bespoken Bulletin


engaging people driving innovation

Happy Friday everyone,

Did somebody say bespoken? Alright then, read on.
This week’s bulletin focuses on designs and designers. As one bespoken member is fond of saying “finding a solution has to start with understanding the problem”. Sounds obvious but too often inventors get carried away with their own creativity and lose sight of the real goal - helping people live better.

I tell you who doesn’t have that problem…
Remap! That’s who. Wait, you don’t know Remap??? Well gather round and I shall tell you a tale of engineers who volunteer their time to work closely with people who have disabilities and create unique solutions. Find out more about this wonderful charity here...
Great examples of Remap’s amazing volunteers at work can be found on bespoken but this week the charity’s CEO was posting to reveal the winner of their annual awards which recognise the best of the best!
And one of the most picturesque towns in Scotland, a North Berwick charity has been trialling a new and radically different sort of access to the beach for wheelchair users. No, you haven’t seen this before...

Have a great weekend everyone,
