Betazones are immersive talks where researchers, academics, designers and explorers share their story and visions for the future, brought to life on a huge LED screen. The talks are part of the official programme of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meetings in Davos, Switzerland. The 2018 edition featured: Steven Pinker, Yuval Harari, Christine Lagarde, Trevor Paglen, Linda Spilker, Mary Flanagan and Paula Kahumbu.
I help speakers develop the storyline for their talks and design visuals for their presentations as well as animated backdrops. I also art direct other designers and coordinate the work of technical staff on-site to ensure the sessions run smoothly. In addition, I run storytelling workshops within the organization to help colleagues brief speakers and moderators in the run-up to the events.
