Google Zeitgeist EMEA 2016

Google's Zeitgeist events are a series of intimate gatherings of top global thinkers and leaders. ZeitgeistMinds is a collection of inspiring videos from these events. 

Our post production team attend the two Google Zeitgeist events every year, one in May is held just outside London and the second in Arizona. It's a fascinating event to attend, with eclectic speakers talking about a wide range of subjects.
