What are you up to?
This is a new feature dedicated to showcasing what some of you readers are up to. Get in touch to get some airtime around what you are up to.
Nobody took the opportunity to tell us about any interesting projects, job moves, research or other activities.
This is your space to tell the Conversational AI world what’s new and exciting with you, so please let me know by DM or email.
Closing notes
I promised myself that I am going to start using TikTok more, so started posting up daily on there. I’m really interested in what creates engagement and what totally bombs. So far it’s a mixed bag. Any tips, as my teenage nieces seem to just ‘get it’, while I’m starting to feel old!
I’m hoping that this newsletter keeps building and improving with every issue. Let me know your thoughts, feedback and ideas of what you want to see by DM on LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or even TikTok (not that I have worked that one out yet!).
