Great night at Glug, The Tech Off! #glugoff

Jason Taylor Jason Taylor 29 September 2016

The concept of the night is to have two teams of opponents, some representing the tech heads and some the creatives. Each team have got 4 speakers and they are given 5 minutes each to share their best insights, thoughts and ideas on Creative Technology. This is sometimes to an old school hip hop break and in the style of an MC but sadly often not!

It sounds like a lot of fun and potentially foolish, however the concepts discussed and content of all the speaker’s ideas do give you a very real insight into the world and minds of the talented individuals we all enjoy meeting and working with.

Kevin Palmer (Director @ Kin Design) kicked off the event as the winner of the previous event and showed great musicality with his own take on Gloria Gaynor’s, I will survive.

Nadya Powell (MD @ Sunshine Agency) was very impactful with her take on turning our imperfections into positive life skills.

But Jeremy Waite (Evangelist @ IBM) stole the night with his romantic and heartwarming tale of the art of creative writing.

In amongst this Tom and myself met some great creative and digital talent. Will definitely be doing it again next time around.
