Katherine Scrimgeour – Thinking differently

Katherine Scrimgeour Planet Beyond Episode


14 Dec 2023

Earlier this year, Katherine Scrimgeour posted on LinkedIn about her own experiences of dealing with dyslexia. It’s a condition that can undermine confidence at work, but that doesn’t mean it should hold anyone back.

It struck a chord with Planet Beyond host Jon Baston-Pitt, who also experiences dyslexia. In this short, Jon and Katherine talk about their experiences, and about the importance of speaking up and asking for help.

And, while dyslexia and other atypical ways of thinking are now increasingly acknowledged, we each have brains that work differently from anyone else’s. Katherine and Jon talk about how we can each find our own ways of working, and be role models for young people as they find their own way in the world.
