GTA TechTalk Show: women in tech

Sarah Luxford and Tamsin Anastasi-Pace join us for a discussion around women in tech The wind is howling, the cold is biting, and shops are blaring Christmas music out of their speakers…in mid-November. There are many forces at play that will make you want to elope back to your duvet covers on this miserable Monday, but don’t. We’ve got something that will get your brain juices flowing with debate and discussion; it’s the last (for now) of four GTA TechTalk Show podcasts in partnership...

When nature knows best

Erin Platts from SVB is joined by Animal Dynamics founder Alex Caccia We read an article last week that said reading your phone in bed can badly damage your mental health… so we suggest something a little different – download this podcast and listen to another fantastic TechTalk Podcast like it’s an interesting lullaby. The only problem is that it’ll be too interesting and you won’t fall asleep… oh well. As this show gets aired on a Thursday, we thought we’d try a little throwback… with a...


Proper prop tech

James Dearsley of TLA PropTech & The Digital Marketing Bureau is joined by Jon Scott of TLC This is the last TechTalk podcast that you’ll get to enjoy while you’re deleting all of those horrible spammy emails (hopefully)… with the GDPR deadline set for tomorrow, it will be interesting to see how our inboxes start looking. To be fair, the inboxes of both Paul and Sue are usually a little bit colourful after recording these shows, but they promised to be on their best behaviour for this...


Teaching an old dog new tricks

This week we welcome Anthony Parker from Cuberoot64 and Sebastien Conran from Consequential Robotics. Are you ready for a Royal Wedding? While bride-to-be Meghan Markle is no stranger to TV screens, Prince Harry may be a little less comfortable at having his wedding day broadcast to the world. However, we hear that TechTalk is his favourite podcast and he’ll be listening on the morning of the big day to calm his nerves. Well, Harry, we have just the show for you. One would imagine that...


Avoid a computer catastrophe

Apparently, this week marks the 40 anniversary of the first-ever spam mail being sent…will GDPR mark the end of this? No more curious sexual remedies, no more $100 billion waiting for us in a Nigerian bank account – what will we do? Clearly for some companies, GDPR could be a bit of a nightmare. However, refreshingly, we had IT expert, Perry Ashby, on the show who explained that, for most, the new rules won’t be as jarring as they sound. Perry founded Urban Network and, as well as running...


Buzzing around the London tech scene

As well as catching up on the TLA event with Russ Shaw, we chat with Joao Fernandes of BuzzStreets and Adi Gaskell. We were at the TLA 5 birthday event a few weeks ago, hosted by Russ Shaw (who features as presenter in this episode), and we were wowed by the little delivery robots which are disrupting the food industry. Well, it’s happening sooner than expected as it was announced this week that 1,000 of them will be hitting UK streets soon. It wasn’t the only dazzling thing at the event...


Start-ups: Dead or alive?

In a bit of a start-up special, we welcome Maryam Mazraei from Autopsy and Matt Jonns of Ucreate We, as Producers, didn’t really set-out to do this…but it just so happens that we’ve got a start-up special podcast for you. Our guests this week have lived through the highs and lows of being a start-up and base their current businesses around those trials and tribulations. We hope it’s not the case but the first half of the podcast could scare people away from building a business (both...


Keeping Albert safe in the city

Jillian Kowalchuk talks about her app, Safe and The City, while Ivo Weevers talks us through Albert. Feeling hot, hot, hot…the mercury is finally rising and it’s giving us those happy vibes. Don’t bother booking a summer holiday just yet, there’s plenty of quality tech happening here in the UK. London has a number of different sun traps to discover in beautiful weather like this, but if you’ve followed the news recently you’ll know that it’s not always the safest city. Our first guest...


Saving Bletchley Park

Dr Sue Black explains how she helped to save Bletchley Park, Philip Sheppard discusses music and Jo Davies talks branding with VIM Group Mark Zuckerberg sat in a booster chair during a five-hour Facebook grilling, YouTube had its highest-viewed video of all time deleted and Trump probably upset people on Social Media – a week in the world of tech…thankfully we’ve got another brilliant TechTalk podcast to keep you sane. We’re excited about this one. Our first guest this week is arguably...


Building up and buffering down

Hussain Hilli talks Byoot and Anthony Impey introduces Optimity Word on the street this week is that Apple’s next iPhone won’t even need to be touched – because using your thumb is far too much exercise in 2018... We’re on-board with it all though, as long as it can read your mind and stream TechTalk at all hours of the day. Rivalling Apple for their innovation is our first guest on this week’s podcast, Hussain Hilli. He’s a bit of a star in the tech world. He has been named in the...


Finding the right fit

Tom Adeyoola talks Metail while Grant Dudson & Luca Amaduzzi introduce us to Cycl When it rains, it pours, and things continue to pour down on Facebook. By contrast, we’ll be basking in the Easter sunshine (hopefully, but probably not) with another great hour of TechTalk. Four days off work…yes please. Our first guest on this week’s show introduced a topic which we haven’t really talked about before…clothes. Ever find yourself giving the postie a backache by ordering bag after bag of...


Losing expenses, building muscles

Innovation aplenty with Andrea Zitna's Elvie product and Emma Maslen's expenses revolution with SAP Concur. The folk at Facebook have taken a bit of a beating this week – they’ve been a bit naughty and Mark Zuckerberg’s earnings have taken a multi-billion-dollar hit. While we probably don’t need to set up a JustGiving page for him, the American innovator might be relieved to find that his favourite podcast is back with another episode and is entirety free to stream and...


Robots learn how to get arty

Bernadine Brocker from Vastari, Mostafa El Sayed from Automata Technologies and James Gupta from Synap. New Zealand are winning the race for pilotless air taxis with their release this week, but we still think the UK is flying highest in the world of technology. We had three guests this week to help us get off the ground. Even Russ Shaw, from the USA, believes that the British Isles – and London in particular – are the right places to be in this tech revolution. That’s why he created the...


Tip top techy treats

Tim Sadler talks Tessian, David Raine explains EveryLife Technologies and Ian Napier tells us why we should use Switchee We’re too good to you guys. Yeah, we always have the best techy guests on our podcast, but we’ve gone above and beyond this time around. All of this week’s guests are metaphorical life savers in one way or another. Our first gift comes in the form of Tim Sadler and his company, Tessian. Have you ever sent a private email to the wrong person? Of course you have. These...


Recharge, don't flat line

Dan Bladden introuduces the future of mobile charging with Chargifi & Alastair Barrow talks us through Haptics in the medical world with Generic Robotics How many techies does it take to figure out a solution to keep Britain’s public transport moving when it starts snowing? Evidently not enough. We only had to hike through the blizzards, whilst getting frostbite, to bring you this podcast. Thank us later. Our snowy trek left us pretty short of juice on our phone; no adventure would...


Virtually Building the Future of Tech

We like a bit of consistency; user updates are still offending Snapchat users and TechTalk still has fantastic guests to chat to each week – this week is no exception and Russ Shaw was back in the presenting chair for this one. Now, our researchers back at TechTalk HQ usually give our guests a quick scout before we start recording, but, to chart our first guest’s professional experience it would take weeks and weeks to get it all down on paper. Jacqueline de Rojas is the President of Tech...


Combatting gender discrimination

Sally Durcan and Mehran Zadeh of Talk to Mums are joined by Jana Hlistova We love a bit of controversy on the TechTalk Show, although we tend to call it ‘fierce debate’, and this week’s show doesn’t fail to disappoint as we tackle some very difficult subjects. First of all, we were delighted to meet Sally Durcan from Talk to Mums. She has developed a fantastic platform which allows busy mums to share valuable thoughts and opinions on a range of products, which also allows them to...
