Here’s the thing…we’re all guilty of going to industry events, feeding off ‘thought leaders’ and planning to share all the wise and wonderful things we’ve learnt with anyone who will listen.
Alas, back in the office, priorities come a knockin’ and those ambitions to innovate the world disappear as quick as you can say “Wunderlist”.
But what about the insights? The new nuggets of knowledge that could impact what we do, who we are, and how we operate!
Cue this Friday’s Go and Tell session…
First up, we’ll hear from Holly Allison – our analytics-enthusiast who attended Newcastle’s very first MeasureCamp at Campus North last Saturday (21 May). Holly represented Orange Bus as a sponsor and she’ll be giving us a quick-fire lowdown on the sessions; sharing key-takeouts for Team OB.
TechUK Public Sector 2030
Telling all from the TechUK conference (10 May), HQ’s resident hummer Hayley Wright will then reveal the plans behind UK Government’s vision to build a digital infrastructure by 2030 – looking to data-sharing, agile software development and iterative design. Check out relating Insight piece Rebuilding the UK’s Digital Infrastructure for 2030.
Digital Union Meet-ups
Rounding up the talks, I’ll promote our new position on the Digital Union steering group by recapping cross-company initiatives to re-brand the North East – think more creative hub than boozie clubs; while encouraging Team OB to get more social about the NE’s creative credentials.
Bank Holiday ball games…
Findings so far: when practiced with Newcastle’s Digital Skills Academy, the students (av. age 17, technical ability – basic) outperformed a cross-section of Team OB (av. age 30, technical ability – advanced) six-fold in points. Goals!
