Speaker: GMIT – Galway Mayo Institute of Technology – Feb. 22, 2012


On February 22nd, 2012 I was invited to speak to a body of students at the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology in Galway, Ireland.  It was an incredible opportunity.  The conversation took place over an hour and a half period, was conducted in a loose manner with questions and answers throughout.  The core subject matter and title of my talk was:

Getting in the Gaming Industry: Knowing the Customer

My sponsor and great friend was Damien Costello, from GMIT:

Feedback on the event has been positive:

Hi Jason,

Just a quick note of thanks for yesterday’s talk.  I was waiting to get some feedback from the students before I emailed.  They were very impressed with the talk and remarked on your enthusiasm for the industry as a whole and for Bioware as a company.  I was talking to the 2nd 3rd and 4th year Software Dev students and they took a lot from what you said about breaking into the industry.

They all told me the same thing – bring in as many people as I can to give talks. 

Anyway, talk soon and many thanks
