Spotting pinch points: Using data to understand clients and offer advisory

“Get closer than ever to your customers. So close that you tell them what they need well before they realize it themselves.” Steve Jobs

It can be difficult to know where to start with the umbrella term 'advisory services'. But before you can successfully offer new service lines, first you need to understand what your clients actually need. What do they worry about? Who do they turn to for advice? Where are the danger spots in their business?

We’re bringing together a group of likeminded practices to share ideas over breakfast. We’ll give you two free tools that will increase your understanding of your clients and help you start offering the right services to the right businesses.

  1. A discussion of the key results of research done by iwoca that gives insight into what 1000 small business owners really feel about finance

  2. A free cashflow health check from Fluidly that provides a detailed analysis of cashflow strengths and weaknesses for one of your clients.

We’ll also have information available about how Fluidly and iwoca can help you build valuable advisory relationships with your clients. Plus - a free breakfast in an Insta-worthy setting

Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference London

The Girls in Tech Catalyst Conference is a can’t miss opportunity to get amped about your career and meet the community of people who can help get you where you want to go! No matter who you are.

Featuring high-energy keynotes, inclusive panel discussions, and breakout sessions with leaders at the forefront of the technology and business sectors, Catalyst offers delegates the opportunity to acquire tactical skills, gain the know-how to navigate career twists and turns, and join a community of role models, mentors, and new friends.

Catalyst welcomes everyone – software engineers, product marketers, human resources pros, investors, university students, data scientists, digital marketers, startup founders, and more.

Studies show two of the biggest reasons people drop out of tech careers are the lack of role models and mentors. At Catalyst, we offer both, and then some.

Whether or not you’re just starting out or changing careers, Catalyst is for people ready to take the next step in their personal and professional lives.

Women In Tech Festival UK 2019

Women In Tech Festival UK 2019

It's no secret that the technology industry suffers diversity issues. Walk into any main-stream tech event and you could probably count the number of women on your hand. The same goes for boardrooms, with many companies still struggling to promote women into senior roles, it's no wonder that women are feeling isolated in the IT sector.


With trying to juggle the seemingly endless ‘duties' of work-life, home-life, and just generally needing more hours in the day, it can feel as though the dream of reaching the ‘next step' is one that's simply too difficult to manage.


It isn't.


Computing and CRN have collaborated to launch the Women in Tech Festival UK. We'll be celebrating successful women in the IT industry, sharing personal experiences of their journeys and the challenges along the way. This one-day event will provide insight from how to create a professional you, to building and maintaining a successful team, and not to forget case studies involving cutting-edge technology.


Whether you're the ‘Next Generation', an ‘Inspirational Leader', or an ‘Innovator of Tech' this event will offer inspiration of not only how to improve yourself, but how to help others too. With a keen focus on addressing diversity throughout the day, this event is for anyone within the industry.

Lunch & Learn: Building Your First Tech Product

As a non-technical founder, building and launching a tech product can be challenging. Should you build a team in-house or work with an agency or manage freelancers yourself? Do you need to build a prototype or a minimum viable product? Guy Brockless will draw upon Creatella's experience co-building over 30 startups, as well as some principles of hypothesis driven entrepreneurship, to explore and explain the options for developing a tech product and some of the common pitfalls founders encounter.

Guy is Creatella's Chief Marketing Officer and works with tech founders advising them in the areas of UX, customer acquisition, engagement and retention. He also co-founded a language learning app, acquiring over 100k users with less than $2k spent.

Lunch will be provided.

Tech Festival; Transforming Retail Together

Tech• is the most important two-day festival of digital commerce and the technology driving it.

3000+ attendees 800+ companies 180+ speakers 100 start-ups

It is the only event where retailers, tech suppliers, FMCGs, start-ups, investors and analysts join forces to work out how they will not only survive the digital revolution, but nail it. At Tech. we put the most disruptive thinkers under the spotlight - from the companies that are revolutionising their industries, to the tech firms creating the most innovative products.

The digital revolution has ushered in the most challenging era in the history of commerce. Technology has destroyed business models that have been the bedrock of the sector for decades. But it has also unlocked new opportunities at an unprecedented pace for those with the agility to seize them. 

New retail ecosystems are being formed, and strategic partnerships and alliances are being announced almost daily, demonstrating the commerce industry’s need to become ever more digitally savvy. Data is the new retail currency, and better understanding your customer, not only on your platform, but across other touchpoints will be the difference between success and failure. 

Tech., the most important two-day festival of digital commerce and the technology driving it, will put this (and more!) under the spotlight by delivering a jam-packed programme crafted with our amazingly talented and super smart group of industry experts

Lessons from Leading Women Tech Entrepreneurs

The November meeting of Women in Telecoms & Technology (WiTT) celebrates women entrepreneurs in tech with a panel discussion among leading women who have founded, grown, sold, and promoted businesses in the tech sector. Our women entrepreneurs event is timed to take place immediately after Global Entrepreneurship Week, which runs from 18-24 November this year.

Audrey Mandela, WiTT Chair and co-founder of Multimap.com, will chair the panel. Our speakers will be announced closer to the date.

Our panel will discuss their views and experiences, including:
• panelists' own challenges in starting and growing (and in some cases selling) their businesses;
• best and worst decisions made while building their businesses;
• whether panelists believe there are differences between male and female entrepreneurs, the types of businesses they start, their management styles, and their experiences raising capital;
• views on scaling up businesses started in the UK; and
• advice for other women entrepreneurs.

We would like to give our sincerest thanks to Bird & Bird for hosting this event.

We look forward to seeing you on November 25th!

London Microservices Meetup with Nicky Wrightson

London Microservices Meetup with Nicky Wrightson

Agenda:

6:30 pm: Arrive, food & drinks, networking

7:00 pm: Brief introductions

7:05 pm: Securing microservices in a serverless world by Andreas Claesson (mnemonic AS)

7:45 pm: Quick 5-minute break

7:50 pm: An Engineer's Guide to a Good Night's Sleep by Nicky Wrightson (Skyscanner)

8:30 pm: Finish, networking

----

We're big supporters of Meetup Mates: https://meetup-mates.com. If you would like to attend this meetup but you feel overwhelmed by the idea of going and networking by yourself, Meetup Mates is a great way to connect with like-minded people to go to meetups with!

----

Securing microservices in a serverless world
Andreas Claesson, mnemonic AS

The world of IT is changing with a vast number of services moving from centralised servers to decentralised server providers the likes of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With the concept of "serverless", the services themselves are also becoming decentralised, meaning that they are broken down into smaller pieces called microservices.

In his presentation, Andreas will explore the major benefits of going serverless, the challenges this approach to architecture presents to traditional IT security, and try to answer the question, "so why isn’t serverless super popular yet?"

The presentation is based on an article published in the annual mnemonic Security Report (www.mnemonic.no/securityreport).

Andreas Claesson works at the European IT and information security company mnemonic as a Senior Security Consultant in their Technical Risk Services department. Based in Oslo, his main focus area is security assessments of cloud environments, which requires a different approach compared to traditional IT security. He has a background in software development giving him an extra dimension in his security work.

----

An Engineer's Guide to a Good Night's Sleep
Nicky Wrightson, Skyscanner

In a time of empowered teams, complex tech stacks, highly distributed systems the support model of years ago needed to adapt. The developers now own how they run and operate their systems including out of hours support. In this talk I will share several approaches and considerations that can help reduce the risk of that dreaded 3am call from Ops.

Nicky is a principal engineer working at Skyscanner and formerly of the Financial Times and has been leading teams for more than 15 years, across a wide range of industries: travel, banking, media and telecommunications. She passionately drives forward cloud native architectures and approaches that allow engineers to deliver deliver business value quickly whilst also reducing the support overhead needed for complex distributed systems.

London Clojure Dojo at uSwitch
Aug
12
6:45 PM18:45

London Clojure Dojo at uSwitch

uSwitch is located on the first floor of the ZPG building at 5 Copper Row, London, SE1 2LH, London (Click on the map for directions)

The Clojure dojo is a collaborative way to learn Clojure/ClojureScript through practice. The aim is to learn a little more than before you started. This event is for those new to coding through to more experienced developers.

We organise into small groups (2-4) people and write code to solve challenges great and small, chosen by those at the event.

We aim to ensure someone in your group has some Clojure experience, so you shouldn't feel lost (well no more than all developers do when Stack Overflow is broken).

Example challenges for the coding dojo are listed on this website: http://www.londonclojurians.org/code-dojo/

# Approximate schedule:

18:40 Doors open and start collecting suggestions
18.45 Pizza should have arrived
19:00 Quick intros and vote on suggestions
19:15 Break out into groups and start practising
21:00 Gather together for a quick show and tell

# What should I bring?

We organise into small groups, so if you have a laptop with a working Clojure environment please bring it along (there are lots of online Clojure environments, so you can just use your browser too).

# How do I get in to the building?

Look for the big ZPG sign and at the glass doors press the buzzer to inform the security guard you are here. Say you are here for the event on the first floor.

Is there way to talk with the Clojure community?

Why yes. The Clojurians Slack channel is full of friendly people who love to try and help. People based in London are often in the #clojure-uk channel. Sign up for a free account to the Clojurians Slack community via http://clojurians.net/

What is Clojure?

Clojure is a JVM language that has syntactically similarities to Lisp, full integration with Java and its libraries and focuses on providing a solution to the issue of single machine concurrency.

Its small core makes it surprisingly easy for Java developers to pick up and it provides a powerful set of concurrency strategies and data structures designed to make immutable data easy to work with. If you went to Rich Hickey’s LJC talk about creating Clojure you’ll already know this, if not it’s well worth watching the Rich Hickey “Clojure for Java Programmers” video or Stuart Halloway “Radical Simplicity” video .

Bluefruit Agile Huddle 2019

Running 5 -16 August, this free programme is for anyone aged 16 and over who has a keen interest in a software development career and wants to find out what it’s like to work as a developer. Hosted at Bluefruit HQ in Redruth, and now in its fifth year, you’ll learn more about coding in a professional environment with trainers who currently work in software companies across Cornwall.

Experience the tech scene in Cornwall

There are over 2300 digital tech jobs in Cornwall, according to Tech Nation. Software development is a core part of many of these jobs but getting the hands-on experience to feel confident in choosing software development as a career can be difficult.

Agile Huddle aims to give you the practical experience that you don’t necessarily get in the classroom or learning by yourself. It aims to give you a taste of what a tech career can be like.

This hands-on two week-programme is a great way to expand your coding skills beyond languages and get a taste of what it’s like working in a team, in Cornwall, and with the kinds of development practises and project management that businesses like Bluefruit use every day.

Who’s the Agile Huddle for?

Aside from having a real passion for programming, this two-week programme is aimed at people who are at any stage in their software engineering education or career. So long as you are aged 16 or over, and you want to learn and work as part of a team, we encourage you to apply.

Myisha Battle, Certified Sex and Dating Coach; Host, "Down for Whatever"
Liz Klinger, Co-Founder and CEO, Lioness
Emma McGowan, Sex Educator; Writer; Sex Columnist, Bustle—Moderator

When sex and technology cross paths, we see a combination of curiosity and censorship, sexism and empowerment, but most importantly, knowledge and pleasure. The intersection between sex and technology goes beyond sex toys—from smart vibrators to apps for your phone that allow you to track and learn from your own experiences—sex tech’s innovation plays a major factor in the future of women’s health and pleasure. Despite these groundbreaking improvements being made for user experience, however, the tech industry continues to reject sex tech and the women who are leading these advancements.

In 2016, Myisha Battle launched Sex for Life, which boasts an array of sex coaching practices as well as the sex-positive podcast “Down for Whatever.” Liz Klinger is the CEO of Lioness, a company focusing on creating products to enable sexual self-discovery and well-being. Andrea Barrica is the founder and CEO of O.school, an online sex-ed platform that aims to revolutionize how we feel, talk and understand sex. Join these experts for a conversation about the many obstacles faced by leaders in the rapidly growing sex tech industry and their road to recognition.

Location: 110 The Embarcadero, Taube Family Auditorium, San Francisco
Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program

Panel: How to kick-start your career in tech

In our first event we explored the importance of mentoring for driving women leaders in tech. So now you have a mentor, you've placed yourself on the tech career ladder, and are looking for opportunities to progress. But... where do you begin?

One of the biggest hurdles to starting your career in tech is dealing with all of the unknowns:

  • How do you spot opportunity?

  • How do you train yourself to take risks and learn from failure?

  • How do you market yourself as a technical expert?

  • How do you deal with imposter syndrome?

In this panel, we try to answer some of these questions with the help of women in tech at every stage in their career.

We have a dream, to inspire every tech-curious woman to join the technology revolution by providing them with a diverse array of female role models, access to the resources that they need and a mentor for life. Our vision is that by 2030, 50% of the tech space is occupied by women.

To keep our events running and to help us to develop the #MentorForLife programme we have added an option to allow you to donate as little or as much as you like. We have suggested a £9 donation, to cover the costs of hosting and filming the event.

This month’s topic is ABCs of Tech for Good - AI, Blockchain, Crypto!

Navigating the recruitment maze: how to find a job you'll love

Hands up if you enjoy job hunting...

We asked this question at a recent event, and there was only one person who said they enjoyed the process of looking for work (and it came with quite a few caveats).

Whether you have broad-ranging skills that don't fit neatly into a box, or you're moving into digital as a second career, returning after a break, or just finding it difficult to find a job you'll love, this event is for you!

We'll be joined by an amazing panel who will be sharing their tips on how to navigate the recruitment maze, stand out and find a job you love (hopefully!).

Our panelists are:
- Jacqui Barratt, Founder & CEO of a recruitment company, salt
In 2003 Jacqui alongside her brother founded salt. Today, salt is globally, the largest specialist digital recruitment company with over 200 staff and offices in New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia, America, UK, and Dubai. Jacqui says, "With 25 years and counting, it’s fair to say that recruitment runs through my body
and soul."
Find out more about Jacqui here: https://www.welovesalt.com/

- Sinead Bunting who specialises in digital performance marketing and creative brand transformation. Most recently she was the VP of Marketing for Monster in Europe, the global jobs website.

- Recruitment coach Ellie Rich-Poole
With over twenty years’ experience both in-house in HR, Resourcing and Talent Management and within Executive Search as a head-hunter, Ellie set up her own business in 2016 to support both organisations and individuals as The Recruitment Coach.
She is a Barefoot trained Coach and a member of the International Coaching Federation. And during a sabbatical in Chile, she took some time out to train with Digital Mums in Social Media Management so she also helps individuals with their social media, as well as leadership teams who want to improve how they use LinkedIn in relation to their employer brand.

Think Creatively In The Age of Digital Distractions - by a TEDx speaker

Think Creatively In The Age of Digital Distractions - by a TEDx speaker

If you live in the UK, 35% of your job will be taken by robots in the next 10-20 years. In the US, this reaches 47%. However, the more creative element your job has, the less likely it is to be automated. But creativity needs brain space and a calm mind - a big luxury these days.

In this brand new, interactive and highly insightful talk a TEDx speaker, author of "Homo Distractus" and digital wellness thought leader Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina explores, how to build creative thinking in the age of digital distractions to prepare ourselves for the future. We'll discuss, whether robots can be creative, what makes someone creative from the neuroscience perspective, and the impact of information overload and digital distractions on creativity.

Questions we will be covered:

- What is creativity from the neuroscience perspective? What happens with your brain when you have an ‘AHA!’ moment?

- Relationship between daydreaming, boredom and creativity.

- What can we learn about ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ creativity from the Nobel prize winner Daniel Kahneman?

- What are the impact of information overload and digital distractions on creativity? How do our devices impact our two brain systems?

- The future of work. Why it’s vital to keep developing creativity in the age of Artificial Intelligence. What can and can’t robots do?

- How can technology be helpful to enhance creativity and innovative culture? How can it intervene?

- How do you encourage creative thinking and innovation in yourself?


Schedule:

17.30h - Open Doors
18h - 19:00h Talk

REGISTRATION AND ADVANCED TICKET PURCHASE MANDATORY! No tickets at the door


About the speaker:

Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina, TEDx speaker, international coach, author of Homo Distractus, and founder of a London-based tech-life balance consultancy Consciously Digital.

The Drone Tech Conference London

Description

The highly anticipated Drone Tech Conference London, will commence on the 18th July 2019.

The conference is the first of it’s kind in London, bringing together important stakeholders, experts, companies and government bodies together to work towards the responsible growth of this incredibly innovative and diverse industry. The drone industry impacts every major industry in the UK, from healthcare, to transport, to construction, etc. The benefits of supporting and growing the industry are huge, but naturally with any major disrupter tech, there are major concerns.

Drone tech can be a game changer, fiscally alone it has a potential uplift of £42 billion in GDP over the next 10 years, but more than that, drone tech can save lives, both through fast access to time sensitive medication, and by reducing accidents in industry and on roads. The industry can also make vast improvements to environmental issues, reducing waste and fuel use, while making another 628000 jobs for the UK economy.

But privacy concerns, and safety concerns, particularly around air traffic are important. And there are solutions we should be addressing to lessen these concerns.

At the Drone Tech Conference London, the many potentials and pitfalls of the industry will be explored, and the platform will connect investors, corporates and government, and is a must attend events for senior industry stakeholders. This conference will be the first of its kind, bringing together important stakeholders in the drone industry, and the most innovative companies in 2019 together to emphasise how important the drone industry will be for London over the next 10 years.

We will hear talks and panels from NATS, UK Parliament, SkyPorts, NATS, RelmaTech, PWC, Drone Major Group and ARPAS.

Invited will be all major media outlets, major industry stakeholders, drone innovators, investors, experts and drone communities.
