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.

Develop is a really great way to network, it’s also great for going to talks and finding that little tip that you didn’t know before and thinking – oh I’ll bring that back to the team!
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.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
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!
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.

It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
Jo Twist, OBE
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
