Workshops and programming
We equip human beings with the skills they need to survive and thrive in a volatile world. We believe that these skills are as much about communication, collaboration and creative thinking as they are about technology.
We use the skills and contacts we built up as journalists to find the latest trends and industry developments, and the best speakers and tutors currently leading their field. We can tailor our offering for your business – whether that’s bespoke content, remote delivery alongside face-to-face workshops, or white label programming for your own events.
VEON editorial conference
We created and hosted a two-day internal conference for telecommunications giant, VEON. The practical, inspirational and ambitious event brought together content teams from the company’s 12 different territories for the first time, and provided a toolkit of content creation and curation techniques.
Data visualisation training
We’ve run hundreds of workshops on communicating data effectively through infographics and other visualisations – for clients including the Home Office, the Department of Transport, Kings College London, and General Assembly.
Soho House Group programming
For the ever-expanding Soho House Group, events are a key part of the value provided to members. We first started programming lunchtime and evening talks and workshops for them in 2008, and have been working with them ever since.
Our in-depth one-day workshops are open to everyone, and run regularly at central London locations
