Find out more about upcoming technologies and build your business!
Wandsworth Digitech are launching a major conference next month. Called Next In Tech, and supported by Wandsworth Council, it aims to give businesses an insight into what will be upcoming technologies. With a pretty starry lineup it deploys people from Microsoft, Linkedin, MetroBank and numerous others.
Soraya Laverty, Co-founder of Wandsworth Digitech says, “The technology industry is moving at an enormous pace. No matter what business sector you are in, your company will revolve around technology that you use.” The conference is going to show businesses what are the trends they have to look out for.
Running from 9 am to 3 pm on Thursday October 5th 2017, and utilising the splendid venue of the Wandsworth Civic Suite in the Town Hall, the organisers expect 100-150 attendees. Laverty feels than any more than that would make the event more impersonal. There will be refreshments, and plenty of opportunities for networking between the scheduled sessions.
Seminars include: Turning adversity into success – From failure to the fastest growing tech services company in the UK by keynote speaker Mike Hockey, Co-Founder of IT services company Roc Technologies.
There will be a wide number of different topics covered, including General Data Protection Regulations, Preparing your Tech Business for Sale, Blockchain and Etherium, AI - The golden age of opportunity and using automation to improve staff engagement, and various panel sessions.
The profits will go to supporting ShareCommunity.co.uk, a Wandsworth-based charity which offers training and employment support for disabled people.
Soraya continues, “This conference will help to demystify tech, we will find out how those tech guys got to where they are, and make life easier for upcoming businesses in the Borough. I'm sure it will be an exciting event and I look forward to seeing people there.”
