We love a good trade show at TechTalk HQ. We were only too pleased to head-up to London Excel with our mobile pod for a couple days in June for the Tech XLR8 Show.

We met so many fantastic companies at the show and discovered some fantastic innovation that is happening right here in the UK. Exciting times.

Listen above for one of these fantastic companies.

Robots, robots everywhere

September 1, 2017

Yesterday was football’s famed ‘Transfer Deadline Day’ but we wouldn’t have swapped our guests for anybody else.

We did have one change in the studio though. After what seemed like an age of waiting, we welcomed Dan Hawkes back from his long summer sojourn to join Steve Griffiths, who seemed a bit jealous.

Any jealousy was soon banished when we spoke with our first guest. One of our favourite tech advancements is robotics, so we were delighted to welcome Rich Walker from Shadow Robot. They literally make robots. No kidding.

Moving on,  it’s the end of an era on The TechTalk Show. We had our last Unboxing session…but did the final product rock, or did it go back into the box?

To get us through the emotion of the last Unboxing, we heard back from one of the fantastic companies that we met at the Unbound event in July, Andrew Ko introduced us to his company, Personalyze, and explained what profiling technology involves.

Going back to robotics, we spoke to a company who could well be developing the next RoboCop. They are called Concorde Security and have already made their name in Asia and now they are bringing their security expertise to the UK.

Unbound live special part 2

August 25, 2017

We met so many fantastic companies at the Unbound event a couple of weeks ago that we decided that one special show of interviews wasn’tenough.

Happily, we’re back with more. Steve Griffiths and James Sloan ran through some more of their highlights from the two days – from the ‘Fitbit for pets’ to the ‘Pokemon Go for brands’. Yep, we love a bit of a mixed bag on this show.

In the first half of the show you’ll hear from Seldon, Landmrk, Felcana and Pouch who all spoke with James. Steve then introduced his interesting trio of Shopest, Illumr and Appointedd.

Make sure you listen to the whole show though, as we have a special announcement about an even more special event that is coming to TechTalk soon. You may have seen mention of TechTalk 22 on our website or social media pages, so find out what it’s all about.

Making property fashionable

August 18, 2017

In a week where the Premier League returned to our television screens (not through Kodi boxes hopefully, naughty), Steve Griffiths and James Sloan felt like they were in the Theatre of Dreams with all the fantastic tech around them. 

First onto the airwaves was Anthony Rushworth from Homegrown. Steve likes a bit of property, so he was more than happy to discuss the intelligent property investment platform.

Daniel Craig was also confirmed for another instalment of James Bond this week, but we’re not sure our espionage-style Unboxing product would make the cut with Q.

Moving on, we decided that Steve and James need a style makeover, so we welcomed Aaron Jones from See Fashion into the studio. If you find yourself browsing through one brand’s website for ages each day, it’s probably because Aaron’s team have hooked you in.

Finally, we decided to get to grips with some legal discussion. Anthony Rose has founded Seed Legals, which allows founders and investors to create all the legal documents they need to build their company and close their funding round, online, in minutes from any connected device.

Sky high reviews

August 11, 2017

We aren’t sure he deserved one but, nonetheless, Dan Hawkes decided to swan off on holiday this week. Taking his place alongside Steve Griffiths was James Sloan – we treated him to a show full of great tech.

First up, we welcomed Ian Robb from Reputation Builder. What do they do? Well, they build reputations. The world of customer reviews is vast and difficult to negotiate, but Ian’s company is helping its clients to carve a path to greatness.

Another world that is vast and difficult to negotiate is the Unboxing world. None of the guests were impressed and we almost broke an iPhone in the process.

To lift our spirits, we then welcomed Ahrani Logan – who proceeded to whizz us into outer space. Her company, Peapodicity, are educators in STEM and STEAM but they do it with a difference. Their ‘AugmentifyIt’ app is bringing space to life with the help of AR. Very cool.

Finally, we know in our office that James likes to ask a question, so he loved Jeremy King’s company, Attest. These guys are revolutionising the difficult world of market research with helpful answers to essential questions.

Unbound live special

August 4, 2017

Like dogs being taken on a walk, we love a tech expo to get away from TechTalk HQ for a couple of days.

 In July we were delighted to attend the fantastic Unbound Live event at the Old Truman Brewery in London. The bustling venue showed us the best of UK innovation in tech – we had some great chats too.

On day one, James Sloan was delighted to meet Starling Bank who are revolutionising the way we do banking. He also loves a festival, so the guys at Festyvent were right up his street. Finally, he was able to keep his cool with the help of Doppel’s wearables.

Steve Griffiths was in the hot seat for the next day. Freestak have their finger on the pulse in the sporting world, Labrador are leading us on the way to decent smart phone devices and Mallzee offer ‘clothes shopping on speed’ according to Steve – you’d better listen to find out more.

Don’t be a data drip

July 28, 2017

With the news that Bill Gates lost, briefly, his title as the world’s richest man, Steve Griffiths and Dan Hawkes harboured dreams of making a charge for the no.1 spot; they’d better hope this packed show goes well. 

Our first guests have a company that could make a real impact. Alex Young heads a team of techie doctors who are helping start-ups in med tech with their company Healthcare Start-Up Society – they can offer all the fixing you need.

Unboxing was next and what a shocker – the product was universally liked! We were all a bit confused about what to do when the product doesn’t need to be binned.

Getting us back on our feet and delving into some interesting tech was Julie Evans from Exonar. Business owners will often realise that they have data flying everywhere but no way of tracking what is where – Julie’s company are here to sort it all out without the hassle of doing it yourself.

Our final guest has created what is essentially a watertight WhatsApp service for the VIPs for the world. There’s no need to worry about hacking, so doctors can discuss medical details, business owners can discuss deals and MPs can talk about expenses.
