Warner Bros Seattle studio boss to head Brighton conference's business track

The vice president and general manager for Warner Bros trio of Seattle studios is to keynote the business track at the Develop in Brighton conference.

Laura Fryer, who oversees Snowblind, Monolith and Surreal Software, will deliver a talk titled ‘Managing the Mystery’, where she will look at game development as a creative process, and address how to 'support and lead that process within the constraints of business, using real world examples from projects past and present'.

“Like the best games, game development itself can never be mastered, but may be improved upon," offered Fryer. "I think that Develop in Brighton is a wonderful opportunity for us to share and learn from each other and I look forward to participating,”

Fryer, who was named as one of The Hollywood Reporter's ‘Top 12 Most Influential Women in Gaming’ will join numerous other industry opinion formers at the Develop in Brighton Conference, taking place from July 19th to 21st this year.
