So from start to finish, how do you keep people motivated? DeMarle will share personal insights and takeaways from 10 years of writing Deus Ex.
  • Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir – FIFA Senior Producer, Electronic Arts. Ingvarsdottir will be speaking on “Realizing the Full Potential” and how ensuring diversity and inclusion of both creative teams and the cast and content of entertainment franchises isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s right for your game and for your business.
