Game Republic will be presenting sessions at Scottish Games Week in November tackling topics including creating networks and ecosystems to support the industry, levelling up to improve diversity in games and a workshop to stimulate creative thinking at 1.30pm and 3.30pm on 3rd November in Glasgow.
Dr Jackie Mulligan, Game Republic is thrilled to be joining the week of events. “I am looking forward to meeting developers from games companies across Scotland and chairing a panel looking at how the industry can increase diversity, particularly encouraging women and under-represented groups into games.”
Jackie’s levelling up panel will include panelists Noirin Carmody, Revolution Software, Kimberley Turner from Double Eleven and Marcia Deakin from Nextgen Skills Academy. The panel will be looking at challenges in investment, careers and opportunities for the sector and considering positive ways companies can improve accessibility and the environment to enhance diversity in the games industry.
Jackie will also be hosting a workshop on creative thinking. This workshop will provide attendees with tips to stimulate creativity within themselves and within their team and company culture based on her own doctoral research in this field.
Jamie Sefton, MD of Game Republic will be on a panel looking at how networks can succeed and the benefits they can bring to economic growth, drawing on his experience of running Game Republic for 20 years. He will be joined by industry speakers from Scotland and the North of England.
