In this fireside chat, Mike Hawkyard from Gamebrain will cover many areas in 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.
Mike co-founded 4T2 (now known as Amuzo) in 1998. Games Amuzo produced for the brands like LEGO have topped the charts in every country with an App Store and been played over three billion times. The team are currently attempting to reach No.1 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!
Having helped put a management team into place at Amuzo, Mike now runs a Serious Game Studio called Gamebrain. In late March 2019, Gamebrain became part of The Access Group. This exciting development will accelerate Gamebrain’s production of a series of SaaS based Learning Games that help brands engage and educate their workforce.
