With an exciting line-up of speakers, live panel events, interactive workshops, webinars and a host of competitions and prizes to give away, this is a festival not to be missed!
Day One: Focusing on the variety of different routes that exist to get into the tech sector and aiming to inspire individuals who are looking to get started in tech. These sessions specifically highlight the opportunities that exist within the Oxfordshire Tech sector to push toward creating local ecosystems of tech exchange. Within this first day we aim to link up businesses, higher education, colleges and schools, developing an exchange of information and opportunities to further expand the tech pipeline and improve diversity within the sector.
Day Two: Bringing together leaders in Oxfordshire Tech and individuals working within the sector who want to expand their network and learn about best practices. Key topics include the importance of having a diverse workforce, discussing how to manage culture virtually in the new world of hybrid working and deep dives into developing strategic partnerships. Alongside this, there will be a showcase of Oxfordshire tech businesses, an award presentation to the winner of the Tech for Good Start-Up award and integrated networking platforms to allow new connections to be made.
