Born out of the Northern Powerhouse and now in its 9th year, Thinking Digital travels south to London to showcase the world’s greatest thinkers and innovators to inspire, entertain and discuss the latest ideas and technologies.
On 15 and 16 March, Thinking Digital London brings together a community of digital creatives, technologists, and entrepreneurs from around the world, including Europe’s illustrious digerati Digital Economy leader Ed Vaizey MP, Tech City UK’s Eileen Burbidge, and Twitter’s Bruce Daisley.
Topics range from the future of digital technologies to digital culture to the UK’s national strategy to remain a digital leader and beyond.
Gerard Grech, CEO of Tech City UK commented, “The Digital Tech Economy is driving economic growth, productivity and job creation across the country. Last week¹s Tech Nation 2016 report highlighted the importance of digital entrepreneurs having access to local networks to share expertise and advice. Thinking Digital has been bringing together the community in the North and we welcome the impact it will have in the capital.”
On the first day a choice of three workshops will be running in various locations across London teaching Business Agility, Introduction to Podcasting and the Internet Marketing Toolbox.
On the second and main day guests will enjoy a full day of live talks from world-class speakers at the Ham Yard Hotel and an After Party at the Virgin Money Lounge all centred around Piccadilly Circus.
While known primarily as a Newcastle conference and described by author Matt Ridley as “TED on the Tyne”, Thinking Digital is enjoying a warm welcome for its new London conference.
Herb Kim, founder of Thinking Digital added, “We’ve spent 10 years building Thinking Digital in Newcastle. We launched in Manchester last year, and now London. The response has been incredible. We’re set for a fantastic two days.”
