Businesses are becoming more personal, humanised & convenient with fewer physical interactions than virtual ones. This means we need to work harder to understand our audience and engage with them across multiple channels.
"SparkUp: Powering your Product” promises to engage, educate and inspire everyone in the audience.
The event we will be discussing the top opportunities and challenges as a marketer, product manager and business founder, when it comes to your product proposition, and how to better understand humans.
We have selected three experts on the panel that will cover a series of topics including neurology, psychology and growth hacking that will fuel each attendee with insights and tips to succeed when attracting and influencing humans.
As usual Ignyte always injects a fresh mentality into the room and offers unique skills, here are some of the panelists:
Peter Trainor, Behavioural designer, accidental polymath and author
Pete talks all over the world on creative & social technologies & the physiological & psychological effects on their audiences. He regularly appears in the press as an analyst on digital media, creative industries, emergent technologies, and tech markets. He also sits on the executive committee of BIMA and the board at the BSI shaping the guidelines for the Internet of Things & Connected Lives.
Pete has a very simple mantra: "Don't do things better, do better things."
Timothy Armoo, CEO of Fanbytes
As one of the youngest entrepreneurs in the UK, starting his first business at just 14, Timothy has built up Fanbytes to become the largest video influencer platform in the UK. They help brands including GoPro and Disney to engage with millennials. Forbes describes them as "the millennials redefining how brands market to other millennials".
Timothy will be joining the SparkUp panel to share his 'no bullshit guide' to redefining the market, attracting millennials and measuring influencer campaigns. His insights will offer any brand in the audience powerful tips to start using straight away.
Jessica Riches, Growth Hacker and community management specialist
Jessica was named PR Week's 30 under 30 and has been featured numerous times in top newspapers with her opinions and expertise in digital marketing and community management. Jessica even persuaded Hugh Grant to get social, so we know her insights will captivate the audience.
