Meet the Latest Speaker to Join Our Team!

By Team TOK


Say hello to Cameron who has joined our team of superhero speakers! 


What is your favourite film and why?

This has to be a dead tie between Memento by Christopher Nolan and the first Avengers film. Memento is such a clever psychological thriller with such an interesting type of cinematography to put the audience in the main characters shoes perfectly that you feel totally immersed in it. And the Avengers is just awesome. And I’m a huge superhero nerd who grew up reading loads of comics and watching loads of superhero cartoons.


Who or what inspires you?

I’m genuinely really inspired by the people around me. Seeing my friends and family doing well in what they enjoy inspires me to do better. Seeing other people being happy and doing well in general makes me enjoy myself more!


What is the best advice you have ever received?

The best advice I’ve ever received has to be to just do your own thing and not to worry about what other people think. I think there’s been so many times in my life where there’s been something I wanted to do but was too worried about embarrassing myself or having other people judge me on it and as a result, I’ve just left it. Everything from doing a show at the Edinburgh Fringe all the way to talking to a pretty girl in a bar! Just take a breath, count to 3 and just do it!


If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

I think time travel would be pretty awesome. Being able to go back in time and see all of history as it happens as well as being able to see what happens in the future would be mind-blowing. Plus you’d get to experience flying cars and hoverboards. Just don’t steal any sports almanacs!


What are you enjoying most about working at Tree of Knowledge so far?

Absolutely everything! Everybody is so nice, the atmosphere in the team is electric and I’ve genuinely woken up every single day excited to go to work. Learning all new content for the courses is super interesting, too.


Which of the seven dwarves is most like you?

Sleepy. My bed is my second favourite place on the planet only beaten narrowly by being on stage. On that note, my great gran once gave me a fantastic piece of advice that has transformed the way I think of bed forever. She once told me “You should always spend money on your bed and your shoes. Cause if you’re not in one, you’re in the other!”. Since then my bed is the comfiest on the planet with mattress toppers, pillows, you name it.


What’s your favourite quote?

I love a lot of the philosopher and thinker Alan Watts’ thinking and he has a bunch of quotes that I could give here but my favourite has to be:

“This is the real secret of life—to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play” — Alan Watts
