Jeff Coghlan, Managing Director, Matmi
As a digital strategist, my opinions – not always popular or mainstream – have been sought by clients and major advertising agencies. I have been invited to be a guest speaker at many prestigious events to discuss a variety of topics; ranging from the evolution of casual gaming, tech convergence, gamification to the emergence of IPTV.
Some of the more recent speaker engagements include: The Develop Conference (2009, 2010, 2012), GSummit (Gamification) in San Francisco (2012) Elmwood’s Digital Picnic (2008), Brandhouse Digital Sparks (2010), a round table with Brand-e.biz (the branded entertainment specialist site) on "Why Brands Play Games”, and more recently I did a talk at TEDx Liverpool (2012) on the convergence of mobile technology and what that means for the creative digital industry. I am also regularly on panel discussions run by MoMoMcr, Manchester Digital and TIGA. The uptake of mobile devices and the oncoming technology of IPTV suggests we are heading towards exciting times within the digital industry, and I for one am looking forward to seeing the next stage in this industries evolution.
