Co-Founder, 3G Doctor
David studied medicine just 600m away from the Digital Catapult Centre at UCL, and has experience working with wearable medical sensors going back 30 years. In 2006 together with GP colleagues he cofounded 3G Doctor, a service providing fully documented mobile video consultations with registered doctors. We live in a time where information and connectivity are available in abundance thanks to the little connected supercomputers we all have in our pockets, but we still access the advice of doctors via rushed, unprepared and undocumented visits to their offices. David’s work is focused on how mobile technologies enable medicine to evolve by reducing barriers to care, collapsing time & space and increasing access to quality advice. Interact with David on Twitter @mHealth.

Felix then founded medDigital, a digital technology company, with Paul Gardner to focus on revolutionising healthcare with digital communications. Felix says “It has been hard work but worth it, especially now that people really understand that the arrival of digital health has changed the future of medicine.”
Managing Director, Zedsen
Daniel co-founded his first business Honeywell & Partners at the age of 24, shortly after graduating from the University of Leeds with a Joint Honours Degree in Mandarin and Business. This productised consultancy helped leading organisations across the world to create and implement their strategies; through goal management, storytelling, and innovative planning materials that are accessible, compelling, fun and powerful. Daniel built the company from ideation to successful commercialisation, including leading a team of software engineers to produce a world-class strategic implementation tool. The resulting programme, “Route to Greatness” became a successful company in its own right, delivered through a very select group of world-class business-consulting firms based in the UK, USA, Switzerland and Austria.
This led Daniel to his third and most exciting adventure as Managing Director at Zedsen; an intelligent 3D sensing surface that uses a flexible membrane-based sensor and advanced algorithms, allowing for detailed analysis and recognition of objects that are placed on, or next to the sensor. This allows for some truly disruptive features in the medical, security, automotive and robotics industries; with applications including a mail scanning device, tumor detecting garments, and blood monitoring wearables.
