Project Brave was designed to promote awareness and understanding of mental health within our Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Leamington studios, to show our support for the wellbeing of our team members to create a caring, inclusive culture of support. We chose the name Project Brave because we wanted to be brave and address this sensitive topic openly in our studios for the first time, the name and branding bring positive energy to the topic and attracted team members to join the discussions. We devised a strategy around four pillars: Safety: Ensuring the safety of our team members and introducing mental health first aiders. Awareness: Raising awareness of mental health through openly talking about it, forming the group and engaging with national initiatives such as World Mental Health Day. Prevention: training covering self-care, CALM app discount, books and resources for our studio libraries, a wellbeing allowance for gym and fitness activities Support: access to 24-hour confidential support across counselling, legal advice, financial advice and other practical information.

A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
One of the things I like about Develop is it brings people together from across Europe and the whole world. There is a very high level of professionals here, so you have company leaders having drinks with juniors from their community.

I really like Develop, I really like the intimacy of it and I love the location.. there’s a good diversity of talks going on so there hasn’t been a time when there’s nothing I want to see.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.

We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton 2020 - including speaking in the conference, taking a booth in the Expo or becoming a sponsor.Find out more
