What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our day event will provide Leicester’s Creative Digital Businesses with real world insights from acclaimed speakers and local digital leaders, sharing new ideas and pragmatic advice. Covering a breadth of topics ranging from user experience design and digital product development to tech startup strategy and innovation funding. Fostering new ideas and methodologies, cross-collaboration, mentorship, professional development, and amazing networking opportunities. We’ve built a strong following over the last 2 years. With all of our quarterly events selling out in advance. On this basis alone, we knew there was the demand for a bigger event. We believe that holding a day event is a great idea in order to unite Leicester’s digital businesses and create a community where knowledge is shared and opportunities arise. Our day event will be a part of Design Season 2 which celebrates the huge breadth and talent that exists across Leicester’s Creative Industries.
