The Audi Innovation Talks was a daily programme of conversations with experts exploring the future potential of technology and innovation.

Following a career in luxury, Jonathan Chippindale co-founded Holition a decade ago as a venture start-up to explore and expand the ever-evolving role that technology plays in communicating narrative to today's consumer. The result is a synthesis of mathematicians, scientists and technologists, artists and psychologists, retail specialists and cutting edge leaders in innovative thinking. Holition crafts premium digital experiences for a network of pioneering brands across the luxury, fashion and beauty industries. Jonathan is a Visiting Professor and External Industry Advisor at Central St Martins and the London College of Fashion. He is a mentor to BBC Worldwide Labs and Techstars, as well as advisor to the University of Cambridge Digital Compass Group. Jonathan is also a Digital Advisor to the British Fashion Council and Innovation Advisor to the Tate series of museums. Jonathan holds an Honorary Doctorate from University of Arts London.
