Kill the chaos with Mark McGuinness

Thank you to everyone who came to Mark McGuinness's talk on Monday. The SCR was packed with 100 students, alumni and staff, there were about 80 people watching online (several of them from the RCA Battersea campus, where we'd set up a live video stream) and an enthusiastic Twitter audience. Mark's talk was useful and thought provoking, and the SCR audience's contributions were great, including a Faber-Castell pencil addiction confession and a question about how to fit in Skype chats with friends in different timezones.

You can download the free e-book ('time management for creative people') that Mark mentioned in his talk right here. We'll be putting up a video of highlights from Mark's talk sometime next week, but in the meantime, here are some links he recommended:
