Last week we hosted the event ”Changing the Game” starring famous game developer Jon Hare as well as CEO of Berghs Pär Lager and Martin Lindell of Dataspelsbranschen. One lecture and a panel debate later everyone met up for drinks down at the Cannon Fodder-themed bar where the students had arranged for drinks and gaming possibilities.
Dave Sharp, one of the teachers at Futuregames, shared his thoughts about the event:
”The recent event at FutureGames in conjunction with Berghs School of Communication was a fantastic opportunity to mingle with FutureGames students both past and present, and to hear the thoughts of other industry figures like Pär Lager and Martin Lindell. This kind of event represents the perfect opportunity to connect students to the decision makers and to bridge the gap into their target industries. FutureGames and Berghs can only be applauded for their efforts and I look forward to attending more of these events in the future.”
Jon Hare had this to say about his visit to Futuregames Academy:
“It is always a pleasure to talk directly to those people who will be shaping the future of our industry. Berghs is the perfect, professionally focused environment for the FutureGames students to be learning their trade. In my experience as a speaker in various educational institutions across Europe I have yet to come across an atmosphere as positive and industry focus as the one at FutureGames and I am hopeful this will translate itself into a high number of good quality computer games professionals in the years to come.”
Thank you Jon and everyone else who came to the event! We at Futuregames Academy are looking forward to meet all of you at our next one.
