GDST Digital Leaders’ Conference
On Monday 9 February our newly formed ‘Digital Leaders’ attended the GDST’s inaugural Digital Leaders’ Conference at South Hampstead High School.
Our task was to design a new technology, plan the financial and marketing strategy and then convince industry leaders that our idea was the most innovative.
The conference was a day packed full of speakers, workshops and industry mentors and culminated in a Dragon’s Den style pitch. Our team consisted of two Year 6 girls, two Year 8 girls and two Sixth Formers - we worked together extremely well, quickly identifying our strengths and deciding on our roles for the task.
We performed brilliantly in the pitch and several other schools thought our idea was extremely innovative. Although we did not win the competition, we all learned a lot about bringing a new product to the market.
