Almost 350 people attended Vision 2016 in May, making this our biggest confrence yet. With 25 talks from leading creatives and innovators, examples of world class VR, a Twitter and Instagram wall which got us trending by midday on the first day and first class catering, this was also our most successful Vision.
We've received some great feedback from speakers and delegates and we'll definitely be returning in 2017.
I've had the privilege of speaking on the world's stages from SXSW to TEDx about creative leadership. Vision, to my delight, was up there with the best of them. Someone asked me if I felt the festival is hiding its light under a bushel. I would say yes without hesitation. Given the cohort of creative thinkers and makers I met, and the incredible dedication that went into putting on a world class festival, I know Vision can be Europe's SXSW, Austin.

Vision offers exactly what its name promises- 20/20 insight into what is happening around us now and in the future of communication. In a world where we increasingly juggle between different, new competencies, I felt its spectrum of speakers and participants can empower with tangible insights or ideas.
I was particularly struck by the tight-knit industry community found in Bristol and how smaller agencies already collaborate with a generosity of spirit. I believe if scale were now added to ambition, then together these agile multi-talented professionals could take on the bigger London shops.

Vision is Smart, Slick, Clever and Creative. I very much enjoyed talking part.
