“Thoroughly enjoyed the mix of Wired2014, and the enthusiasm of the crowd at NextGen they were great events, really well executed.”
Mark Chapman

“Congratulations to you and your team(s) for an absolutely fantastic day on Saturday. The whole experience was so well thought out and the speakers that I saw were really inspiring (even for someone who wasn’t the target market!). We were so pleased to be involved on the day and I know that our competition winners had a fantastic experience.”
Ben Sawtell
Macmillan Science and Education

“Your event is top notch. All the staff, attendees and speakers I met were inspirational. You really have created something special. CyFi has been on cloud 9 all day. The occulus was her favorite part, followed by talking with all the people that introduced themselves after her talk. She feels like she was successful getting people to think about hackers differently.”
Nico Sell

“I was so impressed with the children; so switched on, interested in the topics being discussed and aiming to learn from the incredible schedule you guys put on. It made me think I wish I tried harder at school!”
Lloyd Abbott
Cow PR

“I really enjoyed myself… Those were some frighteningly smart kids! I dropped in to a few sessions and found them entertaining/somewhat inspiring. I wish I had gone to the same thing when I was their age!”
