Creating systemic, sustainable solutions to intractable problems like GB transitioning to Clean Energy requires cross-sector collaboration in the public, private, academic and third sectors. It also requires the creation, sharing and use of geospatial data combined with other data, often in near real-time, to support cross sector decision making that improves efficiencies, reduces cost and benefits consumers. Application Programming Interfaces (API’s) enable data to be readily accessed and combined with other required data sources to support those decisions.  Join members from Ordnance Survey's technical team and Geovation (more info below) for a two-part event that focuses on Clean Energy. (You can join us for Part 1; Part 2, or both!) Part 1 Technical Workshop – OS API’s; OS data and Clean Energy From 4pm, we’ll be hosting a 2-hour technical workshop focusing on an “Introduction to API’s”. The sessions will teach you how to access and use API’s, including the OS Maps and OS Places API, along with other data sources, to provide analysis and insight into the "Clean Energy" opportunity. Who is the workshop for, and what will you learn? Whilst this is a technical workshop, the materials have been designed to be self-led i.e. we provide a step-by-step guide, to help you complete the exercise. This means we can cater for many levels of competency. There will be additional ‘stretch’ exercises for those that complete the self-led exercises quickly, and help on hand from OS’s technical team for those that need support! The workshop will teach you how to access and use OS Maps and OS Places API’s, before we use additional geospatial datasets (OS MasterMap Topography, height and Imagery data) within an open source software application, to perform some analysis around "Clean Energy". We’ll provide the venue, WiFi and drinks – but you’ll need to bring your own (fully charged) device to participate in the session. Part 2 Meetup: Clean EnergyTech Accelerator Directly after the workshop, from 6:30pm, Geovation (Ordnance Survey’s open innovation network, accelerator and awarding winning Hub) will be hosting a 2-hour Clean EnergyTech Meetup where we’ll have presentations from Public, Private and 3rd Sector organisations – followed by discussion and networking, around the Clean Energy theme. Food and Drinks to be provided. Outline Agenda Part 1 4pm – 4:30pm: Presentations, setting the scene etc 4:30pm – 6pm: Self-led tutorial Part 2 6:30pm – 7pm: Registration and networking 7pm – 8pm: x 5 lightning talks on Clean Energy 8pm – 8:30pm: Networking & Close   More on Geovation and Clean EnergyTech: As an initiative of Ordnance Survey now in its tenth year of existence, Geovation is backed by years of industry experience and a network that reaches far and wide. Geovation runs Accelerator programmes to help location-data (GeoTech) and PropTech start-ups launch and grow. A multi-disciplinary team of 15, support start-ups and a growing community of more than 1,500 entrepreneurs and innovators at a dedicated innovation Hub in Clerkenwell, London; through partnerships with complimentary innovation Hubs in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff and Manchester; and most recently, Edinburgh. Geovation is now developing a Clean EnergyTech Accelerator, working together with Pineapple Partnerships (a B Corp specialising in capturing energy market place insights) to identify suitable, cross-sector collaborators in the public, private, academic and third sectors, who can support the process with time, money and resources for mutually beneficial outcomes.  The Accelerator is underpinned by Geovation and Pineapple’s focus on purposeful business ensuring that all innovation has a positive impact on the social and environmental benefits below and can be measured as a net positive contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:   the ability for organisations to have access to decent work and economic growth potential;  access to affordable, clean and reliable energy;   positive advancement of industry, innovation and infrastructure;   helping to create sustainable cities and communities;  helping to address climate change.   The Accelerator will prioritise geospatial innovation that supports the changes in flexibility and demand side sustainable energy management required for a whole systems approach, around the following themes:  Accelerating energy transition and decarbonisation in line with the National Infrastructure Plan, Clean Growth strategy and Climate Change Act.  Joining up and decentralising the system from generation, transmission and distribution whilst maximising consumer benefit and wellbeing.  Opening up the system between electricity, heat and transport sectors.  Enabling digitalisation with real-time and smart data solutions to support the flexibility required in developing smart grids, buildings and transport.  Enabling efficient local area energy planning as a solution for deregulation, through coordinating building regulations and standards, energy network and spatial planning.  Timeline: We aim to launch the Geovation Clean EnergyTech Accelerator in Autumn, 2019. More on OS: Ordnance Survey (OS) is the national mapping agency for Great Britain, and a world-leading geospatial data and technology organisation. As a trusted partner to government, business and citizens across Britain and the world, OS expertise and data helps customers in energy, utilities, property, retail and finance deliver efficient services.

Please see the details at the very bottom of the page for further details. Our Amazing Speakers That You Can't Afford To Miss! Keynote speaker: Professor Carolyn Mair PhD, Fashion Psychologist - “The Future of Fashion: changes and challenges” The fashion industry is an important global economy. It touches everyone; as global employer of millions and as designer, producer and retailer of the clothes everyone wears. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly aware of the value of understanding the behaviour of its employees, customers and additional stakeholders. In addition, the industry is under increasing pressure to meet its social responsibilities. There has never been a more important time to bring these two disciplines together. While psychologists can contribute to solving many of the fashion industry’s pressing problems, in this talk, Professor Mair will discuss the relationship between what we wear and our well-being. Other speakers: Tara Button, Founder & CEO of BuyMeOnce - “A Life Less Throwaway” Tara Button describes herself as someone who was an impulse shopper drowning in clutter and fast fashion. In 2013 Tara went from depressed spendthrift to fulfilled and calm entrepreneur using a technique she calls ‘mindful curation’ and now lives a “life less throwaway’. She will be talking to us about how this can save money, sanity and the planet, and how empowering people to find their own style can help. Polly Holman, Lecturer, London College of Fashion - “Are Algorithms, Ai and Avatars the Future of Styling?” 30 years ago Image Consultants and Fashion Magazines were the prime sources for people wanting style advice. Since then the global spread of the Internet and the rise of Social Media has given us new style advisors; the blogger, vlogger and influencer.  Today an even more powerful new source is entering the styling market. The session will look at how Algorithms, AI and Avatars are being integrated by retail in order to supply styling solutions to their customers. It will also look at the way AI is being used by the founders of new internet platforms to provide services from UHNW clients to teenagers on a budget. The session will conclude with the opportunities new technology has for members. Azrene Ahmad, Director and Master Trainer of Imago, Malaysia - “The Rise of Modest Dressing” With the fast evolution of the fashion industry comes a whole new niche, that of modest dressing. This session will explore the driving force behind the evolution since it is not only the religious who are gravitating towards the need but also people from all walks of life, faiths, cultures and paths. Find out what this means for image consultants and how they can make the relevant changes to include addressing this need in their current fashion and style services, especially in the area of the hijab which is an opportunity that is infrequently tapped into. Eva May Pearson, Healing Image HI - “How Image Professionals can help survivors of abuse” Eva May Pearson is a 53 year old wife and mother and founder of “Healing Image Hi”. A survivor of historic abuse from an early age, Eva May tells her story of how working with Image Professionals has impacted so positively on her life, following a complete break-down in the aftermath of a Police investigation left her unable to touch her skin, look at herself or leave her home for 4 years. Through Healing Image HI, Eva May provides an open and honest account through her journey as she sought help with her image. The negative and positive impacts on her life today; five years on. After thirty years of therapy, Eva May discusses why and how her image had become so important to her. Through Healing Image Hi, as Founder, Eva May would like to raise awareness within the industry that they can help people living with trauma and mental health issues and is interested in developing a directory of accessible resources. This is Eva May’s first speech since developing her website “Healing Image HI” and she is looking forward to the sharing of questions and ideas. Plus our carefully curated conference sponsors and exhibitors, currently including Brasense and Colours by Ell.

Be part of the Great Britain Tag Rugby 2021 Vision. Try Tag Rugby is inviting all players with a vision of being part of the 2021 World Cup the opportunity to join us at Great Britain Trials. The objective of the Trials is two-fold: Be recognised, make sure the coaches are aware of your long-term vision, put yourself on the map and work with the GB Management Team to be best placed for consideration in 2021. The British & Irish Cup squads will be chosen from players who attend one of the trials. The British & Irish Cup will take place on Saturday 7th September 2019. Note, this selection does not exclude any player from the broader GB 2021 Player Development Pool. We are excited to share the vision of Great Britain Tag Rugby. Representing Great Britain is a huge honour and as we have proven, one that is capable of winning World Cup medals.  With such honour and reward, of course comes a huge amount of commitment, dedication and desire on the part of every player and the coaching teams. The vision is very clear.  Great Britain Tag Rugby is focusing on building and fielding the most competitive squads in time for the 2021 Tag World Cup in Ireland. Along the way, we will be hosting and no doubt visiting Ireland to compete in the 2019 and 2020 British & Irish Cups. Selection for the World Cup GB Team will be developed over the coming two years and is not restricted to the teams being selected for the B&I Cup 2019. It is for this reason that Great Britain & Ireland have decreased the age categories for the 2019 & 2020 B&I Cups so we can genuinely grow a significant pool of players in each category creating depth and breadth across the development squads for 2021. Try Tag Rugby will be appointing a Great Britain Coaching Team to build and deliver on this 2021 vision which will include their attendance at specific events as well as trials and visiting leagues across the country to ensure no talent is untapped. Key dates for your diary: 2nd JuneGB Trials 1 - This will be the first round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 8th JuneTagFest London - The biggest event Try Tag Rugby will ever have hosted, with unlimited capacity for team and individual entry.  Coaches & Scouts will expect to see you there. 23rd JuneGB Trials 2 - This will be the second round of trials, players to be considered for B&I 2019 and beyond will be expected to attend 1 of the 2 trials 26th JuneB&I 2019 Squads to be announced 7th SeptemberBritish & Irish Cup PLAYER ELIGIBILITY To be eligible to play for Great Britain you need to meet the following criteria: • Be British born or have residency of three consecutive years or more in Great Britain • OR hold a British passport • Be a fully registered Try Tag Rugby player (or equivalent registered player with another ITF member such as the Irish Tag Rugby Association) who has participated in at least one full league season during 2019 • Not played for another full ITF member nation within the last one year • Be available to travel to Ireland in 2021 • Great Britain representatives are ambassadors. Hence you must be an outstanding member of the Tag community who will uphold the ethos of Try Tag Rugby and represent Great Britain in a manner befitting to the UK Tag community. Any player who has received a suspension from Try Tag Rugby for any on field or off field incident since the beginning of 2018 is not eligible to play for Great Britain. GB DIVISIONS Categories have been selected but are not limited to those we are considering for the World Cup 2021. Age brackets have been adapted with a view to building depth in squads over the next 2 years and to enable players to play with each other over the coming years in preparation for 2021.  e.g. Womens Seniors in 2021 will become 30+.  For 2019, this will be 28+. 2020 will be 29+ and so on so that players by 2021 are of the correct age and will have played together for 2 years. For all categories, players can turn of age at any time that year. - Mixed Open - Men’s Open - Women's Open - Mixed Seniors (Men 31+, Women 28+) - Men’s Seniors (28+) - Women's Seniors (28+) Register your attendance to Trials and get yourselves signed up to the relevant tournaments on the Try Tag Rugby Event Page - Any questions, please email [email protected] We look forward to sharing more information over the course of the year including location - which will be within London.
