Richard has been involved in place-making for the creative and cultural industry for a long time. He provides a fascinating insight into the history of the CIQ Agency and then how that has since morphed into Integreat Plus, a place-making, economic inclusion and social enterprise agency. We also learn about Richard’s involvement in leading many initiatives over the years, including Sheffield Community Networks, the Digital Media Exchange, and more recently the Sheffield Social Enterprise Exchange. In part two of the show, Mel and Chris take you through all the usual gubbins, including the latest news and events in Sheffield’s digital sector. That covers our recent partnership with Spaces, Channel 4 heading to Leeds, Startup Weekend, Y Accelerator and KPMG’s tech businesses competition. So what on earth are you waiting for?
