  • INSIGHT AT THE IVY: WITH SIR MARTYN LEWIS AND SOL ROGERSMONDAY, 23 SEPTEMBER

    Panel discussion
    6.30pm for 7pm start – ends 8pm
    The Loft


    Hear from Sir Martyn Lewis and Sol Rogers on the challenges and opportunities technology is creating for education and enterprise.


    Solomon Rogers, CEO and founder of award-winning immersive content studio REWIND, and broadcaster and founder of Your Big Day, Sir Martyn Lewis, host another discussion, this time around how technology is changing education and shaping the future of work.

    Imagine the office and classroom ten years from now. Thanks to fast-evolving technologies, they will be very different places.  Emerging technologies are changing the nature of learning and work, the dynamics in the workforce, the education system, and the notion of what the office and classroom are. The work and learning experience has to be re-thought to incorporate these innovations effectively and strategically.

    Sol Rogers' company REWIND uses new technologies to deliver immersive (VR/AR/MR) solutions for the world’s largest companies and brands. Sol is also the Chairman of the BAFTA Immersive Entertainment Advisory Group and the Chairman of Immerse UK, the first nation-wide network for immersive companies. Prior to founding REWIND, Sol spent 15 years as a senior university lecturer in digital animation, VFX and emerging technology, teaching over 1,300 students, writing four degrees, two masters and supervising PHDs during his tenure.

    Across three decades as a television journalist, Martyn Lewis anchored every mainstream national television news programme on ITV & BBC. He now works extensively in the voluntary sector. A recent chairman of NCVO and director of IPSO, he is currently Chairman of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. He recently founded YourBigDay Ltd, offering video “time-capsules” for every date and almost every year over the last century, drawn from the Reuters and ITN archives, and ordered and delivered online (yourbigday.tv).


    Martyn was awarded a CBE in 1997 and a knighthood in 2016 for services to the voluntary sector.
