Nick Kirby speaks at Estates Gazette's first Tech Live event for 2019

Posted on 25 March 2019

People-centric cities was the theme of Estates Gazette's first event in their 2019 Tech Live series on 5th March 2019. Nick Kirby joined a panel to consider the technology that is changing our world. 

Debating the issues alongside Miranda Sharp, Director of Innovation for Ordnance Survey and Duncan Walker, Managing Director of Skyports, the group was tasked with considering the "shiny new technologies" that are revolutionising the quality of life for future urban citizens in the UK and beyond. 

Nick Kirby's opening remark dismissed the terminology used and suggested  that "It's not about shiny new tech things but about using what you have more efficiently."  He went on to say that "consumers are driving change" and "want real estate and legal services delivered in the same way they can get their banking services". 

The introduction of drones received considerable interest from the audience, with Duncan Walker of Skyports sharing news of the forthcoming trials that his company will be undertaking for the transportation of medicines. The group went on to consider those cities that were leading the way in terms of tech integration in infrastructure, with Helsinki gaining much praise from the panel.
