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 #6 – Success and Failures

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.
