Peter Lord, Co-founder and Creative Director, Aardman Animations

Wednesday 27 January 2021

Animation is a curious business: it tends to be a private and self-effacing activity, but the word itself is a statement of God-like intention.

Peter Lord, and his long-term partner David Sproxton experimented with the craft when they were still at school. At the time it was far-from-obvious as a career move; but those early experiments have proved to be crucial to the creation of a very British creative powerhouse with a worldwide reputation.

Peter will take us through some of the key stages, the happy accidents and the essential relationships that made it possible for the company to develop. So much so, that two years ago, Aardman could transition into an employee owned company.

Diversity and inclusion – why it’s never been more important
Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, President, techUK and Digital Leaders, Co-Chair, Institute of Coding

Wednesday 10 February 2021

As tech becomes increasingly influential in our lives, we need to take further steps to ensure it works for everyone. Diversity and inclusion are essential to those that write our digital future as we can only thrive in a digital future as long as all our voices are heard. In fact, digital exclusion is becoming a key issue in our society, as millions of people in the UK don’t have the essential digital skills that have become vital in day-to-day work and social life. It is key that everyone, regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, background or skills level, is given the opportunity to learn digital skills and thrive in a digital workforce and society.
