Hear from our speakers….

Lead thinker and practitioner in VR Antonia Koop directs a team of thought leaders and practitioners within the worlds of neuroscience, cognitive and socio-emotional development and professional education. KTN have invited Antonia to speak at Innovate 2017 on the topic of Immersive for the Creative and Other Industries.

We asked Antonia what the key message is from her talk at Innovate 2017 

The role Virtual Reality technology will play in the future is beyond our wildest imagination. For the UK to take a leading role in mainstreaming VR and its application there are a range of preconditions; the most important is to create a mind-set that nurtures truly creative thinking, to create an environment which actively enables daring experimentation and build the risk tolerance required to fully embrace a seriously disruptive technology.

KTN has also invited International expert in Digital Manufacturing Andrew Steele, Managing Director of FORCAM UK Ltd, to speak at Innovate 2017 on the topic of optimising the Digital Revolution for Manufacturers.

We asked Andrew why he feels is it important for businesses to attend Innovate 2017?

Any business who needs to understand how technology is changing the face of their industry should get to Birmingham in November to learn from key innovators and network with leaders.

Another of our keynotes, Professor Andrew J Krentz, Chief Medical Officer & Founding Director of Metabolic Intelligence will focus on the subject of diet related diseases

We asked Andrew what will be the key focus of his talk…

The term malnutrition has come to encompass both under-nutrition and obesity; these disorders may be considered two sides of the same coin.  Enormous effort has been put into stemming the rising tide of global obesity that has emerged in recent decades.  However, translation of scientific knowledge into effective action can only be described as a failure; obesity has doubled since 1980.
