I’m delighted to announce that this year our annual rapid digital product development event known as (‘4 Days 2 Launch’) will be coming to Wales (where it will be known as ‘Pedwar Diwrnod I Lansio’).
Since 2006 we have disappeared to the English countryside for a week (mostly Dorset, maybe Devon) and rapidly built digital products in teams. These events and the products we’ve built have helped us:
1. Come closer together as a company. It’s the only time our New York and London offices come together en masse;
2. Develop some of our best-known and most popular business ventures;
3. Experiment with new technologies and techniques.
So why Wales, specifically Swansea, this year?

We recently kicked off an exciting new project. It’s a discovery phase with the Open Policy Making team at the Cabinet Office. On their blog, they describe Open Policy Making as: “broadening the range of people we engage with, using the latest analytical techniques, and taking an agile, iterative approach to implementation.”
The brief for Mint: Create an Open Policy Making toolkit to help policymakers use the most up to date methods and tools.
