Back to School

I spent most of Wednesday helping out at Liverpool's Cardinal Heenan School for an Enterprise Day.

Apart from having great fun and a school dinner, I worked with the students on a proper roll your sleeves-up day of taking a product from idea through to pitching a concept.

I think my quote wraps-up the day nicely:

"First things first; taking a product from idea through to concept is more than difficult. Add to that a time constraint of a school day, product pitches, adverting campaigns and financial planning and we're really talking.

That, apparently, was not enough to faze the boys from Cardinal Heenan. I think I speak for all of the panelists when I say we were left amazed and open-mouthed by the quality of their product concepts, marketing ideas, financial planning, cultural awareness and above all, their confident and engaging product pitches."

If I had a hat, I'd take it off a thousand times for those boys.

Introducing Demo

Together with Matt Richards, I'm organising an event in Liverpool on June 20th 2013.

With the hope of bringing together those working on tech products and ideas, Demo asks a simple question; what are you working on?

Hosted at DoES Liverpool, the event will be made up of a maximum of 6 demos with a short midway interval.

Loosely Held...

As far as demoing is concerned, we welcome those at varying stages of development. From early ideas, right through to well established products. Extracted from the Demo FAQs:

A demo is a short, 5 minute talk about a product or idea. That might include a loosely-held concept, a new feature, a simple website or a game-changing internet of things product.

To make the sessions as constructive as possible, we're encouraging a setting whereby the listeners have as much responsibility as the speakers. Feedback placards will be given to attendees with the view of encouraging a lively Q & A session after each demo.

From the handful of events I've attended, it would appear that there's some pretty interesting stuff going on in Liverpool. Let's hope Demo goes some way in unearthing and applauding that.
