Firstly, a big thank you to George the event organiser for inviting me to be the keynote, and for putting on such a spectacular event in such a spectacular location.
Sponsored by Atlassian, one of the world’s fastest growing enterprise software “Unicorns,” Clearvisions’ “BBQ in the Clouds 2016” event at London’s prestigious, and often surprising, Kensington Rooftop Gardens was awash with great barbecue food, cocktails and networking opportunities. And flamingos.
