A big 'Thank You!' to everybody who made our first conference such a success. We will have a proper and more formal write up with all the respective mentions once we will have fully digested the impact of this event.
What three days it has been! We only just closed the venue doors behind us and I - that is Rika - feel that a rather personal account, taken freshly right after the event, might reflect, and preserve, the atmosphere for a bit longer. And a great atmosphere it was thanks to all your engagement and contributions.
We had the most amazing keynote speakers and panelists spurring on fantastic discussions. We had such a strong feedback through our breakout sessions, encouraged through the variety of people of different professions. I have to admit that throughout the planning stage there was a little niggling feeling that this might be a risky approach: Would we be able to do justice to all of you, give all of you a voice, and an opportunity to feed back and to make a point? What a relief that all the feedback we reviewed so far tells us that this was one of the best features of the conference. We are well chuffed!
So, we will have a couple of slower days now, during which we will tidy up our boxes and clear our desks and then we will go straight back at it again.
Our next conference will be 13th-15th June 2017 and be called the 'Summer Conference on Converged Customer Experience'. Given the nature of Tommy Flowers Institute it will be an invite only conference, but do get in touch if you wish to learn more.
