Steve Jobs is perhaps one of the greatest examples of the effect and influence one determined visionary can have, not just within an industry, but on the whole of society.
With that in mind, the upcoming Power of One conference in London takes a slightly different slant to your typical tech conference, focusing on getting developers and entrepreneurs together to celebrate how much the individual can achieve in today’s tech industry.
The 1-day conference, constituting part of Internet Week Europe and taking place on Friday November 11 2011, is being held in the iconic Battersea Power Station, and is designed to motivate and inspire developers and entrepreneurs with the aid of some quality speakers and two panel sessions. The event will look back at past experiences and glance forward to what the future may hold for us.
The Next Web is teaming up with the event organizers to give some ticket discounts too, but before we get to that, here’s 5 reasons why you should attend the Power of One conference.
1. The Speakers
There’s a pretty impressive array of speakers lined up at the Power of One conference from around the world, including Jason Calacanis, Morten Lund and David McCandless to name but a few. Learn from the best in the business.
2. Battersea Power Station
You will also be one of the last people to set foot inside the iconic Battersea Power Station before it closes for long-term redevelopment. It really is an amazing venue.
3. Eat, drink and be merry
Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served, not to mention a steady supply of caffeinated beverages throughout the day.
4. Party time
The conference is being held on a Friday, which means you are free to let your hair down after the event. The organizers are throwing a big post-conference party, with free beer, allowing you to mingle with the speakers and delegates.
5. Free stuff
All attendees will receive a free gift-bag on arrival, containing lots of swag for you to take home with you.
