When we think of technology companies, it’s usually the big players who spring to mind. Did you know that Apple, Google, Amazon and Facebook have a combined worth of over $3.5 trillion and employ thousands of people all over the world?!
BUT it’s not just these industry giants who need tech superstars. Tech plays a role in virtually (excuse the pun!) every company out there. So while that’s super-exciting for those of you who find technology fascinating and inspiring, it’s also a pretty confusing landscape to wrap your head around.
Luckily our February Women in Tech Roundtable gives you access to 4 incredibly inspirational ladies who each work in dynamic tech roles across a variety of industries, and have experience both here and overseas.
– Get the real down-low on coding, whether you need it and where it could take you
– Find out tips and tricks to prepare for (and land!) an awesome job using your tech skills
– Gain insight into the ’start-up’ space and why 99% of them appear to be tech-based
– And discover what it’s like to run your very own tech company – the highs, lows and exciting possibilities
After hearing each woman’s journey story, we’ll dive straight into the Speed Networking Roundtable – where in small groups you’ll rotate spending approx 20 mins with each Extraordinary Women, on hand to answer your burning questions.
