Bea Karol Burks

Director of Design and Innovation

Bea runs Design and innovation at Good Things Foundation, testing new solutions to entrenched social problems with our network of hyperlocal community organisations. She leads a team of service designers and researchers to build services that change lives and communities.

Despite Bea's belief in all things digital, one of her great loves is outdoor swimming. Never to neglect tech however, she can also often be found building custom key boards.

Bea says... "The democratisation of information is a HUGE deal for everyone across the world, but we're only just starting to understand the true power of the internet. Machine learning, the internet of things, augmented reality will change the web and the world as we know it. Good Things Foundation's aims speak to the egalitarian principles behind the web - a world where everyone benefits from an open, collaborative web for everyone."
