Speakers include:

Chris Bain, Player One Consulting
Building on his background of more than a decade of leadership at Xbox combined with cross-industry consulting experience at Accenture, Chris founded Player One Consulting in 2018 to deliver relevant & effective business solutions to the video gaming and consumer technology industries.

Orignally trained as a research scientist, Chris obtained his PhD in 1998. He decided to put his analytical skills to use in the business world, spending the next 6 years as a management consultant at Accenture. During this time he advised numerous blue-chip companies on their business strategy as well as running the practical projects that helped them achieve their goals.

Chris joined Microsoft in 2004 where he continued to focus on business transformation before being hired into the Xbox division as the EMEA Strategy & Insights Lead. As a dedicated gamer, this was a dream job for Chris and his success in this role eventually led to his becoming Xbox General Manager for Central & Eastern Europe – a region which he transformed into a global leader in revenue, market share & user engagement growth.

With Player One Consulting, Chris is taking the skills & experience from his long career and making it available to the wider gaming community. He is passionate about helping companies grow by giving the right support at the right time.
