NUX; Tech for Good; and Ladies that UX: Live panel and Christmas party
14/12/2017 | Federation House, Federation St, M4 2AH
We're very excited to sponsor this awesome event, join the expert panel (...and special guests!) as they review the year in pro-social and ethical tech. On top of that, the whole event will be recorded as part of the Tech for Good podcast!
As if that wasn't enticing enough, there will be plenty of booze and good times afterwards at the NUX and Tech for Good Christmas party!
Who is on the panel?
Ben White - Head of delivery at the best digital agency in the UK/world. Worked in charity, government, and theme restaurants, but always somehow ends up messing about with computers.
Greg Ashton - Researcher, strategist, geek and habitual complainer. After years of helping sell stuff that people don't need he's turned his gifts to good. Without him we'd have nothing to talk about on the show.
