Sprint 13 – the story in pictures

Just got back from taking photos at today’s Sprint 13 conference, so what was it like? Think of the famous Hokusai wave and you’ll get a sense of the energy that was unleashed at Queen Elizabeth Conference Hall today…

It was a complex event with high profile speakers like Martha Lane Fox and Francis Maude in a large conference hall, 6 break out workshops in smaller rooms (to run concurrently), registration, refreshments area, not to mention the beautiful snowscape of Big Ben in the distance.

So, four hours to cover a dozen speeches, six workshops and capture the feel of the event. These should give you a sense of how it went. We captured loads of video of every workshop and talk, and we’ll be sharing these with you as soon as they are through the editing process hopefully early next week.

    And so what? For those of us that are interested and received email notification, this page couldn’t really have been less useful. Poor understanding of why your customers might read these pages…at least linking back to the event agenda so people could relate the photos to what happened would have been something. Anyone outside our close-knit community in Whitehall might be wondering who those people named are and why they are important to the story.

    Hi Graham, thanks for your calm reply – having taken the time to read your update I’m sure there’s loads of us that can see there’s more to come, and will appreciate the update when it does. I’m not really sure why you’ve been hit with that negativity when you’ve been perfectly clear this is not the whole story.

    Fash, I think the ‘poor understanding’ isn’t with Graham.
