I am overjoyed today to tell you all that I will be attending the Thinking Digital Conference 2015, at Sage Gateshead 19th-21st May, as part of the Sage One Street Team of bloggers. #TDC15 is an annual conference in the North East to discuss how technology is shaping the future, they have great speakers from places such as Pixar, IBM, Microsoft, BBC Click, CERN and many more, so imagine my surprise when this little lifestyle blogger was chosen to attend!
I have never attended anything as big as this, so I want to get everything I can out of it. I have to give a massive hand to the conference organisers for the amount of female speakers there are, its so inspiring as a woman starting out or dipping her toe into the digital world to see so many incredible ladies being acknowledged for their achievements. Having checked out the line up of speakers there are some that I'm especially excited to see.
LJ Rich from BBC Click will be there. As a BBC News channel nerd, I always make sure I catch the full length show as well as stalk the Twitter feed, so I'm a bit of a fangirl of LJ. Living with Synesthesia, LJ makes her life about music and applies it to all things tech.
Holly Lloyd is a Digital Lumiere at Pixar, she worked on greats such as Brave, Monsters Inc and my personal favourite Finding Nemo! Being a marketing girl, I'm really interested in everything Holly does Disney and Pixar.
Tara Shears is part of the amazing team at CERN working on the Large Hadron Collider. She is an amazing science communicator, something a bit different to everything else at the conference. Space is something that I love finding out more about, so I'm really looking forward to this.
I'd like to thank Sage One for giving me this amazing opportunity to be part of the Sage One Street Team, find out more here.
