Speaker Profile: Ruth Barnett from Swiftkey

SwiftKey has been branded London’s hottest startup so who better to speak at our upcoming dinner on 4th November about growing your online presence than Ruth Barnett, who heads up their Global Comms & Media Coverage. Before joining SwiftKey, Ruth was a political & tech journalist at Sky News and many moons ago, media’s first ‘Twitter Correspondent’.

SwiftKey’s mission is to make it easy for everyone to create and communicate on mobile. It uses AI to understand the context of what you’re writing to accurately predict your next word. The SwiftKey Keyboard has been No 1 on Google Play in more than 58 countries and thanks to strategic partnerships, their technology features on more than 200 million devices worldwide. They recently launched SwiftKey Keyboard for iPhone & iPad, which went to No 1 in the US & UK and hit 1m downloads on its first day. They have won coverage across the mainstream and technology press, including the BBC, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Guardian, Telegraph, TechCrunch, Forbes, Sky News, Stylist, Recode, Engadget – and cult web comic XKCD.

Here’s an interview with Ruth about SwiftKey to give you a little taster:

If you’re interested in growing your online presence and gaining media coverage, you’ll want to book your seat at the table. It’ll be a great chance to meet like-minded people in the startup space and chat with Ruth informally over dinner.
