ShareUp #4 – Etch UK

4th May 2017


As always we appreciate the local support for the event, and our friends at Etch UK were kind enough to provide a relaxed office space with a topped up bar. Without support from agencies like Etch we wouldn’t be able to exist, thank you again!


Ben Joy

Emma gave a great talk on what commitments you can make as part of attending ShareUp. She shared her previous experiences with making achievable commitments and making commitments which may have been overly optimistic. Her advice was great, and her series of tips should be helpful to those seasoned veterans of ShareUp and those who were making an attendance for the first time!

Paul McCaskie

Paul’s talk focused on his previous commitment to start and record a podcast on video game music. He noticed there was a gap in the audio podcasts for a podcast that covered subjects that he is passionate about and what better way to fill the gap than to make his podcast? He gave the audience a breakdown of what he found difficult, how he went about tackling the issue and even gave us a quick play of his podcast.
