James Hicks - The hardware and software driving live streaming growth

Season #1

In this episode of the Live Streamer Backstage podcast I’m joined by James Hicks.

James is an engineering technologist and creative entrepreneur driven by discovery and focused on purpose. A thought leader, content creator and advocate. I asked him on the show because I think there is a fascinating conversation to be had around the explosion of live streaming in recent years, largely driven by the technology in terms of the software, hardware and platforms that make it all so accessible to the masses.

This of course coupled with the global pandemic forcing businesses to move their operations online, and indeed further driving the technological advances! I can think of no better person to have this conversation with that James give his vast experience of working with and serving individuals and organizations by providing technology insights and consulting services to realise their business objectives. James is extremely well connected and certainly has his finger on the pulse of what is going on in the tech space!
