The HP Influencers Advisers Board

What a blast Cannes was this year! I feel incredibly privileged to be part of HP’s Influencers Advisors Board which has met at the Film Festival for the last two years for four days of brainstorming, tech smoozing, red carpeting and generally being spoiled by the giant that is HP.


Tony Hughes, Miggy Gibbs and Justin Packshaw

HP are one of the principle sponsors of the whole event so we get to have a very lucky insight into it all. All the glitz is great fun and we managed to see the showing of La Vie D’Adele, which went on to win the Palme d’Or – a truly extraordinary film for no other reason than the sublime and brave acting from the two leads which is quite breath-taking.

However for me, the icing on the cake, is hanging out, listening and learning from the other Board members, all of whom bring an amazing spin and insight to the technological table. What a bright, colourful and impressive lot they are.


Yasmin Mills, Callum Best, Melissa Odabash

Thank you to the gorgeous Melissa O’Malley for pulling it all together, to Page, Randall, Irv, Jean-Pierre for opening our eyes as to where this technological revolution is taking us and to the rest of the HP team for helping to make it an inspirational few days. Thanks also to the lovely Yasmin Mills for including me in more of the glamorous Film Festival craziness.

Watch this space as De Roemer is about to do something incredibly exciting with HP …….
