Monday 12 December 2022 │ 14:00-15:00 GMT │ Webinar

Following the fantastic response to our September webinar, Making Sense of the Metaverse, we’re back with Making Sense of the Metaverse Webinar: Part Two!

So, what's new in part two? Caroline Boyd, our Head of Research and Strategic Development, will be joined in our latest instalment by three exciting new panellists to continue the conversation about what is arguably the most hype-fuelled disruptive trend since the launch of the internet itself. We’ll bring you fresh and diverse perspectives, from a new lineup of experts, hand-picked by Chief Disruptor to share their observations and experiences of the metaverse so far.

As always you can expect the discussions to be lively and informative with lots of opportunities for Q&A. So, whether you missed us last time or just want to further your understanding of the metaverse and what it means to business and technology leaders, we’d love you to join us. Here is what to expect:
