The Thinking Digital conference is returning to Sage Gateshead next month, bringing together a host of speakers, tech enthusiasts and entrepreneurs who are 'curious about technology, ideas and our future'.

The conference is approaching it's ninth year, and has gained a reputation for assembling an impressive selection of speakers from all over the world. Thinking Digital 2016 also includes workshops, networking opportunities and a startup competition - as well as the selection of talks from the technological heavyweights.


This year's speakers include Google innovator Joe Faith, computer security and cryptography expert Sarah Meiklejoh and Channel 4 director MT Rainey. The North East is also well represented by Darren Jobling, the CEO of Zerolight in Gateshead, and Will Dracup, the CEO of Biogsignatures in Newcastle.

The workshops held on the first day include 'Be the hero of your own life', a workshop on positively influencing those around you, 'Sharing the air', a session discussing workshops and meetings in the workplace, and 'Arts unusual collaborations', a seminar on incorporating technology into the creative arts.

Ten startups will also be competing to win the fifth annual 'Thinking Digital Start Up Competition', where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to a judging panel for a chance at, 'fame, glory and prizes'.

Herb Kim, the CEO of Thinking Digital says that,'One of the nicest things that has arisen from Thinking Digital is the sense of community. Being surrounded by like-minded, curious and creative and innovative people is actually the reason that so many people return every year.'

Thinking Digital 2016 is at Sage Gateshead on the 10th and 11th May. You can still apply to attend as a volunteer here.

The Transcendit Way

Transcendit understand that when you choose to work with us, whether we're taking care of your IT, app or web development, you're trusting us with part of your business. So whether we're looking after your computers, phone systems or servers we always do things 'the Transcendit way'.

The whole of our team adhere to the same values, beliefs and policies - the principles that were written when Transcendit first formed in 2000. Whether you come to us for cloud services or recovery backup you can be confident that you'll always receive the same excellent service.

The Transcendit way outlines how we do business; following the same straightforward principles with every client and customer, regardless of how big or small they may be.

That means we get to know you and your business. We offer you a friendly, professional and efficient service, and we'll always be honest with you.
We understand that not everybody speaks fluent IT, so we try to explain things in a way that is simple and clear. We always spend as much time as is necessary explaining things to you.
If you need to talk to us about something, no matter how insignificant, we are only ever a phone call away – and we’re never too busy to make you a cup of tea and have a sit down with you in person.
We understand how frustrating it can be when things are late. When we schedule an appointment with you, we are there when you’re expecting us. If something prevents us from getting there, we always call you in advance to let you know.
Sometimes things can go wrong, but we never lie to you or try to cover something up. If things go askew we tell you what’s happened and how we plan to prevent it affecting your business.
We want you to continuously benefit from working with us. We regularly discuss your business and make suggestions for improving systems and processes wherever we can – but we never try to push you into a purchase.
When we quote a fixed price, that's always the amount we charge – you won’t find any nasty surprises on a bill from us. If you are paying by time and materials, we inform you if our approximations could change.
We understand the importance of privacy for your business and your customers. We respect the confidentiality of your data, and we will never pass on your information to third parties.
We appreciate it when you take the time to give us feedback. A system called CustomerSure records our client's responses, so you can trust that our reviews are from real people.
