        • Announcing the Omniversity


          from MadLab Added 203 3 0

          We’re about to launch an exciting new programme of professional training courses at the MadLab, lead by some of the sharpest minds and most cutting-edge practitioners around. Rather than roll out the same-old, last year’s practice, full-time trainers, we’ve reached out to our network to bring recognised experts in their field to teach hands-on skills in affordable workshops. These aren’t just interchangeable tutors delivering the same courses; these are the people who started the projects they are teaching, who use these skills professionally on a daily basis. We call it the ‘Omniversity‘. It’s about giving you the edge in the skills that will be in demand next year, about insider information in where digital platforms are headed, and connecting you with others developing those skills.
