Over the past year, the Geovation team has organised and hosted several successful startup and geo-based talks, workshops and meetups – both at the Geovation Hub and nationally. From our GeoTech Masterclass technical workshops; to informal knowledge-sharing ‘Meetups’, these popular free sessions aim to stimulate creative thinking and innovation, through the use of Geographic Information.
So, what’s in store for the coming weeks ahead?
Taking Agile beyond IT (meetup): 18 May, 6.30–8.30 pm
Next Wednesday evening, “Taking Agile beyond IT” will be the topic of the night for this meetup. We’ll talk through the myth behind Agile being strictly a useful working practice for IT based roles. A number of case studies from global financial institutions and other businesses will be covered, highlighting how to drive adoption of Agile working amongst businesses that have no involvement in IT or software delivery.
Branding for Startups (workshop): 25 May, 5.30–7 pm
We’ll be joined by leading creative consultants UNIFORM, who will be running a workshop around the importance of Branding for Startups. A great brand can be the difference between a great product and a commercially successful business and this free workshop will take a close look at best practice examples of branding from global powerhouses to up and coming mavericks.
Trend Café: Smart Cities – Health: 26 May, 4.30–6 pm
Finally, on 26 May, join us for the third episode in our three-part series of Trend Café events that have focused on Smart Cities. The series has taken a close look at three specific Smart City themes, these being: Mobility; Resilience and Health.
This session will cover how Health in cities can be improved through the use of data and technology. We’ll be hearing from TrendWatching, who will share worldwide innovation trends around Health. We’ll also be joined by guest speaker Elin Haf Davies, founder of aparito, a company that aims to use data and tech to disrupt the healthcare industry.
Finally, if you’re interested in receiving emails from Geovation – please let us know.
We hope to see you at the Hub soon!
