Insights on invention from Trevor Bayliss
A few years ago on my PGCE year we attended some sort of conference. Most of the content has long since disappeared from my memory, but the keynote address was given by Trevor Bayliss, inventor, some time star of The Big Breakfast (remember his Inventor’s Corner slot?) and a hugely entertaining and engaging speaker. He is passionate about the need to protect ideas, given his own experiences with the wind-up radio. So, covering protection of business ideas with my Lower 6th Business Studies class I found this gem of a video interview from the superb internet resource Smarta.com
Trevor is very honest about his own experiences and naivety in the past, and is eager to ensure others learn the lessons. He gives his own practical experiences of filing patents and speaks about how his venture ‘Bayliss Brands’ intends to help the next generation of inventors.
Well worth watching - you understand me?
