Manchester, United Kingdom
Imran Hakim (creator of iTeddy and serial entrepreneur)
Martin Eriksson (Product Director, Huddle)
Hal Sandbach (Senior Designer at Sony Computer Entertainment)
The first in the 'Transmissions' series of inspiring and entertaining evening shows, exploring innovation in the digital industry.
Through an interactive format that fuses keynotes, case-studies, hypothetical discussions and hands-on tech demos, Transmission 1 will explore how innovation is fostered and managed in the digital industries, through the eyes of three diverse yet successful organisations - iTeddy, Huddle and Sony.
The session will also look ahead at the opportunities and challenges in digital innovation.
In addition, the Madlab team will be providing live interactive demos of quirky technology to trigger some digital sparks over drinks and nibbles!
All-comers from across the digital industries are welcome - company leaders, coders, creatives, managers and freelancers alike.
Look out for future Transmissions, running in November, January, February & March
