Hannah is Communications Director at Failbetter Games, where she has worked since 2014, growing the community around games largely based in the Fallen London universe. She is also responsible for marketing, advertising, social media and events. Previously she worked on digital projects for Tate, and in the communications teams at NSPCC and Penguin Random House.
Bringing perspectives from across indie, AAA and everything inbetween, Hannah, Stevie and Abbie will discuss the strategies which have helped them form and grow successful, contented communities. We’ll look at the values behind communities, how to enact them in your rules, and how to maintain a welcoming atmosphere as your community reaches maturity.
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.
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.

Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

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!
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’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
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.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
