Thursday 21st February - Glug London Presents 'The Collaboration Economy'


The creative world in which we work is growing. There’s more tech, more devices, more styles, more formats in which we can deliver our work. Very few of the really amazing experiences we see are the result of any single creative or organisation. Most are created by close collaboration of many skills and disciplines across multiple organisations and individuals.
This evening of talks brings together five top players in the creative industry who came together to create Web Lab, as series of interactive installations connected to the web live at the Science Museum in London.

Speakers:

Google Creative Lab

Steve Vranakis: Executive Creative Director, EMEA

Steve brings almost 20 years of experience to Google from the world of digital, design and advertising. Some of the campaigns and platforms that he’s most recently been involved with include: Web Lab, a series of interactive installations connected to the web live at the Science Museum in London, World Wonders Project, which give access to the world¹s heritage sites through Street View, the launch of Google+  A life lived and shared, the  Jamal Edwards Chrome better web campaign, the Vs. g+ debates series featuring Richard Branson and Russell Brand and the YouTube Space Lab Channel and launch video which invited teens from all over the world to send their experiments to space in partnership with NASA and judged by Stephen Hawking. To date it has received over 50 million channel views.

Previously he was one of the original partners and Creative Director at VCCP London. His approach is simple: to create famous work that gets talked about. TV, digital, press, mobile, apps whatever. Things that people will want to interact with and continue to do so with over time. Stuff that people chat about over a pint, communications with cultural currency. Campaigns that contribute to popular culture and make people love brands. Creative properties that provide utility, content, entertainment and much more value to people’s lives than just a broadcast message.

Steve has worked at some of the biggest and best creative agencies in the world including: VCCP London, Foote Cone & Belding San Francisco, WCRS Arnold Worldwide Partners in London, Modem Media UK and DDB in his native Vancouver.

 

B-Reel

Riccardo Giraldi: CD - B-Reel Products

Riccardo Giraldi is Creative Director at B-Reel Products New York. He started his career playing with Lego and is not sure how he ended up working in the digital industry. Over the years Riccardo developed a strong geek accent and found wild satisfaction in watching his ideas quickly coming to life thanks to computers and the internet. Riccardo loves getting his left and right brain hemispheres to work together. He worked in Florence, Stockholm and London with companies such as unit9, Helpful Strangers, Specialmoves and B-Reel. He covered different roles over the years in his attempt to learn as much as possible concerning what he loves. Unfortunately he keeps falling in love with new disciplines and wonders if this will ever come to an end.

Additional information:

Once again we're back at Shoreditch Town Hall which we think was a great new venue for the November event. There will be a few more tweaks downstairs and more things outside of the main talks but the larger room, seating and big screen seemed to work well.

 

Think that's it for now, we only have 600 tickets for this event so please snap them up quick to avoid missing out.

 

Thanks

Nick, Dan & Ian

    I agree with all of the below, as I tried to stay until the very end? but I had to leave before it finished! As at the end the speakers I feel just went into way too much detail & it was very hard to keep that level of interest until the very end?!? So I think, a bit shorter & sweeter might have helped?
    On saying that, I loved it & it was a very interesting collaboration
    & outcome

    February 25, 2013

    • Nick C.

      Well, the format has changed a little. Natural progress we call it. Comments heard and taken on board. Thanks again. Were your careers evenings really this good? :)

      February 25, 2013

    • Nick C.

      Oh, also we do have an after party, those that stayed until the end came and we had a good time until the early hours with the speakers and other Gluggers.

    I really enjoyed the line-up and all the presentations but was disappointed in the amount of people leaving throughout the night. The tickets sell out so fast so im confused as to why people leave. They know what the line-up is so I can only put it down to a lack of respect for the speakers. I hope the next Glug has a full house at the end of the night.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
