    point that it is always worth trying an idea No matter how small or how crazy you never know where it may lead I highly recommend everyone watch this short video about Dominic It is certainly an insight into a truly creative mind https vimeo com 122959827 Tuesday Andrew Spooner Welcome to 2017 Andrew is a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and along with two colleagues he spoke about all sorts of cool and futuristic technologies I was really excited about this session because as a Windows PC user I always feel like the odd one out in the Apple world of creatives The talk did not disappoint I think the highlight was the stuff about machine learning Andrew s colleague Amy showed us a live demo of software analysing our tweets and reflecting its interpretation of their emotion in a colour changing orb Wow that was hard to explain Basically we could see our tweets showing up on the screen in real time and when we were asked to tweet particularly negative things the orb changed from green to an orangey red Maybe you had to be there But it was pretty awesome Stacey Mulcahy Programming Play Stacey is particularly awesome She works for Microsoft in New York and describes herself as a tinkerer who would rather be making than meeting She spoke about facing creative blocks as a developer getting inspired trying new things and sharing knowledge Stacey already had everyone captivated by her energetic and natural delivery but the barrage of GIFs that was her slideshow really was something special Despite the banter Stacey s talk had true substance and addressed one of the most common complaints of creative employees She urged us not to get bogged down in work that restricts us the endless deadlines and monotony of some client work She reminded us that it s so important to find fun in our work challenge ourselves to try new things and always make time for side projects You never know what your ideas might turn into and how they could be used even if they don t seem relevant right away Ros Horner Get it done Ros is a designer who s worked on Adidas Reebok Volvo and McLaren She is a lovely lady with a major passion for getting things done I so enjoyed hearing about her journey and what s driven her to get where she is today She has now turned her attention to inspiring others with a fascinating side project on life goals Ros spoke at Reasons 2 years ago and collected everyone s goals on bits of paper following up on them and hearing about people s success She shared some of the most interesting and inspiring ones with us and then asked us to share our goals with her too I believe that even the act of writing down a goal can kick start you into gear So having shared my ambitions with Ros I feel like there is a
