The Organisers

Claire Scantlebury and Neil Cocker organise TEDxCardiffTEDxCardiff is a not-for-Profit event organised by Claire Scantlebury and Neil Cocker.

Claire likes to get involved in innovative and exciting things.  As well as being Innovations Project Coordinator for The BBI Group, Claire is also co-founder of Cardiff Web Scene, and co-organiser of TEDxCardiff with Neil.

Claire is passionate about providing opportunities for people to get together to talk about cool and interesting ideas which later lead on to brilliant projects.  This is why, through working with Neil, Cardiff became the first UK city to hold an Ignite event.

Claire’s background in digital has led her to develop a strong interest in innovation, technology and design.  She is an advocate of sustainable living (and now an expect in urban chicken keeping!).  You can follow her on @Claire_S or check out her blog. You can also watch Claire’s talk on Branding at Ignite Bristol.

Neil does too much. He is MD of Dizzyjam, a creative industries consultant and runs Ignite Cardiff and TEDxCardiff with Claire.

After running a successful record label for many years, DJing across 30+ countries, and A&Ring a top ten hit he decided he was getting too old for the music industry and now fills his days with the above, and is training for a triathlon.

Neil is passionate about startup culture, and what happens when you put lots of creative people in a room and feed them inspiration (and booze)… You can follow him on Twitter at @neilcocker & find out more on his website here.
