He has experience in remote ethnography, trends forecasting, conference and workshop curation, and agile delivery in a startup environment.

This week in Stockholm, Readie brought together 19 policymakers and industry experts from across Europe for a special two-day event that focused on digital skills and the future of work. With this topic high on the agenda of governments across Europe, participants shared their goals and challenges, compared their approaches, and examined the key elements for the success of interventions and programmes.
