Didn’t you get the memo?

September 29, 2017

Fifa, the best-selling game in the UK, is back, so it’s lucky that we recorded another fantastic TechTalk on the day before its release. Now it’s Friday, I doubt there’s anybody reading this at all.

We also had a presenting debut for Russ Shaw, the Founder of Tech London Advocates. He joined Sue Nelson and Sarah Luxford to complete our superstar line-up.

For our first conversation, we decided to mix up some different forms of media. Video may have killed the radio star, but we were pretty confident that Alex Wood, the print expert, meant us no harm. Alex is the Editor of The Memo Magazine and he gave us an insight into the challenges that he has faced.

Taking a break, we did a bit of clever shopping. Adimo were one of the fantastic companies that we spoke to at the Unbound event – their software is gaining customers and generating loyalty.

Before we called time to allow our fans the chance to pre-order their favourite game, we heard from Suki Fuller. Suki has a rich experience in the tech industry and is one of the Women In Tech Advocates – she’s got a number of other projects on-the-go too.

Predicting a bright future

September 22, 2017

It was all change at TechTalk this week. Not only did we have a new studio, we also had a new presenting line-up. 

Joining Sue Nelson on the mic was Paul Armstrong, from the tech consultancy HERE/FORTH, and Sarah Luxford who founded the TLA Women in Tech movement.

First to be grilled by the new team was Jeremy Sosabowski from AlgoDynamix. They have created some very clever software which focuses on financial forecasting for the future. They don’t believe in looking back at the past.

From software to security, we heard back from one of the companies we met at Unbound a while ago. Richard Pursey is CEO at SafeToNet and they are focused on keeping children safe online through things like app management and device blocking.

From software to security and finally to students. If you live in a University town you may be noticing a fresh batch of weary and hungover millennials – you can forgive them for it during Freshers’ Week but they’ll knuckle down soon enough with the help of George Biddle’s SignIn Student app. Attend lectures, get jobs. Simples.

Don’t sweat about Molli

September 15, 2017

Apple had a bit of an embarrassing gaffe this week when their facial recognition software let them down upon the release of iPhone X but neither Steve Griffiths nor Dan Hawkes need a phone to be recognised – they are TechTalk famous. 

Our first guest’s name is Huw Prosser but he came on to TechTalk to tell us about Molli. She is the receptionist that doesn’t get tired, sick or make an error – she is mates with Alexa and is made by Blooware Technologies.

Next up was somebody who is of particular relevance to Dan. He likes his fitness, not that you’d know it (sorry Dan), so he enjoyed meeting Stephanie Newport-Booth from GoSweat. They are your one-stop shop for finding the best ways and places to work up a sweat.

Our last guest is aiming to make our travelling experiences a lot better. Tom Charman is from Kompas App and they describe themselves as the pocket guide to the world’s urban jungles – whether you like cats drinking tea or Peruvian cock fighting, it’s all there.

Cuckuu

September 13, 2017

You’d think with all of the social networks out in the domain these days, there would be no room for innovation…Cuckuu disagree. 

We caught up with Joao Jesus at the Tech XLR8 show and introduced his unique alarm clock app. You can setup public alarms for events that you think others may like and can even make sure you wake up next to your partner if you’re long distance. Cute.

Find out the full capabilities of this great app by visiting the website and listening back to the podcast.

Indicate to a tech great

September 8, 2017

While children may not have been looking forward to returning to school, we were pretty sure Steve Griffiths and Dan Hawkes were buzzing to arrive back at the studio for another terrific TechTalk Show.

We had an early indicator that this show would be a good one with our first guest Jonny Stephens. Jonny told us all about IndiCater – they are making waves in the hospitality industry with their clever software that just takes the fuss out of things. Ideal.

From food to apps, we seamlessly pushed our way into conversation with Max Williams. Pusher are giving a nudge to the tech world. Their apps and coding have already secured some very impressive clients.

We were still hungry after our first chat, so we hastily turned to seafood. While we were disappointed to learn that Lobster weren’t actually producers of lobster when we met them at Unbound recently, we were very impressed with their snappy collection of photos.

To bring the show to a close, we were initiated into a tribe. Adam Fagg is part of the Innovation Tribe in Kent and he told us all about how their group can help solve problems and launch new products for their members.

We visited the Unbound Global event in London for the first time back in July and we fell in love with it.

 

The trade festival allowed us to meet some really innovative start-ups and SMEs who are really exciting the world of tech. We were wowed by the ambition and creativity of those we met.
