Speaker Line-up: Part 1
So here they are, the first three of our Vol#13 Line-up to wet your appetites...

Tony, Paul and George will be bringing you funny, startling, thought-provoking and new perspectives on the power to disrupt markets, science, nature, behaviour and so much more!

Here's a little about their professional backgrounds,
to give you an idea of the calibre we're talking about here...

Professor Tony Ryan (OBE)
Pro-Vice-Chancellor - Pure Science

Leeds born Tony Ryan (OBE) has three degrees and during his time at the University of Sheffield, he has established the world leading Polymer Centre. Tony is a regular contributor to radio and print media and was the first professor to be made an EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) Senior Media Fellow.
Tony works on Project Sunshine, a project that unites world-leading researchers from across the faculties of Science, Engineering and Social Science at the University of Sheffield. Together, they are developing new ways to use the Sun’s energy more efficiently to increase food production and provide more renewable energy.
Tony’s most recent co-authored book, ‘Project Sunshine: How Science Can Use the Sun to Fuel and Feed the World’, explains how we are going to live, and going to have to live, in the near future.

Paul Beech
Pimoroni Ltd

What has been described as the “best-looking case that’s available for the Raspberry Pi” sold over 1000 units in its first week of trading. The ‘Pibow’ was designed by Derbyshire-born Paul Beech of Partnership Pimoroni Ltd which states, “We are a company of Makers and Educators in Sheffield, UK”.
The Raspberry Pi was created in the UK as a low cost gadget which is perfect for encouraging children to learn about how computers really work. Paul Beech, a fan of the gadget, spotted a gap in the market when he realised that cases for the Raspberry Pi were attractive but didn’t necessarily appeal to children. It was from this moment of realisation that the colourful Pibow was born.
Pibow is a brand name created through the combination of words ‘Raspberry Pi’ and ‘rainbow’. The case, which is assembled by the consumer by combining a choice of colourful layers, continues to be in demand since it went to market in 2012.
