VIDEOS: WonkComms 1 year on – 2 steps forward, 1 step back

Last Friday (2nd May, 2014) we had a birthday party!

But before that we had an event, where is all started for us, at the ODI.

We looked back and celebrated. But we also looked forward and wondered… what if?

We’ll be posting videos of the event soon but in the meantime, catch up with pics and slides from our speakers:

      Oh, and why are the presentations by Greenpeace and Change.org a step back? It is not clear from the slides.

      • Nick Scott says:

        In a fictional race between the wonkcomms world and the rest of the world, we’ve moved forward but others have also moved forward – pushing us back. Come to think of it, not sure it is quite right. Oh well, we’ve gone and run an event on that title now, a bit late to change…
