman of the London Design Festival I help develop the world’s leading annual festival of design.

I am involved in a variety of other activities, including my role as a UK Business Ambassador, appointed by the Prime Minister to champion the UK’s Creative Industries overseas.
