Ben will be talking on the future of corporate communication with Virtual and Augmented reality, exploring possible uses, case studies of existing work and helping paint a picture of what the future will look like when we all have this technology at our fingertips. The internet changed the way we communicate, will VR and AR do the same? Ben thinks so, and he's excited and a little scared about what that looks like in a corporate environment.
