The tech sector has witnessed unprecedented growth in recent years and is of increasing significance to the performance of the UK economy. The pace at which the sector continues to expand means that demand for skilled digital workers is outstripping supply – tech companies are confronted with a shortage of talent that now threatens to slow future prosperity.

The primary challenge is to bring more people into tech but with over a third of UK consumers feeling that they lack the digital skills to tackle current realities – we are in need of a fresh approach. Russ and Sarah will discuss the role of both the private and public sectors in helping to upskill and reskill workers, education reform and a robust approach to training that is accessible to everyone in society.

Russ Shaw, founder of Tech London Advocates and Global Tech Advocates, and Sarah Luxford, leader of TLA Women in Tech, will discuss the prevailing gap in digital skills, offering insight to one of the greatest challenges the tech industry faces.
