About this Event

In association with Penguin Business and Campaign, Zone is delighted to host breakfast with Damian Bradfield, and we would like to invite you to join us at our offices in London to hear him discuss his new book, The Trust Manifesto – What You Need to Create a Better Internet.

From the moment we wake up and unlock our phones, we're producing data. We offer up our unique fingerprint to the online world, scan our route to work, listen to a guided meditation or favourite playlist, slide money around, share documents and update our social media accounts. We reach for our phones up to 200 times a day, not knowing which companies are storing, using, selling and manipulating our data.

But do we care? We're busy. We've got lives. We're pressed for time! There aren't enough hours in the day to read the terms and conditions. Or, maybe we're happy to trade our personal data for convenient services and to make our lives easier?

Big data is the phenomenon of our age, but should we trust it without question?

This is the trust dilemma.

In 2009, Damian Bradfield founded WeTransfer, the largest file-sharing platform in the world with 50 million global users shipping more than one billion files of data a month. His unique experience of the big data economy has led him to question if there is another way to build the internet, one that is fairer and safer for everyone and, in The Trust Manifesto, he lays out this vision.

Don’t miss your opportunity to hear Damian Bradfield discuss his new book, available from Penguin Business, and bag yourself a free copy!

The event will be facilitated by Omar Oakes, global technology editor at Campaign.

Damian Bradfield is the President and co-founder of WeTransfer, a company that now has over 50 million global users. He is also the co-founder of Present Plus, a design and experience-driven venture studio. Named ‘one of the most influential voices in tech today’ by Forbes magazine, Damian speaks to audiences globally on the topics of innovation, education and the arts. His work has appeared in Fast Company, the Financial Times and Business Insider amongst others.
