This week the Changeboard team – and our friends at Plotr – hosted our 2nd Future Talent conference in London. Five hundred professionals gathered at the Royal Opera House for a day of networking and collaboration, to watch our inspiring array of speakers challenge the impact of globalisation and the digital age on the world.

We cannot wait to share the full coverage of the event in our next issue of Changeboard magazine, but for now, here’s a little taster of the topics, the venue – and of course, our amazing audience – and some takeaways from the day.
