So excited to announce this line up, possibly our best yet!

On 9th July we’re bringing 300 Seconds to the European headquarters of Yammer, in London’s Old Street. Their IT Director, Cheryl Razzell, will open the event before handing over to one of our most exciting and eclectic sets of speakers so far.

They are:

Richard Smith talking about… Being Richard Smith: adventures in mistaken identity on the internet.
An early adopter with a common name, Richard is always the first Richard Smith to sign up for anything, which gives him the username richard.smith@… But unfortunately every other Richard Smith thinks that’s their email, which produces some interesting results.
