Best seat in the house

Me and Vix at mission control – the best seat in the house!

Last week, myself, Vix and Rich headed to Birmingham for Digifest. Having helped out at last year’s event on the digital dream wall, talking to customers and listening to their issues and needs first hand, my role this year was much more behind the scenes but vital especially for delegates following online.

With what I reckon was the best seat in the house, dubbed ‘mission control’, I kept an eye on the action from the main hall in between uploading presentation slides from each of the sessions as soon as they had taken place. No mean feat but worth it to enable anyone attending the event or joining in online being able to access all the content almost immediately!

It was a busy but fun couple of days with time to soak up the atmosphere, meet colleagues from across the organisation and check out the exciting technologies at the ‘fab lab.’ The amazing, fully immersive Samsung Gear VR headset took me on a rollercoaster ride and diving to the bottom of the ocean which, for a landlocked sea lover, rounded the event off perfectly 🙂
