Wherever you are based, you’ll enjoy two talks on games careers led by Games Careers Week co-founder Rick Gibson and TV presenter Erica Webber which includes speakers from another Games Careers Week co-founder IntoGames, developers from Codemasters, Mediatonic and Triangular Pixels, a BAFTA Young Games Designer finalist, recruiters from Electric Square and Third Kind Games, and one of the co-founders of NextGen Skills Academy, Marcia Deakin.
