Workshops and programming

We equip human beings with the skills they need to survive and thrive in a volatile world. We believe that these skills are as much about communication, collaboration and creative thinking as they are about technology. 

We use the skills and contacts we built up as journalists to find the latest trends and industry developments, and the best speakers and tutors currently leading their field. We can tailor our offering for your business – whether that’s bespoke content, remote delivery alongside face-to-face workshops, or white label programming for your own events. 

Recent projects

VEON editorial conference

We created and hosted a two-day internal conference for telecommunications giant, VEON. The practical, inspirational and ambitious event brought together content teams from the company’s 12 different territories for the first time, and provided a toolkit of content creation and curation techniques.

Clever Boxer provided practical guidance and a calming influence throughout, I would not hesitate to work with them again!

Data visualisation training

We’ve run hundreds of workshops on communicating data effectively through infographics and other visualisations – for clients including the Home Office, the Department of Transport, Kings College London, and General Assembly.

We live in a world of data and the challenge is never finding numbers, it is finding a way for them to make sense. The Clever Boxer training made everything add up

Soho House Group programming

For the ever-expanding Soho House Group, events are a key part of the value provided to members. We first started programming lunchtime and evening talks and workshops for them in 2008, and have been working with them ever since. 

Clever Boxer has been nothing short of essential to creating a buzzing community of new companies and creative start ups here at Shoreditch House
