Thinking Digital Conference Volunteers Wanted

Alison Shaw, our Visiting Goldman Professor is looking for a couple of volunteers to attend the Thinking Digital Conference which is taking place next Thursday 17 May.

The details are as follows:

  • Wednesday 16 May:

Afternoon workshop at city centre location, 1pm-5pm Conference Dinner at Piccolino, 6pm – 8pm – dinner included

  • Thursday 17 May:

All day at Sage Gateshead from 7am

Food and drink included

Responsibilities: to help register attendees and guide, advise, answer questions etc.  Need smart phone to register delegates.

  • Thursday 17 May: closing party – food and drinks


Students need to be available for the entire event so I appreciate this will be a long day and falls at a time when students are busy revising. Students who would like to volunteer will have access to amazing speaker inputs, gain great experience of a high profile event and close up involvement in event management.

The opportunity is not paid but taxi transfers provided if needed.


The event briefing is Friday 11 March, 5.00, Tap Bar, opposite Central Station

Please send any expressions of interest directly to

More information on the event can be found on the website.
