I'm a Bath-based technology project manager, and having implemented a load of corporate systems for a load of clients, I decided that there must be a better way to use my skills, so I co-founded a startup in my 'spare' time: http://speakr.co.uk. Working with a couple of brilliant young freelancers, we've built a prototype, tested it in six schools with 109 kids, written up our research, and are currently seeking seed funding.
Currently running Speakr - http://speakr.co.uk
From an implementation perspective I've always been on the client side, managing tech companies as third party suppliers. In that capacity: Microsoft, HP, EMC, OpenText, TotalMobile, Capita, OLM, Matrix SCM, Quickheart.
Hi, I'm co-founder of Speakr.co.uk, a startup building a web tool to enable kids to articulate how they feel in school, and to help teachers see who needs some help.
Great meetup - loads of friendly people doing some really interesting stuff.
