(R)Evolution 2015 Speaker Interviews: Emma Mulqueeny

In preparation for (R)Evolution 2015 we caught up with Emma Mulqueeny.

What do you think is most exciting about how the tech / web industry has evolved and how it stands at the end of 2015?

I think the most exciting thing is the relentlessness and the speed of it, it has given everyone a glimpse of the possible and awakened the entrepreneur in us all. But MOST exciting of all, is the connectivity and the fact we can all communicate in instant time in such a variety of ways – so long as we have wifi or data.

If you could predict the thing that will dominate tech columns in 2016, what will it be?

Fintech, medical tech and transport tech

What single project are you most proud of?

The Festival of Code

Do you have a guilty secret ritual when it comes to watching films i.e. watching old Doctor Who episodes from behind the sofa or only watching Star Trek while participating in drinking games (these are not my guilty secrets btw! ~ grin!)

You can’t put Netflix and chill here (or if you print that people will laugh) but no – I do love a bit of bingewatching Netflix and duvet days.

Emma’s Talk:

The 97ers: Emma will be introducing you to the 97ers – a very interesting sub­category of millenials. She will talk about how they are learning, sharing, influencing and breaking things better for the children growing up in their wake.

You can see Emma’s talk at (R)Evolution on Friday 25th September at The Walker Theatre, Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury.

Tickets are still available and can be purchased from the dedicated conference website here: http://2015.shropgeek-revolution.co.uk/
