Ok. Take a moment. Try not to get too excited... but we have HUGE news.

It is nearly Christmas! So, what better time for us to have an extravaganza of an event?!

Join us as we look back over the highs and lows of the year's tech for good scene with a Tech for Good Live panel. What's more – we'll be recording it as part of our (infamous) ongoing podcast series! SO MUCH FUN.

Wait? And there is more...?

It is also a Christmas party!

And no-one likes a party on their own, so this year we'll be joined by the amazing NUX and Ladies that UX! Now also with MCR Fred!!! 🎉

Join our expert panel and special guest(s) as we review the year in pro-social and ethical tech. (And record it LIVE)

If you've heard the podcasts , you might know why this is a bad idea.

FIRST COME FIRST ENTRY. 100 CAPACITY. FREE DRINK ON ENTRY. NO FREE FOOD BUT MENU AVAILABLE (we skint). CASH BAR FOR MORE DRINKS. 6:30 for 7pm podcast start 8pm - 10pm for more eating and drinking and festivities.

***What's the panel and podcast about?***

From rampant AI's and gamification to social fundraising and new ways of donating. Join us on a meandering ramble through the ever changing landscape of tech that makes the world a better place. NOW LIVE. Oh my goodness. This time, as it's Christmas we'll REVIEW THE YEAR. YES THE WHOLE YEAR.
