Inventor Trevor Baylis OBE is most famous for the wind up radio but also swam for Great Britain, worked as a stunt man, a Physical Education Instructor for the Army, and was the proprietor of his own swimming pool company. Inspired by a television programme on AIDS in Africa he invented the Clockwork Radio, and in 1997 he was awarded an OBE for services to Africa.
Always concerned about the neglect of inventors, inventions and intellectual property, he set up Trevor Baylis Brands to help inventors get their products to market. This Wednesday at Art Wednesday’s event, Nice To Meet You, Baylis will be talking about his career.
Held at Dalston Roof Park, Nice To Meet You invites distinguished guests to give talks in an evening of conversation, debate and entertainment with leaders and innovators from the worlds of art, business, science, technology, music, film, fashion and many more.
Claire de Rouen Books will be curating a special library for the event of inspirational and creative material.
