Event Details

VR and AR are forecast to add £62.5 billion to the UK economy by 2020 according to new report by PWC All All around us we are now seeing examples of where both VR and AR can reshape existing ways of doing things- buying a new home, educating children, interacting with a doctor or watching a concert with VR and the recent launches of Apple's AR Kit and Google's ARC Core proves the tech giants continued investment in Augmented Reality applications. Some commentators now believe in the next 18 months that AR has a higher potential for growth than its more higher profile VR cousin. What is certain is that both VR and AR advances and price points decline to enable these immersive technologies to offer a future potential to unleash a multi-billion industry and possibly be as game-changing as the advent of the PC and mobile phone.

“I am going home inspired, moved and energised. Your masterclass training hit so many spots for me. Apart from being fascinating on a personal level, it could not have been more relevant professionally. And having your trainer's industry experience and insight was hugely valuable. I look forward to receiving Jonathan's links and resources so I can properly process the wealth of information we covered today. The experiential parts of the workshop will stay with me for a long, long time. Your communication leading up to the event was first class. And the venues were ideal. Thank you” VR Consultant Language Trainer, Bangor College, Wales ( Sept 2018)

”As a producer for a production agency, I found this course incredibly useful. I was specifically looking for a workshop that was really practical and would expand my knowledge of the production process, trends and how best to use VR. This course certainly delivered on these requirements and has really inspired me to go and learn more about this space.” Client Production Manager, Ad Agency

”We really enjoyed the session.  The trainer clearly had a huge wealth of knowledge of the VR industry and was able to cover a lot of the positive aspects and pitfalls of VR.  It was an interesting journey through the history of VR and also the different types of virtual media that existed. In many respects, this has given us more confidence in identifying the type of virtual media that would benefit a training solution we could offer in our area of business. We’re greatly appreciative to the trainer for bringing some clarification to this from the huge range of VR choices. We made many notes of websites and facts concerning AR, VR and mixed reality that were really useful. It was also great that he also had an understanding of the different range of tools that we could use to get started on VR” Head of training, The Police

"Many thanks for an excellent and thorough course.  It was perfectly pitched for my level of understanding and full of very useful information to take away. many thanks" Director of British Board of Film Classification (June 2019)
