VRFocus Diversity Initiative July 2018 Event
VRFocus Diversity Initiative (VRDI) has the aim to make emerging XR technologies such as AR and VR more inclusive. This is done by offering participants from under-represented groups the opportunity to get hands on with high-end VR headsets, 360 cameras and VR ready laptops to create either a 360 film or VR experience.
The 2018 Events are held every 2 months and I was accepted to attend Event held Tuesday, 31st July 2018. This was hosted by Plexal: Technology Innovation Centre London. It was organised and facilitated by Nina Salomons, VRDI Lead & Media Content Producer.
The workshop unleashed my creativity, because Course content and instruction was very well tailored. Most importantly Nina Salomons, the VRDI Lead & Facilitator, ensured good attendee interaction and focus on outcomes. The VR (immersion) demos on the day influenced me as well as my discussion with instructors and attendees to understand the opportunities in emerging XR technologies. Having taken part in the this Initiative, I am now prepared to take on role of project manager/producer in the Media & Entertainment sector.

Choosing a franchise business model to invest in for your future is one of the biggest decisions you will make. This requires you have a skilled and reputable Franchise Broker who will have a number of franchises in their portfolio that range in price, industry, and business structure.
IT DOES NOT COST YOU ANYTHING!
Franchisors pay MatchPoint for finding them suitable franchisees. It actually saves them money in the long run, because they only have to deal with a small number of highly suited applicants rather than large numbers of unsuitable applicants.

What riles me about networking is that it is an Industry. For the few, they would have done their networking on the playing fields of Eton and country clubs. Others have opera, cricket fields, golf rounds…etc. Now for my networking fix I simply hang around with my mates around “the docklands” in East London!! Continue reading
As new technologies bring the world closer together, companies are tempted to go global. The bright lights of international markets are attractive both to Startups and the established brands.
It is alluring as it offers plenty of opportunities; however this venture can also be unsuccessful. Therefore, the ability to skilfully navigate in a global environment is essential. In order to minimise the risk of failure or falling into too many pitfalls on the way, ask yourself some questions before preparing your strategy.
