Brolly is the tech series you’ve always wanted but never gotten…until now. Raw, open and upfront on the tech and future issues that matter. Each Brolly will be limited to a maximum of 100 people and we tell Santa who doesn't show up so make sure you're good and attend. It's an AMA, safe-space with no ego kinda thing.
WHY BROLLY? The humble umbrella. A bastion of safety against the elements for us Brits, a symbol of defiance in other parts of the world. Rain or shine, it’s the versatile beast that offers sanctuary against various elements that seek to thwart and curtail.There are three types of Brolly:
  • Basic Brolly – one superb speaker, giving the dark secrets of their industry/a topic.
  • Battle Brolly – two opposing views battle for your approval (and final audience vote).
  • B!tch Brolly– a challenging, one-person focused rant with Q&A to change people's mind on a topic.
Complimentary drink on arrival (or until it goes!) courtesy of Fora (co-working for adults!), after which there is a paying bar, oh and surprises on the night. Lots of surprises but the good variety not the being thrown into the back of a van variety.
Rory Sutherland is Vice Chairman of Ogilvy & Mather UK and is an expert on consumer behaviour, trends and the influence of the internet. He supports the need for companies to alter the perspective of clients, bringing about novel perspectives on diverse products.
