Community Spotlight with Richard Berry

Like many others we have had to change the way we record our podcast for the time being. We have recorded our latest episode of the Community Spotlight series on Zoom so please forgive us if the quality isn’t as smooth as it usually is. 

In this interview, our very own Liam Potter aka Potts and Richard Berry discuss all the things UON’s Integrated Innovation Network (I2N) is doing in these times to connect those in the tech community to virtual events.

Hope you enjoy the episode!

Community Spotlight with Andrew Stace

Here is the first instalment of the community spotlight series. This was recorded in February earlier this year. Since this time recent events concerning the spread of COVID-19 have meant that tech events in Newcastle have come to a standstill until further notice. 

We will still be sharing content that we had recorded prior to this time in the hopes that we can provide a bit of distraction for our listeners. 

Hope you are all doing well and enjoy the episode!
