I’m looking forward to presenting at Viva Technology 2021 next week (16-19 June, 2021). I’m absolutely gutted to not be attending in person in Paris due to travel restrictions… but if there ever was a conference which should cope well with having a digital component it’s this one! Thus I shall be online for two panels about space activity: I’ll update once details are finalised.

Aside from having a range of high-level panels and speakers (including Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook, Mitchell Baker, Eric Yuan amongst others) this is also an excellent networking event bringing together entrepreneurs, investors, start-ups, journalists and consultants such as myself.

Attendance starts at €190: see the Book Your Pass page for full details.
