This week I attended Thinking Digital, in it’s new venue of Manchester at ‘Home’. As a Thinking Digital newbie I didn’t know what to expect. I had seen some of the speakers from the Gateshead event in May via their catch up livestream and had high expectations, and boy were they met.
The day got off to an energetic start with Eddie Obeng who led with a theme that was prevalent throughout many of the talks – we, as humans are getting lost in the process, not engaging fully, not taking the time to connect.
I don’t really want to summarise the talks, as I don’t feel I can do them justice, they need to be listened to, in full. Luckily, I was at the event as a result of my recent work with Reframed, making sure everything was going to plan with the livestream. And so, I have this awesome list of links for each speaker, he links take you to the exact point of their talk. I know, I’m amazing, right?
