Fostering the next generation of digital talent

On May 21st, between 4pm-6pm, Digital Leaders South East will be holding an event in Brighton to discuss how the public and private sector can collaborate to help foster the next generation of digital talent and plug the digital skills gap.

Estimates from the Science Council suggest that the ICT workforce will grow by 39 per cent by 2030, and a 2013 report from O2 stated that around 745,000 additional workers with digital skills will be needed to meet demand between now and 2017.

This event will discuss:

  • How can we collaborate to help support the next generation of digital talent?
  • What role can the public sector and private sector pay in plugging the digital skills gap?
  • How can we ensure that the skills are developed to support the digital businesses of tomorrow?

Digital Leaders South East Salons are limited to 30 places and tea and coffee will be available on arrival so please book your places now to avoid disappointment. The Salon will be followed by networking drinks.
