Speaker(s): 
Kane Kramer
Speaker(s) Title: 
Apple consultant, inventor and British Inventors Society founder

Kramer will share his personal journey of innovation, including the Digital Audio Player that he invented in 1979. Commencing from the place of challenge to creating the conditions for innovation, Kramer will take the audience across disciplines, across four decades, and across thought barriers to offer unique insights on the process of creativity.

Most people think it was Apple, but it was in fact Kramer who first conceived the idea of downloading music, data and video through telephone lines in 1979, when he was 23. His co-inventor was 21, and the pair patented the technology two years later. Together, the two inventors went on to pioneer digital recording and built the world’s first solid-state digital recorder/players.

Kramer was recognized by Apple in 2007 for his inventorship and since has acted as expert consultant. His latest invention is Monicall, a system for making conversations into enforceable and legally binding agreements.

Kramer is also a member of the International Clean Energy Circle and founder of the British Inventors Society, British Invention Show and British Invention of the Year Awards.
