An event to truly explore, learn and develop your knowledge about our digital future.

As a software company that has developed its business using local talent, and benefits from a thriving digital ecosystem, we are pleased to be able to support the event and help position Bath as a place where people and companies can thrive. Our CEO, Chris Butt, commented:

“The world is becoming increasingly competitive and towns, cities and regions are under pressure to showcase their talent and potential. The Bath Digital Festival is part of demonstrating that the digital scene is real and thriving here and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Our Chief Scientific Officer, Dr Boris Altemeyer, will also be attending the festival and discussing some interesting topics in the digital world. All details will be released closer to the date.

Elite Athletes and Local Businesses Test Their Talent at the Bath Sport and Business Awards

Bath is full of talented businesses and athletes making an impact in the community. Cognisess became an event partner for the Bath Business and Sport Awards to champion guests as part of their ‘Discover your Talent’ campaign. This initiative is aimed at uncovering hidden talents and harnessing a person’s potential.

Over fifty attendees from both events played Colour Switch, one of Cognisess’ scientifically backed games. This assesses their response inhibition – which is a person’s ability to stay concentrated on a task without being distracted by their surroundings. This is an important ability for both athletes and business employees. Guests could potentially boost their overall performance by improving their skill level in it.

Cognisess would like to thank the guests of the Bath Sport and Business Awards for their enthusiasm and engagement with their event stand. The guests enjoyed interacting with the product – including Emma Isaac (Bath Sport Awards Coach of the Year 2018), who tweeted that she ‘loved’ Cognisess’ game.

The participants competed to beat the scores elite athletes including: Lloyd Wallace (British Olympic freestyle skier), Adam Mann (Bath City FC player) and Kahn Fotualii  (Bath Rugby player). The top three scores from each award won some exciting prizes.

The stand attracted the attention of Olympic silver medalist Samantha Murray, the world number one wheelchair fencer Piers Gilliver and Bath Rugby players Freddie Burns and Tom Dunn.

The Cognisess’ team really enjoyed both events and would like to congratulate the winners of the awards.
