We caught up with Anthony Quinn recently and had a fascinating conversation.

For anyone who has seen Anthony speak at design, conferences will know what a strong design thinker he is. We chat about how he got into design, how motivations and also took questions relating to the topics of career challenges from people working in the industry, and also how to increase your influence in an organisation.
