Guest Speaker: Giorgio Ungania ---Giorgio Ungania holds more than 20 years of experience in various aspects of media production and creative technology. He has been pioneering various new media technology driven projects in the UAE, and holds a successful track record and has collaborated with international cutting edge technology driven companies such as TED Conferences and Apple and Government entities in UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait and Jordan developing and leading media and education oriented initiatives.
