I wanted to thank you, on behalf of Ordnance Survey, for such a fantastic and inspiring session at Guardian Activate this week. Your session really was incredibly interesting and provided a lot of food for thought. The movie that you showed was very cool and the characters that you use in your marketing are really great and tell a very clear and strong story.
