LJ Rich Andy Lane

Fee Band


The Click presenter is a self-confessed ‘cool hunter’ and hackathon fan. She’s also a concert pianist and composer and often mixes the two in presentations. LJ looks to the future user experience, from location based tech to mixed reality and the ‘tactile internet.’ We will soon be able to feel turbulence when flying a drone, and have offers pop up in front of our eyes. But how much will we want to tell our devices, and how much should our social currency be worth?
