AKQA’s Founders present “Velocity: The Seven New Laws for a World Gone Digital”

Velocity is a book written by Ajaz Ahmed, Founder and Chairman of AKQA and Stefan Olander, VP of Digital Sport at Nike; and at the AKQA event on Monday of 8th Week there will be a free copy available for every attendee.

The book draws upon the authors’ unique perspectives and experiences to present seven timeless new laws for businesses and individuals in a world that is dominated by rapid change and digital technology.

Written as a fascinating and enjoyable conversation between the authors, Velocity’s up-to-date examples illustrate key lessons, together with insights, ideas and inspiration that individuals and businesses should adopt to thrive.

Velocity shares the vision and values required to succeed with the untold backstories to influential and iconic innovation. Fast paced, useful, provocative and highly motivating, Velocity will arm you with actionable ideas to define your future.


  •  4 Velocity principles: Speed, Direction, Acceleration, Discipline.
  •  7 Laws, including ‘A Smith & Wesson beats four aces’, ‘It’s easier done than said’, ‘Convenient is the enemy of right’ and ‘No good joke survives a committee of six’.
On Monday of 8th week, we are really excited to welcome James Hilton and Ajaz Ahmed, Co-Founders of AKQA, back to Oxford. James and Ajaz are great speakers and love meeting young people. Their passion for their work is infectious and it is actually pretty rare to see them in the same room, so come along and make the most of a great opportunity.
This event is free for Adsoc members and £3 for non-members and it’ll take place at 7:00pm on Monday 26th November. To become a member of Adsoc, also free, register here.
