Product Designer inspires our students

Posted on 20th March 2014

Product Designer and ex CGS student Simon Lyons spent  a day in school  last week updating students and staff on his progress since completing his degree last year.  Simon delivered a whole school assembly on the theme of ‘Against the Tide’ sharing details of his decision to set up his own design company rather than seek employment on graduation and explained some of the difficulties he’s had getting his first product to market.  Simon spent the rest of the day talking and working with students during their Design & Technology lessons.

Simon’s first product the ‘Geco Hub’ becomes available through the crowd funding site ‘Kickstarter’ later today and we all wish Simon well with this enterprising and exciting challenge.
