We always seek advice from people with the experience. And who can be more experienced than an industry veteran with 25 years in gamedev. This time we asked Tony Watkins, General Director of EA Games Russia to join you at DevGAMM in Minsk to finish the first day of the event with a pinch of wisdom!
His session Rocking The Future explores how choices we make on our career paths can influence the direction we take and the speed of career development. He will identify some tools to help guide those choices – some do’s/ and dont’s. All presented through the lens and experience of Tony Watkins and his many experiences in Games Industry and FMCG both in the UK and Russia.
Tony Watkins has vast experience centred around strategic development of businesses & brands with some creative input/ talent to support this – including Lavazza Coffee, Tetley, Red Bull, Russian Standard Vodka and Dirol to name a few.
Over the past nine years this has been focused on building a team and successfully developing business for EA on the Russian market – particularly focused on driving digital sales as well as packaged goods direct to key Russian Retailers.
In addition Tony performs in Russia and Europe with his own rock band ‘The Smokebreakers’, has recorded six albums of original songs and in 2000 released his first book ‘Loves Roads’.
