BGGD Reloaded #11 – Landscape Architecture, Podcasts and welcome 2020

Podcast image

The Copernican Calendar has transitioned to the year 2020 – so let’s get started with the amazing world of podcasting, one of my personal passions (listening that is, not yet making). However, if you have wondered, how these things get done, join us and our guest will tell us all about how she created her podcast and what is involved:

About Win

Win is a Chartered Landscape Architect, practicing in a young and small-sized practice in Bath. She also writes for Land8 (an online social and information hub for professional landscape architects and students). With a huge interest in the theory and connections that encompass landscape as a whole, she started Thitpin Podcast in October 2019.

Landscape is a vast subject and on the show, she aims to explore the intersections of landscape with culture/ identity/ design/ art/ wellbeing etc.

Her guests to date have been a monk, an environmental journalist and a research psychologist. It is still in the very early stages of set up. During the talk, she will be sharing the knowledge shared on the episodes thus far – enabling you to start to uncover and explore the landscape around you from different perspectives!

She will also be sharing the future vision of the platform and hopefully get everyone involved in the growth of its journey via engagement and feedback.

Today, we will be back at The Guild, doors open from 6pm and we will slowly ease into this session around 6.30pm / 6.45pm.

So pop along, have a chat and a drink.

BGGD Reloaded #10 – Anthropology + Technology AND Networking

Anthropology

Apologies for missing a blog … the website was unfortunately out of action for a while, but it’s finally back and so is Bath GGD!

Tuesday, November 26, 2019 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Sometimes we like to offer a mixed bag of useful things and that is what you will get tonight. I recently attended the Anthropology + Technology Conference in Bristol, the first of its kind in Bristol and full of exciting talks.

The subject itself is so important, I asked Dawn Walter (the event organiser) to speak to us tonight about it: The intersection of human and tech and why we need Anthropologists within this area of tech in the first place. (https://www.linkedin.com/in/dawn-walter-b36903a/)

When it comes to conferences, some of you may not like to attend due to the dreadful task of Networking. But worry no longer help is on the way:

How to network for people who hate people

Do you want to know how to talk to people in a business social context without panicking and/or wanting to curl up and die? It can suck to network as an introverted person, but bona fide introvert and professional networker Margaret Davidson from Mayden Academy has found some ways to make it work – and even, sometimes, be enjoyable. Find out some of her shortcuts to making networking less dreadful. (https://www.linkedin.com/in/margaret-davidson-994b5a30/)

And tonight the meeting will be hosted by Bath Spa Uni’s new Enterprise and Innovation Hub at Palace Yard Mews. It is freshly painted and looks good.

Hoping to see lots of you there! Sign up here on our meetup page.

BGGD Reloaded #8 – Let’s talk about AI

+++ Noter, there has been a CHANGE OF VENUE – we are now at Spaces in the centre of Bath +++

Hello there fellow earthling –

Summer is over (What!) and let’s kick off this new school year with a special event hosted with support of Bath Spa University’s Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries and the South West Creative Technology Network, thanks Kate Pullinger and Rachel Pownall.

Our first speaker will be Coral Manton who is planning on talking about Women in Tech focusing on live coding, games development and Women in AI.

Our second speaker will be myself talking to you about Getting Ethical with AI. How can we add ethical considerations into those processes and why I believe that the Finance Industry would be a perfect guinea pig for adding policies.

There will be drinks and nibbles and I am looking forward to seeing you all after this long hiatus.

Note, SPACES has no reception after 6pm, so if you are running late, please let me know and we will ensure you get in. The meetup will be on the 2nd Floor – just follow the Buzz.

BGGD Reloaded #6 – Success and Failures

Hannah Sweet Pic

***Please note: The venue is Rocketmakers, so please arrive before 6pm otherwise you will not be able to get into the building***

Hello there fellow earthling –

Tuesday the 19th March we will meet at the Rocketmakers offices in Bath where Hannah (Rocketmakers) will talk to us about what she learned from working with different startups. How are some doing better than others? Why might one fail while another succeeds? Are there commonalities and if so, what are they?
This will be a great interactive session where we can share our experiences and learn from one another.
