Here is a taster of what Ben at Delib has to say about 1/3 of The Satori Lab
For the latest in our ‘Digital Heroes’ series, a quick chat with people doing interesting digital work in and around government, I thought it was about time to introduce you to a man who you’re probably already aware of, but haven’t had the chance to hear from directly. Esko is widely known for his innovation drive at Monmouthshire County Council, as part their much lauded transformation over the last couple of years. In recent times he’s left that fine, beautiful County (I grew up there) and setup as The Satori Lab with a number of associates, to carry on the work with other large organisations. That aside, I first met Esko after chatting to him at a few events, and subsequent long form conversations have confirmed my suspicions that he’s a very interesting man indeed. He also shares that other admirable quality – in his company I feel like an illiterate child; poorly read he is not. On that note, we should probably hear from the man himself.
It’s game time.
