Experience the Difference with Acquia in 2022

Our guest speaker, David Rowan, will give a thought provoking talk on 'Where emerging tech is taking tomorrow's customer experience'.

They started their Acquia journey in 2019, using Acquia Site Studio to streamline their website hosting and publishing process. Fast forward two years, and Bayer is rolling out 100+ websites per month, reducing time to market, increasing velocity to launch, and giving marketers back time to focus on what comes next.

'Where emerging tech is taking tomorrow's customer experience'

Since founding and taking on the role as Editor-in-Chief of WIRED magazine’s UK edition, David has invested in more than 60 early-stage tech companies, including two that became billion-dollar “unicorns”, and is an adviser to Lakestar, one of Europe’s largest venture-capital funds. He has also authored a best-selling book “Non-Bullshit Innovation: Radical Ideas from the World’s Smartest Minds” which sets out sixteen proven strategies for future-proofing a successful business — from “Turn products into services” to “Empower your team” and “Become a platform”.


At Experience Acquia London, he will give a thought provoking talk on the metaverse and NFTs and challenge us all to think about the business, personal, and broader societal implications of the emergence of these technologies. 

17:40 - late
