At last year’s event, Burberry’s Christopher Bailey became the first fashion designer to give the Annual Innovation Lecture. When asked who he would recommend as the guest speaker for 2012, he surprised everyone by putting forward Will.i.am, frontman for the Black Eyed Peas and currently on the BBC’s the Voice saying, “He’s a remarkable guy. Someone who is part of making the world a much smaller, more exciting, more fun and more wonderful place to be.”
And sure enough, tonight, Will.i.am braves the crowd at the Royal Geographical Society, to give his views on what makes a game-changing innovator.
Not surprisingly there isn’t a spare seat in the house!
