8th Oct 2019, 5:30pm

Join the Business SIG for an evening panel discussion of what your business needs to do to be attractive (#nofilter) to the upcoming generation of technology leaders.
Registration will open at 17:30 for this quick evening session followed by networking over drinks and pizza!
Millennials have professionally come of age and are offering volumes of skills, character and experience to the business community. Yet with 47% of telecommunications professionals over the age of 50 (The Engineers Survey, 2018) and still only 28% of the digital workforce under the age of 35 (Tech Nation, 2018), many companies remain unsure how to shape their business culture to attract and retain the best emerging talent. The challenge is even harder if you are in a scaling business.
What can you do to compete in this highly competitive job market to ensure you secure the next generation of talent needed for your business’ success?
This event will feature an opening talk by Irene Graham, CEO of the ScaleUp Institute, who will provide an overview of the issues which will then be followed by an interactive panel session. The panel will include:
- Vince Buttle; Director of Operations, Honda F1 Powertrains
- Rajani Rao; Senior Engineer, u-blox
- Christie Civetta; Simprints
- Collette Johnson; GeoSpock
- Helena Berry; Cambridge Enterprise
At this event millennials will share what drives their employment decision-making and #MondayMotivation, with experienced recruiters outlining what has worked when helping firms access young high flyers. We will explore how the next generation of engineers and business leaders see the future in terms of funding, team building, commercials, engineering management, international operations and more.
