"WE'RE NOT WHAT WE'VE BEEN TOLD IN THE PAST, AND EVEN MORE THAN WE'VE ALLOWED OURSELVES TO IMAGINE" - GREGG BRADEN

Hi, I’m Steven! I’m Chief Editor at Mindless Academy and I’m here to guide you in becoming the best digital storyteller you can possibly be. Each week I’ll be reviewing your articles to provide you with personalised feedback, helping you to develop your skills and get the most out of your experience. I want you to leave Mindless Academy feeling confident and strong in your abilities as a digital storyteller, ready for wherever your career takes you next. 

 

Alongside working at Mindless, I’m a Senior Copywriter at The Very Group, the UK’s largest integrated retail and financial services provider. Within this role, I’ve been lucky enough to navigate numerous career checkpoints and have the opportunity to work with some of the world's most well-known brands and most celebrated athletes. I've worked with the likes of Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and interviewed James Heskell (Rugby Union), Katarina Johnson-Thompson (Heptathlete) and Shannon and Cheriece Hylton (Sprinters).

"HARD WORK BEATS TALENT WHEN TALENT DOESN'T WORK HARD" - TIM NOTKE

Hi, I’m Georgia! I’m Programme Coordinator & Brand Designer at Mindless. From a design perspective, I capture the Mindless spirit and bring it to life through design. I create our logos, icons, illustrations, and anything else with the word "design" behind it. I even create storyboards of our monthly team social events so that we can keep memories of the Mindless journey we're on!

For all our interns, I'm your main point of contact. Throughout your internship you might have questions on your assignments, how to practice the mindset coaching techniques or what your editor feedback means. I'm here to help with all of those things and anything else you might need while you're with us!

 

As for my background, I graduated from the University of Lincoln with a BA in Media Production and now run a small business called Georgia May Design where I work as an illustrator and designer. Since joining the Mindless network, I've enjoyed several collaborations with other members of our global community. I get to work with some super cool companies, create commissions for lovely customers, sell prints and cards, design websites and create custom illustrations etc. I run my own Instagram page, which in a year has grown to a following of over 20,000.
