SODA Social is a networking event that brings together some of the brightest digital technology enthusiasts looking to socialise, expand their knowledge and have a jolly old time! Over the course of 2017 we will be covering a broad spectrum of current and future digital trends and current affairs.
What an exceptional event our SODA Social turned out to be at Crypt on the Green. On this occasion, we talked around How to Design at Scale. Our speakers included Jonah Jones a Product Design Manager from Facebook and Brian Flanagan a Global Product Director from Expedia. As always, we provided refreshments and nibbles. Thank you to our attendees and we look forward to seeing you at the next SODA Social!
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Brian has been at Expedia since 2008 leading all e-commerce and product aspects of the Expedia site for Canada and, for 4 years, launching and leading their Latin American sites.
He joined Expedia’s Global Product Organisation and moved to London to lead product initiatives related to maps, geography and reducing the cognitive load that travellers have when planning their trips. Brian’s product management experience spans mobile, banking and marketing all from a customer centric view point.
Jonah has been working in product design since 1999. With a background in design, programming and film, he began his career as a designer in the London startup scene. He then joined Google, where he worked for 8 years in Zurich, Sydney and Mountain View, leading the redesign of Google Maps. He now leads design teams for Facebook in London, working on tools to bring people closer together.
Our Meetups will give you the opportunity to listen and engage with Digital professionals across Design, Tech, and Marketing sectors. If you are a CTO, CEO, Designer, Developer, Project Manager, Marketer etc, then our events will give you a great insight into the latest market trends whilst meeting some really cool people.
