Covid-19 and the new normal for tech

The global pandemic has forced a huge shift in how work gets done. Many tech companies have made the shift to remote-first working. Whilst for the most part this has improved many peoples work-life balance, we have also lost a lot of the things that lead to innovation in the workplace, such as serendipitous conversations, mentoring of less experienced staff and opportunities to gather together at events face-to-face. So what does the future hold? How, as tech leaders, can we balance both face to face and remote-first working? Do we divert investment to get people together for more "off sites"? Do we create more, smaller hubs as our colleagues move away from cities to the countryside? This is an opportunity to share our thoughts on the future of the tech workspace.

Join us for this Live Panel discussion with 4 industry leaders & moderator James Lewis. Learn how seasoned tech leaders took charge of changes in their respective lines of business, their paths to the next normal & the lessons they have learned during this global pandemic.
