The speakers at the event included, Paresh Modi – Group Head of Business Development at Vodafone, Romina Savova – CEO at PensionBee, Oz Alashe MBE – CEO of Cybsafe, James Gibson – Senior Produce Owner at Revolut, Andrew Scott – CEO of The Ascot Group, Suvi Chi – COO at Claimer, and Ann Hiatt – who is a Non-Executive Director at Armadillo.
Amongst the topics discussed at the event were access to finance, diversity and inclusion and finding the talent needed to scale.
Director at Business Leader, Oli Ballard comments: “The event was organised to provide our readers and those that we engage with a full analysis of the challenges facing the tech sector in the UK. We wanted to bring a panel together that covered each stage of the business lifecycle and it was rewarding to receive input from brands like Vodafone, Revolut and PensionBee. The event is timely, considering the Go:Tech Awards are around the corner.”
