Leeds Digital Lunch: Digital Storytelling

location The Adelphi Hotel | 12:30 PM-1:30 PM Friday 10 October 2014 (BST)

For October's Digital Lunch we will be in conversation with Gemma Critchley.

Gemma spent many years working in Leeds, before moving down to London, where she now works at BP.

Gemma will be telling the story of The Hub, BP's online video portal featuring over 1,500 clips, designed to help people learn at their point of need.

Just like Google has their 'zero moment of truth' for search, BP have spotted one for learning, that stuff is only good if it's useful and it's solving a real problem or answering a need - all about the user.

Gemma will explain how what she does is all about sharing experiences through powerful stories to foster learning and affective context - and how technology is a conduit to and with human connections.

Doors open at 12.30pm, with the talk starting at 12.45pm, ending at 1.15pm - so you can get back to your afternoon.

A liquid refreshment is provided for all attendees thanks to our friends at Orchard.

Please note: Food is not provided as part of the event.
