Actionable Futurist and former IBM global managing partner, Andrew Grill is a sought-after speaker and trusted board-level technology advisor.

As a ‘100 per cent digital’ evangelist, Andrew believes that, “to get digital, you need to be digital”, and his engaging keynote talks provide actionable insights on how to achieve corporate goals on a global and long-lasting scale.

We're delighted to also welcome Timandra Harkness. Timandra writes and presents BBC Radio 4 documentaries, including Divided Nation and Five Knots, and series FutureProofing and Steel manning. She makes regular radio and TV appearances to discuss current affairs, especially issues around technology, including Newsnight, Question Time,  Any Questions, Politics Live and Free Thinking. Her first book, Big Data: does size matter? was published by Bloomsbury Sigma in 2016 (updated paperback edition 2017).
