Ep#21 - Dino Burbidge

How and why to learn everything

Dino Burbidge is the Head of #Innovation at SKY... among many other things.

Our conversation explores Dino's path to where (and who) he is, starting as a child who simply had to learn everything and never specialise, to being prepared for armageddon, to how (and why) children today should do the same to pay big dividends in adulthood.

Chosen quotes:

"If you are the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room" -- Unknown


"Yes" --Jim Carrey
