We're closing the year with a Breakfast Briefing that packs a punch, showing you the top tech trends that really matter for 2018, in partnership with Propeller.

Get a jumpstart and discover where and how you can harness 2018's predictions to create innovative and impactful work for your clients.

Join us and a panel of industry experts, as they take us on a whistle-stop tour of some of the key tech trends that they predict will be hot (and what will not!) in 2018, so you can narrow your focus in on the tech that's worth its salt. 


Moderator: Ben Titchmarsh, Head of Media and Marketing at Propeller Group

Ben is Propeller Group’s head of media and marketing. A familiar face at industry events, ranging from Cannes Lions and DMEXCO to Mobile World Congress and Advertising Week in London and New York, Ben works across Propeller’s client roster with some of the world’s most exciting companies in media, advertising and digital. A former journalist with a fascination for how technology is transforming our lives, Ben will be quizzing the panel on the essential tech trends to watch out for in the next 12 months and cutting through industry hyperbole and cynicism in equal measure. 

Guy Armitage, CEO, Zealous

Guy (said Ghee) is an AI grad gone rogue. After a stint at the London Stock Exchange he left for Egypt, founding a start-up in Cairo.

Karen helps brands and organisations evolve their marketing from both a strategic and implementation perspective, weaving together people and ideas to create and maintain cultures of innovation and agility.

With 15 years experience specialising in digital working as part of the wider marketing mix she uses technology as an enabler to keep up with customer demand, shaping transformational strategies that disrupt in the right way but click together seamlessly.

Having instigated a culture of positive disruption and rapid innovation at adamandeveDDB, she currently leads the teams and clients alike to look at things differently; constantly challenging the norm, lifting the bar and breaking the rules.
