Our head of digital goes head to head with top UK creative tech heads at The second monthly Techoff
Shine’s head of digital, Vincent Haywood was invited to take part in the Techoff (www.thetechoff.com) last week. 6 competitors had five minutes each to wow a crowd with all things tech, marketing, data and any other geeky subject they wanted.
Speaking about how all the new integrated home devices are going to open up a whole new world of targeting and programmatic events across media and notable Social Media, Vincent was voted the winner and temporary owner of the Title belt.
The night itself was extremely interesting and provided lots of inspiration for future campaigns, plus great networking. Make sure you register for the next event (where you can watch our current champion reluctantly give up the belt to the next winner).
