Our first event takes the theme of “Physical Digital Convergence”. With the lines between analogue and digital, computer and human being ever more blurred we’ve brought together some insprational speakers from within the space to help spark discussion and collaboration.

Nick Noble – Nick is Strategic Lead at IBM Watson Marketing, in support of Acoustic, the automation platform that uses AI to augment the user experience. A design thinking practitioner and ex-graduate of GSA. https://acoustic.co
Each ticket to the event will allow you to sign up to free follow on design thinking workshops to help investigate potential creative/tech projects under the umbrella of the theme.
