About this event


This month, we're delighted to be joined by Mike Hawkyard from Gamebrain, the serious games division of Amuzo, to talk all things digital gaming. Mike will share his experience of building a business that harnesses the power of play to engage, educate and inspire mobile audiences around the world. Amuzo branded games have topped the charts in over 150 countries, been played over three billion times and the team are currently attempting to reach number one on the iOS App Store for the twentieth time. So who better to talk to us about how to start, grow and run businesses in the gaming app development world, than Mike!


But it's not all about devising digital games that can hit the top spot on the IOS App Store. Day to day, Mike leads Amuzo’s new Serious Games Division known as Gamebrain. They create learning games and gamified applications for a diverse range of corporate clients.


In this interactive fireside chat, Mike will be covering:
