“I’ve always been attracted to the art of the impossible”

Keynote speaker Nigel Gifford has made quite a name for himself. In 2014, he made headlines when he was part of the team behind Facebook Aquila – a solar-powered drone intended to provide internet access to remote places. As the man behind the first ever edible drone, he is sure to make headlines once again, although it is still in the design phase. In the army, Nigel specialized in feeding hostile environments and knew this was problematic and risky. When he was asked to design a drone to deliver food, he thought: “Why not just make it all out of food?”.

As a speaker Nigel Gifford is thought-provoking, educating and inspiring. Nigel will teach you the power of disruptive technologies and how this plays a huge role in human connection, early weather warnings and problem-solving.
