Enterprising Games Week – London

15 May 2007

I had a conversation with Martine Parry at ANGILS about the upcoming enterprise games week (which is a bit confusingly only 2 days, 27-28th June). Disclosure – whilst at Futurelab I negotiated a mutual membership arrangement between Futurelab and Angils. Futurelab is not currently involved in the Enterprising Games Week and I am no longer working for Futurelab.

There’s an Early Bird discount that ends 21st May, more info from martine[@]applygroup[.]com +44 7788 191252
