From founding Games Workshop in 1975 and bringing fantasy board game titles such as Dungeons and Dragons and Warhammer to Europe - to becoming President of Eidos Interactive and contributing to blockbuster video game series such as Tomb Raider and Hitman - Ian is one of the most of the most celebrated figures in the industry.
He is joined in conversation by Jude Ower - founder of Playmob - a company looking to use gaming as a force for good, by building charity and education plots into some of our favourite gaming titles.
