LGGD & LBG’s Digital Breakthrough Women’s Network – Is it Really Mobile First? A Panel Debate



For years pundits have been trying to tell us it was finally the year of the mobile. Instead of this bright new future what has happened is that our gadgets have become indispensable mini computers. The 2nd and 3rd screen revolution has fundamentally changed the way we consume content and as a result it has caused a fundamental shift in the way we distribute that content across multiple devices. Understanding the future of the mobile for interactive advertising and storytelling opens the door to the relevance of wearables, virtual reality and augmented reality. Discover the future of the mobile device and the content that drives the portable screen in everyone’s pocket. Should we be building everything for mobile first, including our clothing? We ask our expert panel this and other questions.


Sanj Surati – Holition, AR/VR creative agency working with high profile luxury brands who also have a commitment to have a 50% female developer workforce

Peter Robinson – Dubit Limited, research agency with a finger on the pulse of emerging trends for kids media including supplying research and findings at Children’s Media Conference and Kids Screen

Imre Jele – Bossa Studios, mobile game makers with several successful titles out on mobile as well as console

Femi A – Design Juju, UX/UI expert

Chris Gale, Odyssey Mobile, mobile advertising agency with a firm handle on creative storytelling/advertising that takes mobile immersion to new places


This event is in partnership with LBG’s Digital Breakthrough Women’s Network and they are providing the space which is HUGE! Lots of food, lots of drink and lots of debate! They also have jobs available in a variety of areas which we will have more information on at and after the event.


On September 23rd, we expect the event to kick off with networking drinks at 5:30pm but the actual debate will start around 6:30 and last until 7:30 meaning you can continue the discussion over a glass of juice or wine later on.


Venue will be

48 Chiswell Street

London Girl Geek Dinners 5th Anniversary Event at Google UK

It’s that time of the year again – London Girl Geek Dinners is turning FIVE YEARS OLD!

Yes that’s right, five years of bringing girl geeks in London a chance to meet, mingle network, find out about some great tech firms, find a new job, go shopping and enjoy learning.  We have had some phenomenal sponsors over the last five years and for our birthday we have a dazzling array of them.

This year, we have a limited number of tickets (80) so we’ve decided to do a raffle.  You can go into the newbie lottery if you are new (and thus aren’t on any of our attendee lists) or the old hat lottery if you’ve signed up for something before.  Part of our goal in having this event is to increase the number of members we have on the Google group as well as getting new people out.  Please join the Google Group to get the URL for tickets: http://groups.google.co.uk/group/london-girl-geek-dinners

We’ll draw ticket winners on TUESDAY JULY 27th giving everyone plenty of time to get their name in the hat.

The event will kick off at 6pm at Google on AUGUST 4th with a bit of mingling and then some dinner.  We will then have 3 great speakers in Sue Black speaking on the Women of Bletchley Park, Sarah Gordon of Google speaking on mobile engineering and hopefully a third speaker we’re just finalising.  It will be an inspirational evening!  Afterwards we hope to have something for dessert and mingle and mix until 9pm.

The event will be at Google in their main canteen.  Google UK  have generously donated space and dinner and a goodie bag with a few things in it to London Girl Geek Dinners.  We are extremely proud and pleased to have Google as our main sponsor and to have one of their engineers as a speaker! 

In addition to the generous Google sponsorship we have some other amazing sponsors:
The wines we will be quaffing are from the Dinastia Vivanco winery and fabulous wine museum in Rioja (Spain).  The red wine is the Rioja Crianza 2005, the White wine  (Vivanco Blanco) is a blend of Viura and Malvasia from 2009, and Rose is Vivanco Rosado 2009 – delicious rose.  If this sounds fabulous and you’d like to know more, check www.dinastiavivanco.com  and become a fan of the Dinastia Vivanco wine Facebook page to show you appreciate them providing the wine.  We’ll also be asking volunteers to just chat about or give their opinoons on wine in general on the night as well so please do volunteer 30sec of your time if you can.

Green & Blacks are donating their new Organic Milk & White Miniature Bar Collection to the goodie bag as well!  Green & Black’s NEW Milk Miniature Bar Collection gives you a taste of our milk and white chocolate bars. Contains 12 miniature bars ranging from our uniquely cocoa-rich milk chocolate with crunchy butterscotch or roasted almonds, to our new Creamy Milk and White Chocolate. Oh dear goodness YUMMY!

In the goodie bag will also be VitaminWater’s new drink – i-focus.  i-focus will have you tickled pink, with a delicious strawberry-kiwi flavour, packed with antioxidant vitamin c, energy releasing b vitamins for a little more kapow and vitamin a to help maintain healthy vision.  Pretty in pink and giving away an iPad to boot – defo the water of choice for the girl geek!

We also have the amazing Juniper Networks involved donating some lovely stuff to us though we haven’t confirmed what just yet so we’ll leave that as the surprise element of the evening. Juniper networks provide high speed, reliable switching routers and you can see their suite of kick butt stuff here

The lovely Iona Innovations are also donating raffle prizes for us to help us fund our work at getting charitable status.  So bring your pound coins and buy some tickets on the night!

We’ll even have some Forbidden Planet flyers as we know SF and Girl Geeks often go hand in hand.

So as you can see it is going to be a fantastic evening and one you won’t want to miss!

See you there!


Girl Geek Dinners: British women of Manga panel

London Girl Geek Dinners are proud to announce another cosmic event in conjunction with Sci-fi London 2010….

Although there have been notable and successful female comic book creators on both sides of the Atlantic over the last half century, it is the translation of Japanese Manga in the West that has seen considerably more female comics creators join the medium in recent years. This is possibly a combination of Manga having a greater female appeal than traditional Western comics and original Japanese Manga being already created by women in Japan.

To discuss these issues we have a trio of up and coming UK Manga creators:

Kate Brown illustrated the Manga Shakespeare adaptation A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Emma Vieceli is contributing to the comic strip adaptations of the songs of Tori Amos Comic Book Tattoo and continues to draw an online Manga story, Dragon Heir.

Karen Rubins found early acclaim for her self published graphic novel The Dark.

Chair: Helen McCarthy one of the UK s leading experts on Manga and Anime.

Full Details:

  • Date & Time: Thursday, 29th April 2010, 6.30pm
  • Venue: Apollo West End Theatre, 19 Lower Regent Street, SW1 4LR; nearest tube is Piccadilly Circus, Directions here
  • Hosted by: Girl Geek Dinners and SCI-FI-LONDON
  • Food & Drink: Drinks and nibbles in the bar, from 6.30pm
  • Attendees: As usual, men allowed as a guest of a LGGD member.

Tickets: Available from Wednesday 14th April at: http://scifi-london.eventbrite.com/
