Tech for Britain 2016: building a better tomorrow
As the UK’s tech sector continues to grow and flourish, Roar Media explain how you can get involved in Tech for Britain 2016; an exciting event that will explore the UK’s tech landscape.
The tech sector in Britain is booming. It’s transformed the economy and put the UK on the map as a formidable tech nation. Tech has transformed the way businesses operate up and down the country.
The UK’s digital economy has grown at such a significant pace, creating over 1.6m jobs and growing 32% faster than the rest of the economy. The tech sector is giving power to growth in business like never before and offering many more opportunities than previously seen. Traditional businesses have undergone a marked change with much to back this up through brilliant figures uncovered by the recent Tech Nation report. In short, talent is thriving, salaries are increasing and businesses are succeeding.
UK startup Roar Media has identified the need to explore the UK’s tech landscape in thorough detail through hearing from those working in and around the sector leading initiatives. Our breakthrough event, Tech for Britain 2016, will welcome true leaders in the space to offer insight into the ever-expanding space through presentations, panel discussions and debates.
Tech for Britain will welcome the likes of Bruce Daisley, UK Managing Director & European Vice President at Twitter, who has lead Twitter on a transformation journey on our shores. We will also hear from those leading digital technology initiatives in the Government, and a keynote presentation from Mayank Prakash, Director General, Digital Technology at the Department for Work and Pensions, the country’s biggest public services department.
As well as keynotes highlighting UK vision, business transformation, trends and future technologies, the event sheds light to gender diversity, with a session dedicated to women in technology. Presentations, fireside chats and panel discussions will explore the barriers to entry, journeys taken and insights into a hugely popular topic.
The need for such an event is highlighted by the need to ‘get to grips’ with how we can continue this magnificent journey and to understand our booming tech and digital sector better.
