As part of Leeds Digital Festival, ODI Leeds is playing host to a variety of events.
Innovation, Innovation, Innovation is a joint event brought to you by Bloom Agency & Crowdicity and hosted by ODI Leeds.
This will be an informal style session at the unique ODI Leeds Venue, with a chance to hear about and discuss with leading practitioners how they are doing Innovation and how it will affect us all.
Join us for talks and a Q&A with three of the most experienced people in the innovation world.
Rob Wilmot was one of the three founding executives of Freeserve, a multi-billion pound company that changed the way we accessed the web in the UK. Now founder and CEO of Crowdicity, Rob will be speaking about how governments around the world are utilising open innovation to bring citizens into the public policy creation process: including how Crowdicity was used by the Mayor of Rio de Janeiro to crowdsource the Olympic Legacy.
Alex Craven was the founder and long-term CEO of Bloom, one of Leeds' most successful marketing agencies with offices in the UK and Australia, which was acquired by Jaywing in 2016. Now spearheading Jaywing's data and intelligence arm, Alex will discuss how innovative data methods can change the way companies develop products and services and interact more successfully with consumers.
Paul Connell is the founder and CEO of ODI Leeds, one of just two pioneer ODI nodes worldwide. Paul will discuss the importance of open culture, open data and how ODI Leeds has driven innovation for Yorkshire & beyond.
